Sarah Stone Gregorich graduated from Wardlaw Academy as the 2006 Valedictorian. She went to Clemson University and received her Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education in 2010. She continued her education at Clemson and earned her Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She spent the following two years working and acquiring her South Carolina state licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor. Sarah has worked at AnMed Health Cancer Center as the Oncology Counselor for 5 years. There she counsels cancer patients and family members in both individual and group counseling settings to help assist them in coping with their diagnosis.
Upon graduation from Wardlaw Academy, Sarah was awarded the South Carolina Life Scholarship as well as the Coca Cola Scholarship. Because of her education and social development at Wardlaw, she felt prepared, confident, and excited about her transition into college life at Clemson. The biggest piece of advice she would give current Wardlaw students about preparing for college would be to realize that college preparation begins early. It is important to start early considering your grades, extracurricular activities, and volunteer opportunities because all of these matter when applying to colleges.
She has so many fond memories of her time at Wardlaw. She loved football Friday nights as a Wardlaw cheerleader, FCA meetings, and participating in Student Body Government. One activity she found incredibly rewarding was her time serving as the yearbook editor. During this opportunity, she was able to see the school and its students from a unique perspective.
Her time at Wardlaw (K4-12th grade) helped shape her into the person she is today and prepared her for life after high school and college.
