Roughrider Keeps Her Plate Full

April 19, 2013

ST. MARYS — Senior Sarah Mabry, 17, is and has always been involved in just about every kind of activity Memorial High School has to offer.

Up until this year, she was a member of FCA, FCCLA, Relay for Life and Friends for Rachel. That’s not counting varsity volleyball and softball, in which she still participates. Sports are fun for Mabry, and a good way to stay busy, but FCA was easily her favorite activity, and probably her favorite thing about high school.
