Making a difference for youth through the Meigs County Fair: Sarah Lawrence

Elizabeth Lawrence

MEIGS COUNTY, Ohio – There are several ways to support the Meigs County Fair: ad sponsor, day sponsor, event sponsor, purchase livestock at the sale, etc.

You are making a difference in the Youth of Meigs County and here is a good example.

Everyone meet Sarah Lawrence.

For Lawrence participating in the Meigs County Fair has always been a family affair. She started entering projects into the domestic arts categories for sewing, knitting, photography, and baking from a young age. She also joined 4-H when she was old enough and began to exhibit livestock and still projects. The Meigs County Fair has always been a place for Sarah to learn and practice life skills that would be important to her future success. The Fair was a place where you she could always go and see people working hard to achieve success in whatever they were doing.

Today Lawrence is a graduate of the University of Toledo and a Chapter Operations Manager for the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS). Her job takes her around the country making campus visits and connecting with members of the society. She continues to come home to Meigs County every chance she gets and still has an active role in the Jr. Fair as one of the Royalty Advisors alongside her mom.

Lawrence is thankful for everyone that supports the efforts of the Meigs County Fair because they are truly making a big impact on the youth of Meigs County.

The 2019 Meigs County Fair is scheduled for August 12-17 and the theme for this year ties in with Meigs County’s Bicentennial Celebration, “Celebrating 200 Years of Meigs County with Carnival Lights & Country Nights.”
