Sarah Mayer ’21

Furlong, PennsylvaniaBryn Mawr College
As on teams, Sarah finds that there is no “i” in “performance class”; it is a group effort.

Is there a teacher who has made a big impact on you?

Nancy Kryven is by far one of the best teachers and advisors I’ve ever had. She creates an accepting atmosphere, will work with students until they understand, has a terrific sense of humor, and has a beautiful loving soul.

What is your most interesting activity outside of the classroom?

I really enjoy participating in the performance classes because I can partake in my passion for acting, singing, and dancing with all of my peers.

If you talk to an athlete, they will tell you that their sports team is like a family. The same is true for the performance class. You place trust in your castmates, the stage crew, the director, etc., to make sure a show runs smoothly, and you work with a lot of the same people for three terms, building a real bond.

Describe a quintessential George School moment.

One of my favorite times at George School is Student Council Weekend in the spring. Student Council plans really fun activities, like a bounce house (there’s usually three), open mic, and a slip ’n slide. We also celebrate Holi, and by the end, we are all covered in colored dye. It is so much fun! Everyone is laughing and singing along to the music. This is definitely one of the best weekends at George School.
