Sarah Crutchfield ’02 Schmidgall joined the Jr./Sr. Scholars summer campers for a day of activities designed to showcase the program’s many facets for parents and sponsors. Schmidgall read a book with the fourth grade class, “Mae Among the Stars,” and later attended the group’s jazz lesson with Janice Borla, North Central College vocal jazz instructor. As president of The Schmidgall Family Foundation, she awarded the program a $10,000 grant in December 2017. The foundation was established by her and husband Matthew to fund causes that break the cycle of poverty. “I was involved with the Jr./Sr. Scholars program while I attended North Central,” she explained. “It really matches our values.” Schmidgall, a computer science major, held several positions in the software industry and now owns Stanbridge Master Saddlers in St. Charles, Ill.
