The Sara Sterphone Memorial Fund was established in honor and memory of Sara who worked steadfastly and compassionately at CCS, starting in March 2013 as an Academic Advisor and then the College's Lead Academic Advisor from September 2014 through 2019. Sara went well beyond her responsibilities to make sure every student was heard and respected as well as felt part of the larger CCS community. In memory of Sara’s passion and dedication for service to the community, the CCS Student Service Award was renamed to the College of Creative Studies Sara Sterphone Student Service Award. This recognition is given to CCS students with a financial award for outstanding contributions to the intellectual and social life of the College of Creative Studies. The fund will support this award and also student activities and extracurricular programming to honor Sara’s commitment to the CCS student community.
