Sarah Stivers, a 53 year-old small business owner and successful performer, is still paying on her student loans. She knows, first-hand, that paying for an education should not take 20 years! Sarah believes training comes in many forms (trade schools, two-year and four-year programs, union apprenticeships, etc.) and, because education is a critical tool for getting out of poverty and establishing independence, it should be accessible and affordable to all. A former teacher and site-based schools committee volunteer, Sarah Stivers has the knowledge and experience to shape the education budget and school safety dialogues so that Hoosier tax payers and students win.
