77. Sarah Logan (LGB 1985)

Posted By Alumni Office, mardi 2 décembre 2014
Sarah Logan1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
From 1976 to 1984.

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?
Like many others, we moved to Geneva for my father’s job.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?

Mr. Orange – I STILL use that darn margin template he taught us when I write and I still haven’t gotten over being “fired” from the school musical because I was late two days in a row…never mind that I was getting help with some math from Mr. Cooper!! Mr. Dorsay – who made me love art and believe that even though I had no talent, I could still make beautiful things. And Mr. Borle – who challenged us all in the first week of school that a “7” in his class could never happen because no one was perfect. Guess what Mr. Borle? I was only perfect once!

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
The radiators by the windows in the cafeteria where we all used to hang out in the winters. Many a friendship was fostered there. What a shame that wonderful old cafeteria is gone. The Greek Theatre – does anyone realise what an amazing thing it was/is? Every school should have one. And of course, the senior hill – how could you have a boyfriend without it?!

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
Vielle Ville, Molard, Verbier, Auberge de la Poste, Shorts, the quai that went out to the Jet d’Eau, the excessiveness of Rue du Rhône, the farmers' market at Rive on Wednesday and Saturday.

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
Today I live on a lake, not nearly as beautiful as Léman, in a bizarre little town about 45 minutes west of New York City. I work as a veterinarian and have my own practice. I am married for 18 years (wow…) and am a mother to three amazing kids, two dogs and a very obnoxious cat.

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
Continue to foster understanding, tolerance, patience and collaboration that seems to exist at Ecolint without anyone trying to create it. To me, that is one of the most remarkable things about Ecolint. Religion, colour, ethnicity, language and socioeconomic differences seem to blend together as “Ecolintism”. Students learn to like or dislike one another for the person or personality, not because they are “different”. We were all different. And in being so, we were all one.  

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?
You cannot possibly understand, at such a young age, the miracle of what happens at Ecolint. It is not something that years of administrators can take credit for…it just happens. Learn from your teachers, your peers, your mentors. Try to understand each and every point of view that is presented to you before you take a side. Try to understand that each story has more than one side and that you will go further with inquiry and tolerance than anything else. There is no one right way to see or do anything. The vastness of life’s possibilities are all around you in your peers. Embrace them.

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
Open mindedness. Tolerance. To have huge aspirations. Never take no for an answer. Work hard. Play hard. And an effort to try and instill those things in my own children.
