IN MEMORIAM

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Sarah Swiger, friend and long-time member of the Winchester League, on November 22nd. Sarah's outstanding service to the town included 16 years on the School Board, over 20 years as a Town Meeting Member. An advocate for children, she played a key role in passage of the Massachusetts' first Education Reform Act. We were pleased to honor Sarah with the 2014 LWV Winchester Civic Leadership Award.
Sarah's dedication to public service did not stop at the local level. She was a key figure in influencing the passage of Massachusetts' first Education Reform Act & its subsequent amendments. - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/wickedlocal-winchester/obituary.aspx?pid=173264368#sthash.PGJ92PbZ.dpuf
