Betty Sawyer

Betty Sawyer Job title: Academic Outreach Support Coordinator (Ogden GEAR UP)

What is your favorite band/music?: Caro Emerald

What is your favorite part of your job?: Working to help underrepresented students prepare for a successful college career. It is exciting to see former students enjoying college and being successful.

What was your experience in your field before this position?: Though I have been in this position for 9 months, I have worked in outreach at Weber for 6 ½ years. I also taught in public schools for 4 years.

What advice would you have for students who have future aspirations of attaining your job title?: Working to prepare students for college is exciting. It has its discouragements (students choosing not to attend college, or to quit after only one semester, etc.), but the rewards far outweigh the disappointments.

What makes you smile each morning as you prepare to start the day?: I love waking up next to my sweetheart of 17 years (is that too mushy?). It makes me happy to know that I have a family that really knows me and still loves me.
