Introducing the Peer Fellows: Sarah Wuellner ’24

Hi everyone! My name is Sarah Wuellner, and I am a senior from Leesburg, Ohio triple majoring in education, theatre, and journalism with a minor in communications. I am one of the peer fellows for the Social Impact, Education, and Government Career Community through the Knowlton Center for Career Exploration.

I love getting involved at Denison and I like to try new things each semester because you never know until you try! On-campus I am a cheerleader, Senator for the Denison Campus Governance Association, a performer & the PR Chair for Sketch’rs Comedy Troupe, a radio host for The Doobie, a writer for The Denisonian, the president of Theta Alpha Phi (TAP) Theatre Honors Society, a fellow for the theatre department, and a member of Mortar Board. For all things Educational Studies related, I am a co-president for Denison’s Ohio Education Association- Aspiring Educators (OEA-AE) chapter, member of Kappa Delta Pi (KDP) Education Honors Society, and a fellow for the education department.

Over the summer I worked as the lead camp counselor at the YMCA summer day camp. This was my third year working with the kids. I learned more about myself as an educator and how I can encourage my campers to be responsible, respectful, honest, and caring, all of the YMCA’s core values. Working with the YMCA was gratifying as it showed me a different perspective of teaching by working with kids outside of the classroom. At times I had faced challenges, but I was able to stay resilient and make sure that summer camp was a fun, inclusive, and safe space for everyone. I also received internship funding from the Knowlton Center for my internship with the local newspaper in my hometown.

I have worked in a variety of positions at Denison, but as of right now along with working as a peer fellow, I am a marketing intern for the Vail Series, and front of house staff for the Eisner Center for Performing Arts. I also work at two after school care programs in Granville, Welsh Hills School and Granville Elementary. After Denison I would like to teach 2nd or 3rd grade or theatre classes while also directing plays. I also hope to act in movies and television shows or be a television news reporter. I am always on the lookout for awesome internships and jobs so get excited for what awaits this year!

I am looking forward to working with the Social Impact, Education, and Government Career Community to support students in fulfilling their dreams for their future after Denison. I am excited to provide my experience and knowledge from attending a variety of events in the past offered by the Knowlton Center, taking classes with the education department, and working in a variety of educational settings. I am a strong believer in putting yourself out there and taking advantage of all the opportunities Denison provides us. I encourage everyone to utilize the Knowlton Center’s resources from resume workshops to alumni panels and more.
