Norman North's Sarah Worth Academic Athlete of the Month sponsored by Republic Bank and Trust


Written by Kelsey Baucom

Norman North’s Sarah Worth balances a busy schedule. She’s committed to playing softball and being involved with clubs such as DECA, Teen Volunteers, and Young Republicans. In addition to these, she also became a member of the National Honor Society this year. She seems to have a heart for others, and is already looking forward to the opportunities NHS will bring to be a light to others.

“I plan to volunteer at homeless shelters and visit OU Children’s [Hospital] to encourage many kids who may be struggling with hope or loss of fight to conquer whatever is going on at the time,” said Worth.

Even with so many extracurricular activities going on, Worth still makes sure her academics are a priority. She won’t accept anything less than her personal best.

“I want to maintain good grades along with playing softball, and I’m motivated by success because failure is a disappointment,” she said. “I’m proud of myself for being a part of National Honor Society and for challenging myself by taking AP chem this year.”

One person who helped motivate Worth to work hard in the classroom is Mr. Walker, her chemistry teacher her freshman year.

“He would challenge me tremendously by never giving me simple answers to anything without me going through every possibility,” said Worth. “Mr. Walker influenced me by his positive mindset, and he helped me to believe I can truly accomplish anything I set my mind to.”

Worth will take this sentiment with her after graduation when she plans to, in her words, “become either an entrepreneur, cardiologist, or possibly both.”
