About Sara, Dumolt said, “Sara Oney was a student of mine in both World History and Current Issues. Through her hard work and commitment to her studies, she excelled in both classes. Sara always displayed a positive attitude in class. Her positive attitude set the tone for our classes and for the many activities that Sara has conducted throughout her high school career here at London.
