  • Lincoln Days Volunteer Spotlight: Sarah Graham

    In 2013, I was asked to be a part of Leadership Larue County. When the class started they guaranteed us that we would learn something about the town we lived in. I’ll be honest, I thought that was impossible since I was born and raised here. Ironically, I ended up learning many things I never knew, but the thing that stuck with me the most was the sense of civic duty that I felt.
