She was nominated for this award by Dr. Yohuru Williams: “In New York, she is a tireless ambassador of US History, serving as a writer and reviewer. Through her national profile as a writer, she finds ways to make history accessible to a wider audience. As a sought-after contributor to video series for students, she demonstrates her passion and facility with teaching that has inspired countless students and made her a sought-after curriculum specialist. What I admire most about Sari is her boundless energy and desire to share history in any form. While she could easily be teaching at a university or dedicating her energies full time to public history, she is deeply committed to K-12 Education and has exhibited not only a deep concern but sincere joy in helping to shape curriculum.”
