QVCC Alumna Sarah Wolfburg ’02 Joins Foundation Staff as Director of Alumni Relations

Quinebaug Valley Community College is very excited to welcome Sarah Wolfburg back to campus. On Monday, December 14, she joined the QVCC Foundation as the Director of Alumni Relations.

Raised locally in Plainfield, Connecticut, Sarah graduated from QVCC in 2002 and went on to earn both a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts in English at Memorial University of Newfoundland in Canada. After returning to Connecticut, Sarah began working for Villager Newspapers. In 2015, Sarah became the first Executive Director for Northeast Opportunities for Wellness, Inc. (NOW), a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of youth wellness, offering scholarship opportunities to children in the region to access sports, fitness, and nutrition.

“Sarah exemplifies what we hope for in all our graduates: a person who has gone on to pursue her dreams while never forgetting where she started. Sarah’s learning curve will not be steep as over the past few years, in addition to her career and family responsibilities, she has made time to volunteer at QVCC Foundation events and served as an inaugural member of the Alumni Association Advisory Committee. I know our alumni and our students will benefit from having Sarah join our team,” said Monique Wolanin, Director of Institutional Advancement.

In addition to her professional roles, Sarah has served on the executive boards of both the Quinebaug Valley Regional Rotaract Club and the Putnam Business Association, including serving as chairperson of the First Fridays Committee. She resides in Brooklyn, Connecticut with her husband, Josh, and their son, William. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, reading, painting, and traveling.

Sarah is eager to make connections with QVCC faculty, staff, students and alumni, sharing “I am thrilled to be taking on the Director of Alumni Relations role with the QVCC Foundation. As a proud alumna, I am excited to engage with past, current, and future QVCC students. I believe in the power and importance of education and it is an honor to have the opportunity to support the students of QVCC.” Sarah can be reached by email at swolfburg@qvcc.edu or by phone at (860) 932-4133.
