Hello, my name is Sarah Philips. I’m a 2023 graduate from Gilmer High School. I’ve lived in Gilmer my whole life and have shown animals in the East Texas Yamboree Livestock Show and Auction for 5 years now. I’ve grown up playing softball here in Gilmer. I’ve played for 10 years now and I will also play in college. I will be attending Harding University in the fall on scholarship and plan on majoring in nursing. Harding is a D2 private Christian school in Searcy Arkansas with an exceptional nursing program. I am super excited about my opportunity to go to college and excel in my softball as well as academics.
