Harper's Unsung Hero - Thom Shipley

Thom Shipley experienced great success as a high school baseball player. He was blessed with the opportunity to play Division One college baseball and even spent a summer season as a teammate of Baseball  Hall of Famer Derek Jeter, on an all-star high school baseball team. He had aspirations of playing professionally but injuries cut his dreams short. His story shows us that happiness is there for the taking even when things don’t go as planned.

Harper's Unsung Hero - Sarah Piotrowski

Sarah knew early on that she wanted to be a teacher. As a little girl she spent hours playing school at home. Read her story and learn of her journey that has led her to Sonoma Elementary as a teacher for students with emotional impairments. Every day she creates a safe and accepting environment for some of our most vulnerable children.
