GALION — A Galion High school graduate is doing something many college graduates do not do.
Sarah Walter decided to come back to Crawford County to live and work.
After graduating from Galion High School in 2006, Sarah headed off to Spring Arbor, a private Christian university located in Spring Arbor, Michigan.
“I went to law school at George Washington University in Washington D.C.,” said Sarah, the daughter of Pastor Paul Walter and local school teacher, Cheryl Walter.
Sarah majored in political science at Spring Arbor and enjoys practicing business law the most.
“There is such a variety in business law, from contracts to compliance issues. I really enjoy it,” Sarah said.
Sarah was sworn-in to the Ohio Bar Association in November, but has worked at Martin and Stone, LLC in Bucyrus since July of 2014.
“My school has a program in which they will pay for graduates to work at a law firm for a period of time to get the experience we need,” Sarah explained. “I researched law firms in Crawford County because I wanted to come back here to work. Many college graduates do not do that. They end up working in the location of the college or university they attended, but there is a need for some of us to come back to our hometowns.”
Sarah recently signed her own contract, to purchase her first home in Galion.
“I am so excited,” she said.
Sarah is may types of law at Martin and Stone.
“I have been doing a variety of law including juvenile law, domestic relations and misdemeanor criminal. I really like it here, everyone has been wonderful to me,” Sarah said.
