Seneca’s Sarah Starchman – Mom Spotlight – Presented by Flooring USA

Sarah Starchman is a mom of four, two of which are still in high school. She says that athletics is a big part of helping them become who they will be when they get older. 

“It’s so important to me to prioritize the kids’ activities,” she said. “Because it’s what’s important to them. It’s such an important part of who they are and makes such an impact on who they are becoming. They need to know that no matter what happens; good, bad, ugly, win or lose, varsity or junior varsity, they are my priority. I got them one hundred percent. I never want them to be out there giving their all and leaving a piece of themselves out there without knowing they can look up and find mom support.”

Working at her kid’s school is something that Starchman has enjoyed. 

“I am so lucky to be the secretary at the school that my kids attend,” she said. “It has been such a great life experience. My daughter Abigail is a senior. She had a solid junior high career, but she decided to move away from it when she moved to high school. My son, Cedar, is a sophomore who plays football and will have to decide between basketball and wrestling this winter. That will be a tough decision for him.”

Along with working at the school and serves the athletic department in a few different ways. 

“I’m the food mom,” she said. “You won’t get on a bus to travel to a game or match without food. I organize donations from our team’s parents and send a Brown Bag Special for the bus ride. I also can be found in the Cow Bell Mom section of the football bleachers. I have been a Booster Club member in the past but not a very active or helpful member, so I have not asked to be a part of it again the last couple of years. Being here at the school & supporting the team in other ways gives me the feeling of being helpful & supportive at a level of commitment that works for me right now.”
