Aunt Sarah Program


Dear Current and Former Aunt Sarah’s,


It is that time of year where we try to update our Aunt Sarah master list and make new pairings. We currently have received over 30 new student applications. We greatly appreciate an email reply to indicate the name(s) of student(s) you are keeping or if you are interested in a new assignment. Sometimes you hear directly about a student coming and going before we do.


We will be encouraging new volunteers in the e-news, outreach to class officers and Facebook via AR Wilson and Alumnae Association of Wilson College. Please feel free to encourage your classmates and friends to give Aunt Sarah a try. Additional information is available online at


Over the years we are seeing greater correspondence, connections and appreciation for this Wilson tradition. If you have any difficulty in reaching your student, we need to know so we can facilitate the process for resolution. We also tell the students to contact us if they have any difficulty reaching you.


Some of you had asked for a break over the past years due to various personal or employment transitions. We shall leave you marked as “not at this time” unless we hear differently from you.
