Sarah E. Maloney '61

Sculptor, Teacher and Journalist

The desire to succeed and a love of learning were qualities instilled in Sarah Sesher Maloney by her Hutchinson High School education.

She attended Hutchinson Junior College and Kansas University to study English and Journalism. Maloney worked as a small feature story and obituary writer for The Wichita Eagle and as a feature writer and reporter in the family/society section at The Knickerbocker News, Albany, NY. She has also written advertising copy and for Media Services, LTD in State College, PA, where she became a member of the Women's Press Club. Maloney chose to stay home while her children were in school and returned to complete her degrees and begin a teaching career.

In 1994, at the age of 50, Maloney discovered sculpture and immediately knew it was an interest she would pursue for the rest of her life. After moving to Denver, she was hired to work on the New Jersey Korean War Memorial, which was dedicated at the corner of Boardwalk and Park Place in Atlantic City, NJ in November of 2000. Other projects include sculpting life-sized statues and teaching sculpture at her studio. Many of her works are included in private collections.

Sharing her love of art and love of learning assures Sarah E. Maloney a prominent place on the Wall of Honor.
