Sarah’s personal passion is coaching high school debate, and in her post-retirement career, she envisions starting a speech and debate-centered high school for at-risk young people in New Orleans. Her husband, Peter, is hoping that his command of six languages will entice her to travel overseas. Her adult children living in NYC hope her travels only occasionally take her to Manhattan.
