Community Leader Sarah Milton

My name is Sarah Milton and I’m from Orlando, FL born and raised in the Parramore neighborhood. Yes, I’m a native. My earliest memory of this area was when I went to Callahan Elementary School… It is now called Callahan Neighborhood Center … they turned it into Jones High School for some years and now it’s a Neighborhood Center. I worked 1984-1989 in their rec center every summer when I was 25-30 years old. I loved it! I started working with kids when I was a kid….


 

In this oral history interview with Community Leader Sarah Milton at Grand Avenue Primary Learning Center on May 31, 2013, we learn about the neighborhood life of Parramore and the dedication of a Boy Scout leader, Girl Scout leader, School Coach, and Jones High School star athlete who beat the odds.
