About Me

Hi! 
My name is Sara Maddux and this is my second year at Athlos! I moved from South Carolina last summer and received my bachelors in Early Childhood Education from the University of South Carolina-Columbia. Outside of school, I enjoy playing basketball and cooking! I am so excited for this school year and cannot wait to connect with you all!
