Meet an OPA Member: Sarah Chenoweth Davis

Three things about Sarah that have nothing to do with clay.

1. I have a degree in biology from the College of Wooster, and studied wolf howling for my senior thesis.

2. I have a marvelous collection of PEZ dispensers. My favorite is Wonder Woman (although she has a broken foot). The most valuable is Silver Glow, a silver classic PEZ dispenser with no head (looks like a cigarette lighter).

3. I played French horn for 5 years (5th-9th grade). Marching band was super fun, but I don't think I ever really learned how to sight read music. I stopped playing after my family moved, and I didn't enjoy playing at my new school.
