Sara Ann Rogle, 17, who graduated from Bowie High School today , said she has long wanted to be a teacher.
But after visiting Haiti last summer on a mission trip, the Bowie resident said she realized more than ever how much she wants to work with young children.
“Their faces lit up, and they were smiling and jumping around,” she said.
Rogle visited the capital, Port-au-Prince, during an August 2011 trip organized by Marilee Ness, youth coordinator at Bowie’s Christian Community Presbyterian Church, which Rogle attends.
“They were so glad we were there and to have fun with us,” said Rogle, who worked with as many as 200 children along with Ness and friends Christopher Leaman of Crofton and Daniel Casto of Bowie, who also went on the trip.
