Mazel Tov to Sadie Begtrup


Sadie Begtrup, USN c/o ‘24 senior, is a 2024 Mary Strobel Volunteer Award Finalist, selected and presented by Hands On Nashville and United Way of Greater Nashville! 

The Youth Volunteer Award recognizes individuals who contributed significant volunteer time, energy, and/or resources to help the community.  

 Sadie’s love of nature has transformed into volunteering for the Nashville Tree Foundation (NTF)for more than 13 years, where she became the youngest Green Shirt volunteer and has personally planted and helped distribute more than 600 trees. In addition to her years of work with NTF, she also volunteers with Room in the Inn, Nashville Shakespeare Festival, the Frist Art Museum, and Sherith Israel Orthodox Synagogue. She has helped transport 250 homeless men and women to shelters, assisted with 12 Shakespeare performances, completed 25 hours of manned art engagement, and can routinely be seen greeting, directing, and engaging the community in religious education and exposure.
