When seeking examples of the creativity, intelligence, drive and perseverance so common to Unity graduates, one might easily locate Sara Trunzo ’08 in the Sustainability Office.
As Unity’s Food and Farm Projects Coordinator, Trunzo has not only led a multi-year period of growth related to the quantity and quality of produce grown on campus, but is deeply involved in area food security issues.
Truzo has helped to transform operations at several Unity area food pantries, developing web sites and educational programs to better serve clients. There are few projects too big or too small for Trunzo. Paint brush in hand, she would gladly field an interview about the Unity Area Food Pantry’s web site upgrade while continuing to paint one of its rooms in the old Unity Fire House on Depot Street. Such are the multi-tasking skills that embody this modern day Renaissance woman. Her advocacy for regional food security and hands-on knowledge of agricultural issues have made her a “go to” expert.
The message is clear: Trunzo sees no limitations to what she may achieve or the possibilities before her, and credits the broad skills she gained as a Unity College undergraduate with her achievements.
Unity alumni are also deeply connected to the College, in some cases directly supporting academics.
