As the president of the senior class and NHS as well as a member of Shore Regional High School’s varsity cross country and track teams, senior Sarah Lang of Monmouth Beach is running all over the place.

Lang began running in fifth grade when she participated in her middle school cross country program. This experience inspired her to continue her running career in high school as a member of the cross country, indoor track and outdoor track teams at her home school.

“When I finish my race and beat my time, it gives me the confidence to know I can work towards any goal,” Lang said.

She uses this mindset to not only accomplish greater goals on the track but also in her leadership roles at CHS.

I decided to run for class council and NHS council because they are two clubs that I am passionate about, and I wanted to continue to work with others to organize fundraisers and events,” Lang said.

Lang was the co-president of the Class of 2017 for the 2015-16 school year and took on tasks such as organizing the senior class trip, prom and both spirit weeks. She was also able to lead the class to a fall Spirit Week victory. This year, in addition to class president, Lang will lead NHS.

Taking on both of these positions in addition to schoolwork and running, Lang has her hands full for senior year.

“I manage the load by using my time well. I get work done during lunch, and when I get home from practice, I start my work right away. I just have to stay focused,” Lang said.

But no matter how daunting the task may seem, she finds the time commitment incredibly rewarding.

“I really enjoy working with others and seeing something we helped organize come together,” Lang said. “These leadership roles allow me to do that.”

Although this will be her first year of high school juggling two “president” titles and running, the experience is all too familiar for Lang. In middle school, she held positions on both class council and the National Junior Honor Society on top of running on her school’s cross country team.

“It’s funny how some things never change,” Lang said.
