Spotlight on Centurions – Sarah Reape

Sarah Reape, a member of the Centurions Fall Class of 2020, traversed Missouri to end up in Kansas City. This St. Louis native is the regional director of The Literacy Lab, a non profit that places full-time, professional literacy tutors in schools, preschool through third grade, to help struggling readers. Married with two dogs, Sarah has enjoyed Centurions, and she is co-chairman of the diversity, equity, and inclusion committee, and supported the Nonprofits and Philanthropy Task Force. She has also spent more than 10 years volunteering with organizations that support survivors of sexual abuse, assault, and domestic violence. Sarah holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in public administration, both from the University of Missouri–Kansas City.
