Tri-C Famous: Sara Fuller
#TriCFamous is a bimonthly feature that introduces readers to the people who make the College work while providing a sneak peek into their lives off campus.
Sara Fuller joined Tri-C in spring 2014 as an adjunct instructor and later became an assistant professor of English at the College’s Westshore Campus. She also serves as faculty development coordinator for the campus. Learn more about Sara — including why you might occasionally hear her scream during a virtual meeting — in this week’s Tri-C Famous.
1. Who do you look up to the most, and why?
My late Uncle John grew up poor and spent time in an orphanage before putting himself through college at Case Western Reserve University. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis during law school, and he was a quadriplegic by the time I was born. Despite those challenges, he was the most loving father and husband I’ve ever known — and one of my biggest supporters. He was also hilarious, handsome, intelligent, driven and passionate.
2. Have you ever won a contest? What was it, and what did you win?
When I was in kindergarten, I won an egg decorating contest at the zoo with my brother and cousin. We created a scene of zoo animals made out of eggs. Our prize was a preserved ostrich egg shell. It still sits in a glass candy dish in my parents’ china cabinet.
3. Tell us about your pet.
My cat is named Titus Andronicus after Shakespeare’s titular character. He loves to be next to me or on my lap at all times. He especially loves to attack me when I’m unmuted on a video call! Having him to keep me company during the pandemic has really saved my sanity.
