Photo of Dr. Sarah MarriottDr. Sarah Marriott is the Superintendent of the Boonville School District.  After graduating from Boonville High School, she attended the University of MO-Columbia for both her undergraduate and graduate degrees and Saint Louis University for her doctoral degree. Dr. Marriott knew from a young age that education was the career path for her to make her life what she wanted it to be. She wanted to create the same opportunities for others so they can have the same experiences. Dr. Marriott truly believes your life should be a life of service to others. She wanted to become an administrator because  the Boonville School District created so many different opportunities for her.

 Working in education was a way she could give back to the school that gave her so much. Her favorite memory in the Boonville school district was making the friends that she did, “I am still friends with many today.  I met my best friend in the 3rd grade and my husband and I became friends in high school.”

 Dr. Marriott loves to run “I get up really early every day (4:30AM) and run with one of my best friends.  It is a great way to start my day.” Dr. Marriott was raised on a farm and showed hogs at the county fair, which she loved to do.  “Those are some of my best childhood memories!”. She loves her husband Collin, and her son Isaac. Watching her son and his friends play baseball and soccer are always the best parts of her day.
