Outstanding Graduate: Sara Weidmayer

Sara Weidmayer is another example of outstanding graduates Ferris State University is sending out into the real world.

Weidmayer is a wife and a mother who has successfully worked her way through the Michigan College of Optometry.

Here is an excerpt from a story originally published in the Points of Pride newsletter and later featured again on the News Services Web site:

As a mother, wife and student in the Michigan College of Optometry, Sara Weidmayer of Jackson performed an astonishing balancing act in her pursuit to become a doctor of Optometry.

Now, she swells with pride when reflecting on her time at Ferris and being able to remain committed to being a loving mom and dedicated wife to her husband, Nick, and son, Caleb.

“Ferris is a great university, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a student there and in the Michigan College of Optometry,” she says.

Earning her first degree from Ferris in 2007, a Bachelor of Science in Vision Science, Weidmayer will spend the next year completing an Ocular Disease residency at the Battle Creek VA Medical Center.

As she prepares to begin the next chapter in her life, Weidmayer feels prepared as she moves on to her residency.

“I’m proud to be a Ferris alumnae and hope to stay connected to FSU and MCO in the future.”
