Councilwoman Copp

Chairwoman Sarah Copp

I will say, ”there is no place like home”. West Milton has been my home since I was born in December of 1979. I was raised in West Milton and lived on Hamilton St. with my parents Mark and Cheryl Herkins and sister Jessica.

I attended Milton-Union Schools starting in Kindergarten with Mrs. Pinkerton and graduated with my class in 1998. Throughout school I was involved in soccer, volleyball, basketball, track, student council and various clubs. Following high school I attended Wright State University and earned my bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. Shortly after graduating in 2003 I married my high school sweet heart David Copp.

I taught at Newton Schools as a first and third grade teacher for three and a half years and coached volleyball and track. During this time, I went back to school at Walden University and earned my Masters in Reading and Literacy. My husband and I decided to start a family so I chose to put my career on hold and become a stay at home mom. We have three children now ages seven, six and four. While being a stay at mom I also tutor elementary aged students in reading and math. I am very involved with our church Community Grace (Chicken Church) in West Milton. I serve in our children’s ministry, which includes Awanas and our children’s church.

I am proud of our community and I want it to continue to improve and develop while maintaining the safe, hometown feeling that we already have. I have seen many improvements throughout our town in the past five years, which is very encouraging to know that “the people” care. I am also one of those people.
