“On behalf of the members of the Senate of the 132nd General Assembly of Ohio, we are pleased to pay tribute to Sarah Morrison on being presented with a 2018 OhioDance Outstanding Contributions to the Advancement of the Dance Artform Award.
A nationally and internationally acclaimed choreographer, as respected author of several scientific publications, and the founder of MorrisonDance, you are deserving of recognition, for you have become a dynamic advocate for the arts community. You have approached dance with an innovative vision that has been nothing short of inspirational, and your performances have thoughtfully engaged audiences by embracing the disciplines of science, technology, and nature. You have enriched Northeast Ohio by serving as a dance instructor at Cuyahoga Community College and a Psychology instructor at Notre Dame College [and Baldwin Wallace University] and by developing dance programs for school-aged youth at The Center for Arts Inspired Learning. You have demonstrated utmost concern for a balanced society, and your unparalleled initiative is an example of the intuitiveness and contributions that encourage positive change in the world.
Your steadfast commitment has gained you the admiration and appreciation of many individuals and businesses that have collaborated with you over the years. We are proud of the exemplary work of dedicated Ohioans such as you, for you have not only assumed an important role in the community by responding to the needs of its citizens, but you have also made valuable strides in establishing the foundation of our state.
Thus with sincere satisfaction, we applaud you on your recent accolade and look with optimism to your continued promising future.
