We are thrilled to announce that Sarah Fuquay has been hired as the first executive director of Project Transformation Indiana!
As a lifelong United Methodist, Sarah Fuquay began laying the groundwork for Project Transformation Indiana on a volunteer basis while still a senior at Butler University in Indianapolis. She discovered her passions for inner-city ministry and social justice while serving summer internships with Project Transformation Tennessee in 2014 and 2015. During her second internship, when she worked as a site coordinator, Fuquay experienced a call to bring the program back to her hometown of Indianapolis. After returning to college, she began to reach out to area churches and Methodist leadership, raising seed money and assembling a launch team, hoping she could one day find a full time role in this new ministry.
“I am excited and humbled to be selected as the first executive director of PT Indiana,” Fuquay said. “I’m looking forward to being a catalyst to bring the community together in ways that haven’t happened before in Indiana. I’m also excited about connecting college students to so many kids who are in need, and I am hoping PT will help our interns find their own calling and purpose in life just as I did.”
Sarah is a graduate of Butler University with a bachelor’s degree in sociology with a concentration in social work, and she is now pursuing a certificate in nonprofit executive leadership from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).
