Two UCF alumnae were honored at a special Salute to Everyday Heroes luncheon on March 19, 2015. Nancy Ellis, '07, and Sarah Goldman, '14, were among those who have made a difference in their Central Florida communities. Last year, both were featured on News 13's Everyday Heroes segment, which airs on Mondays.

Ellis, the director for the Center for Community Partnerships in the UCF College of Health and Public Affairs, helped to create The Hub, a center at the Evans Community School that includes after-school tutoring, a career center and a health clinic that will benefit the entire community.

Goldman, who has cerebral palsy, is proving people wrong, working as an advocate for the disabled. While she was still a student at UCF, she launched the Student Advocates Reaching for Awareness and Hope Project, also known as the S.A.R.A.H. Project, on Facebook, dedicated to educating people about disability rights.
