Investing in USM is the Best Investment We Can Make in Our Children

Sarah Olson Zimmermann ’92 is happy to be part of a Milwaukee family with ties going back four generations to USM and its predecessor schools. But what really thrills her are all the new legacies just beginning at the School.

“New families bring energy and excitement,” she says. “They are writing the next great chapter in the history of USM.”

Sarah and her husband Steve, a native of Los Angeles, relocated to Milwaukee from San Francisco in 2007. They did so, in part, because they wanted their children to attend USM.

As an alumna herself, Sarah was confident that USM was the right fit for their boys. Joe is in the class of 2022, and his brother Nate is in the class of 2025.

In addition to its academic excellence, Sarah and Steve were drawn to USM’s welcoming and inclusive spirit. “Kids find their place early here, and parents become volunteers and fast friends,” she says. “The result is a highly engaged school community with a strong sense of ownership in USM.”

As a Trustee, Sarah is proud that USM has a solid financial foundation and stewards its resources well. “We feel good about supporting the School in any way we can with our resources and volunteer time.”

“Our children benefit every day from the generosity of past USM supporters,” Sarah says. She and Steve are excited to be part of a new generation of USM donors. “Investing in USM is the best investment we can make in our children.”
