Sandy Albrecht Wurzburger '86
By Debra Mayers Hollander
Sandy Albrecht Wurzburger '86 is going places—literally. A world traveler, Sandy has visited every continent except Antarctica; she resided in Argentina for three years; and, despite a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis 14 years ago, she hiked to the top of Machu Picchu in Peru!
"My lifelong dream was to hike Machu Picchu," Sandy explains. "Together with my husband, John, and my daughter, Brooke (now age 12), we made it to the top in 2002. I enjoy seeing places all over the world and discovering new things. I don't let MS get in the way," enthuses the petite 42-year-old.
Sandy speaks fluent Spanish, which she perfected while living in Buenos Aires for three years as part of her husband's position with Avery Dennison. While overseas, she served as president of the Buenos Aires International Newcomers Group. Now living in Russell, Ohio, Sandy continues her active volunteerism with the Chagrin Valley Women's League and the National MS Society.
"I owe a lot to Hathaway Brown and my education. HB definitely makes you know that you can do or be anything you want. You can make a difference," Sandy reflects.
Hathaway Brown's high aspirations for girls are one reason that Sandy decided to support HB by including the school in her will. "I encourage others to do the same. That's how a school stays strong—with the backing of alumni to show its importance," she explains.
