Quote from teacher: "In my 30+ years of teaching, Ms. Logan Sander now resides as the ‘Best of All', the best of my achievers and favorite student," said Darlene Blakely, AP/Composition teacher. "She is one of the four principal chairs of the Toledo Youth Orchestra - and they make music comparable to the professionals! She created Southview's first ever Literature Club over the summer of 2013, spearheading and acting as editor of the club's first literary magazine of student writing. Logan's positive, upbeat and enchanting personality is a joy to be around. No arrogance! No sense of superiority, no unkindness - and this from our Valedictorian. She handles everything with grace and aplomb. Things just seem to come naturally to her. Logan is the first valedictorian who is math and science strong, but wants to go into the world of words - as an English major - Comparative yet!"
