Sarah DeMuth, a fifth-grader in Alyson Carver’s class at Salem Avenue Elementary School, has been chosen to sing the national anthem at the Hagerstown Suns home game on July 22, which is the day before Sarah’s 11th birthday.
Sarah’s father, Eric DeMuth, took her to audition in March at Valley Mall. Sarah’s mother, Amy DeMuth, said this will be Sarah’s first time singing in public, and her family as well as many members of Sarah’s church will be at the Suns game to cheer her on.
