Senior Advisor


Sadie Bograd is a senior advisor of the Kentucky Student Voice Team and formerly served as the Editor-In-Chief of the Student Voice Forum. She joined the team in middle school and has been deeply involved ever since.

Although she’s participated in most of the Team’s projects in one way or another, Sadie's work focused on improving equitable access to postsecondary education as the Postsecondary Projects Lead. As the Editor-in-Chief, she helped revitalize the Forum in order to elevate the stories of students who are among the least heard in Kentucky’s public school system. Sadie was also a Quantitative Lead on the Coping With COVID Student-to-Student Study.

Sadie has led presentations in Beckley, West Virginia; Austin, Texas; and more. She is also a student journalist whose work has appeared in The Washington Post, NBC THINK, and Teen Vogue, among others. She has been featured on Good Morning America and All Things Considered.

Beyond the Student Voice Team, Sadie served as the Student Board Representative for the Lexington League of Women Voters and as a member of their statewide communications team, the co-chair of the Community Outreach Committee for the Bluegrass Youth Sustainability Council, and a volunteer with the Migrant Education Program.

Sadie is currently in the Yale University class of 2025, where she is highly involved in community organizing and journalism on campus; she graduated from Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Lexington in 2021.
