Clara Botkin worked in the cafeteria at Sahuaro High School for 22 years. Twenty-one of those years she served food to the faculty and staff. Each of Clara’s four children graduated from Sahuaro, and her son, Steve, has been a teacher and is currently a coach and the athletic director at Sahuaro.
Clara still attends many of the athletic events and fine art productions at the school. Clara greeted everyone with a smile and made everyone feel special. She loved working at Sahuaro and considered it her second home. The faculty cafeteria was always festive because of her special touch. Clara was and still is loved by everyone.
