Sally was a Girl Scout leader at Chester Park School from 1942 to 1946 and later served on the Girl Scout council as a director.

 

She was president of Chester Park PTA from 1944 to 1946, an elected member of the Duluth Board of Education, serving as its chairwoman of schools committee and as its representative on the Duluth Teachers' Retirement Board from 1953 to 1959. She was a delegate to the White House Conference on Education, president of the Duluth Council of Parent Teacher Associations from 1951 to 1953, executive board of East High PTA and Central High PTA, board member of Minnesota Congress of Parents and Teachers for eight years, serving on speakers bureau and as monthly newsletter editor.
