Our sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Sarah Pitts, daughter of Lisa Pitts, and granddaughter of the late former Mississippians, Joe Lee and Betty Mitchell of Baltimore, Maryland. Sarah, an attorney who graduated from Trinity College with Honors in Biochemistry in 2007, attended the University of Pennsylvania School of Law, where she received numerous honors, and was admitted to the New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey bars. She was hit by a bus and killed while biking home in Brooklyn last Sunday. Sarah was Senior Assistant District Attorney in the Appeals Bureau. Constituents placed a mourning bunting and memorial in her honor upon entering 350 Jay Street and passing through the lobby. Sarah was 35 years old.
