She taught at Hawleyville School in Newtown and at three Danbury Schools (Starrs Plain, Morris Street, and Broadview). She was known as a great teacher, touching thousands of lives, class by class, student by student. She retired in 1971.

On June 5, Libby Kasimer and Kay Santuro presented our 2013 scholarships at Newtown High School’s Awards Night. It was noted that these scholarships this year are awarded in remembrance of the Sandy Hook Elementary School staff who died in the line of duty on December 14, 2012. Newtown HIgh School students are the recipients this year.

The Mary Frances Edgett Scholarship of $1500 was awarded to Sheridan Marmo. She will be attending Albertus Magnus College in New Haven as a Secondary Education major.

The NFCRTA Memorial Scholarship of $1000 went to Alex Lampel. He will attend Ithaca College in New York to pursue a career in music education.

It is the generous donations of our members that make these annual awards possible.
