A student at Pine Point for nine years, and a trustee during the late 1990s, Candy’s devotion to the School burned brightly from the moment she arrived as a student in the fall of 1964. Over the years, in countless emails, notes, and calls to Pine Point, she always asked: “How’s my school doing?”
As it relates to Pine Point, Candy particularly cherished the relationships she enjoyed with her classmates that had bound them together, in some cases, for more than 50 years. Whenever she mentioned the group, she never failed to describe them as “the great Class of 1973.” And why not? After all these years, the Class of 1973 remains the largest graduating class in the School's history.
All who were lucky enough to know Candy knew her to be an extraordinary woman in all regards—wife, mother, sister, aunt, student, teacher, colleague, friend, and volunteer. (We’ve shared a few photos that Candy posted on her CaringBridge website. An extended article on Candy will appear in the fall issue of ViewPoints.)
Ever passionate about education, Candy was a strong proponent of endowment and made it a priority with her own philanthropy. Over a decade ago, she started an endowment fund at Pine Point named in honor of her class.
Those who wish to honor this marvelous individual can do so by making an online gift to The Class of 1973 Fund. Others may wish to make a gift by check. All checks should be made out to Pine Point School and on the memo line please write The Class of 1973 Fund.
