Letters to the Editor

October 12, 2013

I’d like to thank President Sally Klessens, Secretary Carolyn Wrenn Shannon, and Asst. Secretary Lisa McGoff Collins and the entire Old Schoolgirls Association for awarding me a Scholarship at the Annual Dinner held on September 15, 2013. Since I was away at school,my grandmother, Lois Lynch O’Connell, and my Dad, Ed O’Connell, accepted on my behalf. I understand there was an overflow crowd at the Knights of Columbus, and that it was a wonderful event!

The scholarship money has already been put to good use to buy books and supplies for the current semester. I appreciate your generosity, and will try to live up to the spirit of the Charlestown Schoolgirl organization both academically and in my volunteer activities as I continue my college career at Syracuse University.


Amanda Kate O’Connell
