TMSA wishes Betsy Lovejoy a Farewell

TMSA founding member and consummate Montessorian Betsy Lovejoy was honored on April 27th, 2016 at Goji’s Bistro in Cary during her final TMSA dinner as acting head of TMSA.  Betsy will remain active in the Montessori community, but in the short term will enjoy travel and time with her beautiful grandchildren.  MSR HOS, Nancy Errichetti, presented Betsy a beautiful gift on behalf of the TMSA organization.   On Betsy’s last official day as head, her request was for all Montessori schools in the Triangle to join international peace efforts to create a global movement for peace.   More on Peace opportunities.
