A farewell tea party was held by The Madeira School of McLean
Nelson after 12 1/2 years of service. Although she was
"only" the Health Center's administrative assistant, everyone knows
that admin assistants are the wizards that make organizations work.
Robin thanks everyone in the many offices she worked with for
their friendship and good company facing both hard deadlines and many
tough salad choices at lunch.
In case you don't know, The
Madeira School is a beautiful high school
on high bluffs overlooking the Potomac River. In most
the girls do the homework, but the boys dominate discussions, which
tends to dumb down classrooms. Madeira has solved this
its source, by eliminating the boys. To meet our girls, boys
just have to get into some great colleges, where they'll eventually
find most of our girls. The Madeira School accepts boarding
students and has a student body that is diverse across race, class and
many of the world's countries.
Both the Living Room in
Main and the CA (Chapel-Auditorium) look out over the Potomac River
valley with stunning views. When the school invited
all staff to join the Board of Directors for dinner 28Sept07, Autumn
in her last glories and I
snapped this view.
