Mary has been a Meredith Lion for 10 years. For most of that time she was a fun Tail Twister, always thinking of interesting things to stump us wiht. She was also on the Scholarship Committee, going through all the applications. She helped wrangle the ducks for our Rubber Duckie Race. Every year she was in the water to catch the winners. We are going to miss her smile.
