With sorrow, we announce that our board member Lindy Hess passed away recently at the age of 63. For many years, she ran the Columbia Publishing Course and its predecessor, the Radcliffe Publishing Course. A profile in the Boston Globe is here. Lindy joined CSV’s board of directors in 2000, and during her tenure, she introduced many people to our work. Lindy was always a connector of people. She brought us new volunteers, board members, and supporters, including caring citizens who had never before set foot in the public schools in Cambridge. We will miss Lindy’s humor, good advice, and her dedication to the needs of students in the public schools.
