Last week, Higher Achievement lost one of its most ardent supporters: Lucy Bunzl Mallan, who passed away at the age of 88. “Ms. Lucy” was a devoted board member and Ward 7 mentor for Higher Achievement for many years. Every week, Ms. Lucy brought her analytical mind, tireless energy, and boundless curiosity to her math mentoring sessions – and to the development of our math curricula and the governance of our organization. She also shared her passion for democracy and the Constitution to our scholars, serving as a guest speaker on the topic at Center for many years. Ms. Lucy’s passion, rigor, and generosity made Higher Achievement stronger, and we miss her greatly.
