Tuesday: Virtual Tea and Poetry with Ms. Linda Brown
Ms. Brown dedicated 34 extraordinary years to The Cathedral School before retiring in 2016. She began as an assistant teacher in the Lower School and then assumed the role of school assistant in the mid-1980s. She also served as an admission interviewer and interim 3rd Grade teacher. In 1987, she took over as Cathedral's receptionist. Her innate warmth and welcoming spirit is remembered fondly by countless community members as she was the first person who greeted guests at the front door.
In 2001, Ms. Brown was awarded the Z Award, our Cathedral School's highest honor, which is named for Steven B. Zaslofsky, who served as a teacher, coach, dean, and business manager at Cathedral from 1978 to 1986. Mr. Zaslofsky is best remembered for his good nature, good humor, and for completing any job tossed his way with skill, determination, and zest. It was in this spirit that the Z Award was founded, and Ms. Brown embodies that spirit fully! Her impact is very much still felt today, as she helped establish Cathedral's beloved Kwanzaa celebration.
Notably, her love of poetry greatly influenced her students' creativity, and therefore, Ms. Linda Brown hosted virtual Tea and Poetry on Tuesday, November 10 from 5pm-6pm
as a part of Cathedral History Week.
