Celebrating the Retirement of MSDA Head of School Sister Fran Sullivan, OP '60

Oh, what a night! This week, MSDA alumnae and alumnae parents, current parents and students, staff, faculty, and friends joined together in celebration of Sister Fran.

The sold-out event took over the entire outdoor area of Essex Fells Country Club. With everything from official proclamations to private moments of thanks, the evening was a joyous community farewell to a leader of great impact and importance.
