“Mary French Yellow Rose Award”

2013 Mary French Awards Event Details
Leaders in education are frequently hard found and unsung. Mary French, who held the positions of Andover Selectperson and Director of Pupil Personnel, was truly such a leader, breaking ground in the delivery of special education and the inclusion of the whole child in service delivery. It is in her memory that, since 2002, the Andover Special Education Parents Advisory Council (SEPAC) has sponsored the Mary French Yellow Rose Award to recognize like leaders in special education.
As Director of Pupil Personnel, Mary French led a group of Andover teachers and parents on a field trip to visit the Glastonbury school system to observe programs designed to improve delivery of service to special needs children. Educators whose contributions provided improved programming, as well as a more inclusive environment for special education students were acknowledged for their work with a yellow rose that would “mysteriously” be found on their desk. Thus the yellow rose became a symbol of excellence and the seed for the Mary French Yellow Rose Award was planted.
