Mary Lynn is a long term employee of Pressley Ridge who has worn many hats throughout her career. Along with carrying out her daily responsibilities professionally, Mary Lynn has many diverse strengths and interests and has perfected the art of networking in her real life to benefit Pressley students. Knowing that "communities make a difference" Mary Lynn established a relationship with students in the Quaker Valley Service Learning Center that has yielded opportunities for our students and theirs for over 10 years. The students have been pen pals, celebrated "read Across America" together, and had internship opportunities. Most recently the Entrepreneur class at Quaker Valley donated enough money to buy presents for 30 of the agency angels on our holiday tree. Given the tough economy last year we never would have been able to ensure all the families' needs were met without their generosity. As a result of Mary Lynn's hard work, Pressley Ridge was able to nominate the Quaker Valley students for an entrepreneurship award given by the PA Fundraising Professionals last year. This relationship has been a win-win for everyone involved.

Day to day in the program, Mary Lynn provides a competent and compassionate example for younger staff. She takes her role as a mentor seriously. She's always willing to share her expertise in Skillstreaming and Progress Monitoring through trainings and in-services. Mary Lynn is often one of the first staff persons that new students meet at the Dayschool and she does her best to make kids feel welcome and valued and begins the process of forming a therapeutic alliance with each of them. At the core of it all, Mary Lynn is a teacher at heart. She believes that "competence make a difference" and goes to great lengths to help students achieve academic milestones through her efforts with tutoring and PSSA preparation and testing.

Pressley Ridge has long benefitted from Mary Lynn's dedication and unlimited energy and it is about time we put it into words for others to appreciate her the way we do.
