The Women’s Club of White Plains was the venue for a heart-warming event: celebrating the principal of The Academy of Our Lady of Good Counsel Elementary School, Mrs. Pam Matott. School families and parishioners of Holy Name of Jesus Church in Valhalla came together at the parish’s annual mid-winter ball on January 28th to honor Mrs. Matott – her enthusiastic energy guided the students, faculty and parents through the move from its White Plains location to the school’s new home. She seamlessly integrated the Pre-K through 8 school into the life of the parish, and provided continuity for the small school community. Pam never missed an opportunity to foster the spirit of compassion which is so much a part of the mission of the Sisters of the Divine Compassion. The leadership of Pam Matott will long continue through the ripple effect of the goodness of the children, faculty and parents whose lives she has touched… truly a reason to celebrate!
