Lanie Kruszewski, a MLWGS alumna and assistant field hockey coach who was killed in a bike accident this summer, was remembered at a memorial service at MLWGS in August. At that time, her family asked that in lieu of flowers people make donations to several charities including MLWGS. Over $5,000 has come in so far from memorial donations.
The Foundation is working with the Kruszewski family to match what the school needs in conjunction with how the family wants the money to be used. Currently plans include adding a bike rack near the field with a plaque honoring Lanie, buying field hockey and other sports equipment, and since Lanie was an avid cook, refurbishing the pantry used for the senior cooking seminar.
