Ann Parsons ’71 came back to Harley in 2014-2017 to aid a student through her work with BOCES. The student had suffered from an illness that left him unable to read, write, or speak. They found, however, that he was able to read dice. Ann, being visually impaired, taught him braille so he was able to continue with his education.
Ann was also the daughter of Jane Parsons, a member of Harley’s lower school faculty from 1956-1985 and a member of the drama department faculty from 1985-1995.
Ann’s class gathered earlier this summer to celebrate their 50th Reunion. She was able to attend and have been told she “cherished the time” with her classmates!
