Sadly, we mourn the loss of our friend and colleague, Allison Henderson, who passed away recently. She was an extraordinary example of courage and dignity while facing her illness, and she will be missed by all who knew her.
We can think of no better way to honor Allison’s memory than by raising funds to promote the education and advancement of women.
• Montgomery College students in STEM fields, through the Montgomery County Commission for Women Scholarship
• Female participants with financial need, through Leadership Montgomery tuition assistance program
Before her passing, she expressed her gratitude for a fulfilling and rewarding life. She treasured so much in life from working, to traveling, to serving her community. But most of all, she treasured you - her colleagues, friends, and loved ones. She thanked all of you for the support, understanding, kindness, and affection that you gave to her throughout her life. It was you who were with her through the difficult times as well as the good times. Her thoughts were of you. She asked that when you remember her to always think of the happiest times that you shared with her. That’s what brought joy to her life.
We need your help.
