With mixed emotions — happy for them and sad for us — Dr. Jacobsen recognized both Lisa King and Cindy Coe for their combined 67 years of service to Mount Vernon. He referred to them as the Ultimate Transformers. Impacting hundreds of families and thousands of people over the years, both Lisa and Cindy have become part of the Mount Vernon fabric – Lisa as a Lower School teacher, and Cindy also a Lower School teacher, and for the last 30 years, the sweet face at the front desk. They are both retiring this June.
No one knows more about the impact these two have had over the years, than their colleagues.
“Celebrating each child’s inherent gifts, Lisa creates a close bond with students and their families.”
“Lisa King feeds me! She welcomes, shepherds and mentors all of us.”
“Lisa is a beautiful example of someone who is able to perfectly blend humor and love to all whom she encounters.”
“Cindy is the definition of class. She inspires us all to sit a little straighter, walk a little taller and to be the best we can be.”
“Cindy Coe is a beautiful person – inside and out. She is always quick to offer help and lend a hand.”
“Cindy is a warm, welcoming and calming presence to all who enter our doors.”
Leaving a legacy of style, humor, grace and impact, these two respected and admired ladies will be greatly missed. We wish both of them the very best of happiness and relaxation with their “other” families. How lucky we are that they became part of ours.
