FMW has had two large celebrations this year. The First Day School prepared a meal to raise funds for scholarships on Marin Luther King, Jr. weekend. The Personal Aid Committee and the Mary Jane Simpson Scholarship Committees joined to host the first annual Barbara Nnoka memorial luncheon. Barbara worked for decades on raising money for and administering the MJS scholarships. The luncheon raised over $2000 — enough for a fifth first-year scholarship for a DC public school graduate.
