Congratulations to MVS alum Nola Timmins ’20 and MVS teacher Jon Graetz! Nola recently earned a highly selective Lighthouse Guild scholarship, writing her application essay about her work with upper school math teacher Jon Graetz. Not only did Nola’s application land her a scholarship, but her description of Mr. Graetz’s class also resulted in him winning the Lighthouse Guild Teacher Recognition Award, a singular honor!
