On September 24, the board of Conservatory Lab raised a glass to toast its founding trustee Kitty Pell. For 20 years, Kitty has inspired friends, found resources, and tirelessly championed Conservatory Lab as a school for the nation.
The festivities included a serenade from a trio of eighth-grade students and readings of proclamations in recognition of Kitty's service from both Governor Baker and Mayor Martin J. Walsh. Mayor Walsh declared September 24 to be Kitty Pell Day.
Kitty will continue to serve on the board of the Conservatory Lab Foundation and was newly elected as a Trustee Emerita by the Charter School.
We are incredibly proud to honor Kitty, our visionary leader and beloved founder of Conservatory Lab, and thrilled that there is a day dedicated to celebrate how special she is.
