In doing a little search while writing about the scholarship needs at the Muriel Snowden High School in Boston, I found out Dr. Coulter is still the headmaster there, so I gave her a call. The school has evolved into the Muriel Snowden International School, and all students must complete four years of foreign language study in French, Japanese, Mandarin or Spanish. Coulter, who was eligible to retire a few years ago, said she stays because she loves it and because, “it’s still an evolving school, there’s still so much to do.” So what does the school need now? To enhance and apply their language studies, “the kids have started an ongoing community service project in a rural area of China where they volunteer to work for three weeks in the summer. It sure would be great to have more scholarship money to send more students there or other places around the world,” says Coulter.
One suggestion was to reconnect with three famous alumni from the school: Mark Wahlberg, Donnie Wahlberg, and Danny Woods, who have been generous to the school in the past. She’s trying to get back in touch through their agents, but if anyone has an in, please do tell!
