The Gail Supanich Scholarship is named in honor of Gail Supanich who died in 2011. Gail was an early member of Montessori Schools of Massachusetts, a past president and was highly involved until her death. One of her many initiatives was to ensure that educators interested in taking Montessori training could be supported by MSM.
Gail's life was dedicated to Montessori education. A teacher and later Head of School of Pioneer Valley Montessori School in Springfield, MA, upon her retirement she moved on to be closely involved in a public Montessori program at the Gerena School in Springfield. Gail also served on the Board of Directors of AMS as well as gave workshops at both national conferences and with the travelling symposiums.
