Mary Mulvihill Memorial Scholarship


In her 34 years of teaching first and second grade full-time at Riverdale and Riverdale Heights and another 12 years as a substitute in all the Pleasant Valley elementary schools, Mary Mulvihill’s greatest reward came when she was able to help struggling students learn to read.
