Florrie won the St. Gaudens Medal, which is awarded by NYC’s School Art League to the graduating high school senior who has completed an art program with excellence in drawing. She also won a scholarship for art and painting to Parson’s School of Design. Luckily for us, she still enjoys painting and shared some of her beautiful work for this article.

Florrie came to Chesterbrook because her son-in-law found it. She helps out at the gift shop on occasion.
