07-02_simon_1For all of her 27 years at Milton, Debbie Simon has generously given books, texts, and scripts to students in the Speech program. Her expertise at identifying excellent material, acquiring it herself, and then donating it to students and to the School helped Speech team contestants develop skills and compete successfully. While the collection will remain in the Speech Team classroom—lining the walls—the Milton Academy library staff began the project of classifying and labeling each book so that all can be tracked through the library catalogue system. Inside the front cover of each book is a bookplate created to recognize Debbie’s gift to generations of speechies and it reads:

Milton Academy acknowledges this gift from
English and Performing Arts Faculty,
Beloved Speech Team coach, mentor and advisor
