Mary has been having some incredible adventures, both in the US and abroad.  Here she visited Lisa Misakian ‘78 in Nairobi, Kenya.

Lisa Misakian ’78 brought Mary with her on a consulting assignment to lead a compensation workshop among Human Resources practitioners working for globally operating NGO’s throughout Africa.

Lisa writes:  “I brought Mary along with me on a consulting assignment to lead a compensation workshop among Human Resources practitioners working for globally operating NGO’s throughout Africa.  The workshop was part of InsideNGO’s Operations Week in Africa.  Almost all my students were women (we did have one young man in class), and I truly felt proud to share this part of Mount Holyoke’s education/missionary history with my students.  We took our class photo on Wednesday, February 26 on the grounds of Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya.  Mary is being held by one of my students in the front row, and that’s me on the left, just under the “K” in the “Kumbayah Hall” sign. The photo is currently on InsideNGO’s Facebook page about Operations Week, so many involved in strengthening the operations of globally operating NGO’s are seeing our Mary on this historic visit to Nairobi.”

Mary Lyon also joined Patrice McCarthy Kirshbaum ’78.  Together they visited the Reichstag in Berlin, Germany.
