It is with a sad heart that we announce the passing of one of our greatest supporters. Mary Pat Philbin, the wife of Philip E. Philbin for whom our program is named, passed away on Monday, April
Mary Pat Philbin
10, 2017. Mary Pat and her family have maintained a connection with us for over 20 years by awarding one of our High School Equivalency graduates with a scholarship and sitting as active members of our advisory board. Mary Pat came to every graduation ceremony and always had the kindest words and appreciation for the program. She was our greatest cheerleader and she will be missed. The Philbin Family has requested that memorial donations be made to the Philip E. Philbin Clinton Adult Learning Center. Donations can be mailed directly to us at 150 School Street, Clinton, MA 01510. We will be sure to share your generosity with the family.
