In Memoriam

We are sad to inform the membership that one of MAHPERD’s pioneers and true leaders has died. Mary “Betty” Arnold was Past President of MAHPERD in 1975 and a recipient of the MAHPERD Honor Award. Her leadership, kind heart and steadfast devotion and support of our organization will never be forgotten.


It is with great sadness that MAHPERD announces the loss of Past President (1988) Bill Considine. We remember Bill as a true gentleman and a wonderful advocate and educator for the allied professions. He was a dynamic leader for our association and one of the reasons why it flourishes today. Bill passed away on Friday, March 26, 2021. Our prayers and thoughts go out to his family and to Springfield College community.

Dr Pat McDiarmid
