Gloria, or "Glo," as she was known to many, was an active parishioner of Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration for more than 40 years. Among other activities she was a long time member of the altar guild, usher team and a regular reader at church services. 

Gloria joined Parish Day School as Head of School in 1980 and served the Parish Episcopal School community until 2009 when she retired. Under her leadership, she guided Parish from the "little church school on the corner" to the PreK – 12th grade independent school that we are so fond of today.

During the expansion of Parish and the addition of the Midway campus, Parish nearly tripled in size under Gloria's leadership. However, her desire in growing the School to become a competitive, educational institution for students in the Dallas area never overshadowed her priority for the School to remain true to its core of nurturing and teaching kids under the banner of Wisdom, Honor and Service. No matter the accomplishment, her wish for the School was always that we'd "still have the same culture and the same climate" as the Hillcrest campus where she dedicated her energy to its students and families for 21 years before expanding.

The Parish Gala was always an important event to Gloria as it brought our community together each year in celebration of our achievements, and helped to raise funds towards future endeavors at our school.  

This year we will honor Gloria at the Gala with a special tribute you won’t want to miss.
