A Community Project to honour women who have enriched our lives

The Ban Righ Centre supports mature women who are starting or returning to education at Queen’s University. In taking this significant step, these women found role models, advocates and inspiration in other women. Then, as they engage in their studies and in their activities beyond Queen’s with friends, family, peers and colleagues, these students effect continual and positive change, extending the reach of their mentors and the Ban Righ Centre. Through “Who Is She?” we honour women who make a difference.

SHE IS my sister, Molly McIntyre! It is my pleasure and privilege to pay tribute to Molly, who retired last year after 35 years of teaching. She was the quintessential teacher who embodied everything ‘good’ about education. As a passionate classroom teacher, coach, and mentor to her students (and to her sisters), Molly believed in everyone’s potential. She has supported me with her quiet leadership style for as long as I can remember. At her retirement party, I was humbled by the many awards she has received over the years, including Educator of the Year within her Board of Education. Tributes had come flooding in from former students and had been compiled into a book. I see no better way of supporting the mandate of the Ban Righ Foundation than by honouring Molly – a superior, lifelong educator.
