Melissa Moss '72

I don't know the details, but it would appear that Melissa Moss '72 headed to the Other Coast and met with considerable success, the most recent of which was appointment by President Obama to an arts commission.  Classmate Ron Bennett remembers Melissa from Montezuma Elementary, Horace Mann and Crawford.  He shares links to four different articles on Melissa.  I will try to put them in reverse chronological order.   The White House/President Barack Obama (September 8, 2011)
