Celebrating the Life of Amy Wise

Amy Wise of Williston, Vermont, died on November 11, 2014. Amy touched the lives of more than 1,200 children, their families, her colleagues, and SWTA childcare providers. She was a remarkable advocate for young children and served as a VSA VT teaching-artist for 2 years.  Those of us who knew Amy and her excellent work decided to celebrate her life by purchasing four copies of the book Stopping by the Woods by Robert Frost with beautiful illustrations by Susan Jeffers.  In Amy’s memory, we donated copies to The Lund Center, The Williston Public Library, and Poker Hill School.
