Women in History--Lyn McNaught: Making a Difference
Bendezu, Mary Ann Welch
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v6 n2 p89-91 Apr 2008
This article profiles Lyn McNaught, who retired in 2004 after more than thirty-five years as a teacher and Director of the Horizons Student Enrichment Program. McNaught's legacy of community service remains with her successors and the benefactors who continue to support the growing Horizons educational programs in New Canaan, Connecticut, and around the United States. Horizons was originally designed as an all-day, summer, academic program for disadvantaged city children living in Fairfield County, but it has now expanded to year-round enrichment programs for children through the eighth grade, and a high school program that helps Horizons graduates as they prepare for college or vocational training. Even now, in what should be a quiet retirement, McNaught remains as committed and busy as ever. She has joined a classics book club, is taking an art course, and travels, but she still finds time to read to local Head Start children, head a local Woman's Club, sit on the Board of a local educational foundation, and do some consulting work with various non-profits in the area. She also sits on the National Horizons Board, which keeps her connected with Horizons.
