“She was very good at fundraising, she was excellent at programming, she was a strategic thinker, she had an extraordinary staff, and outstanding staff," said Margaret Deutsch, chair of the Mahaiwe’s board. "She was a great, great leader.”

Jolly will stay on as a consultant in 2020 to help in the search for her replacement.
