Her dedi- cation to an ever-expanding curriculum and improving resources; as well as her love of working with children, truly makes Shir Shalom's religious school shine. The school also benefits from a never-ending line of madrachim who vol- unteer each week.

Schilit said, "I am an ordinary person with inner fire who strives for goals that at one point have seemed almost impossible." Schilit, now a 2013 gradu- ate of Haverford College, ran track and field for Haverford for four years, being the only runner to win the 400m, 1000m and 1500m, all at the same competition.
