The Kitty Green and Hobart Jones Scholarship for Inquiry Teaching and Cooperative Learning honors the couple who inspired it and contributed generously to the fund that provides it. Green, who earned an MAT at Mary Baldwin in 2000 after a remarkable business career, considered her all-too-brief stint as a teacher the most rewarding experience in her life. She died of ovarian cancer in 2002.
