Mellay Gardner Receives 20009 Harbison Award
The 2009 recipient of the Harbison Scholarship is Mellay Gardner of Salem, Ohio. She grew from a struggling nonreader to become a class valedictorian. Diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when she was three years old, she received high-dose chemotherapy from that time until age six. This treatment resulted in traumatic brain injury, which manifests itself in deficits in attention, processing speed, visualmotor skills, cognitive flexibility, working memory, and fine-motor coordination.

Society Office Changes Several Procedures

Society Cookbook - "Recipes for Touching Lives"
The P. Buckley Moss Society is preparing a unique cookbook featuring favorite recipes from members and friends nationwide. Our hardbound cookbook will contain beautiful Moss images in full color and is sure to become a collector's item. We have chosen "Recipes for Touching Lives" as the title for our cookbook. It will be more than just food recipes; it will also include anecdotes about how the Society, Pat, and Pat’s art have touched the lives of others. This content is what will make it unique, meant to be read, and different from all the other cookbooks out there.
