The Martha Cook Board of Governors announce the retirement of Marion Law effective August 2018. Marion joined the Martha Cook family in the fall of 1997. With over twenty years at Martha Cook, she is our longest serving Bulding Director. Marion has given so much to the residents, alumnae and visitors, and we will never be able to thank her for her tremendous contributions to the Martha Cook family.
