Shirley Donoghue was an incredible educator and an extremely talented artist. She and Jack Dalton changed the way I look at the world, and as I worked my way through undergraduate school, I continued to hear their voices. I was truly lucky to have had her as an instructor. Thanks Mrs. D..You were awesome!

Mrs. taught me to see and to draw. You taught me to think outside the box and express myself through art. Thank you for all your insights and patience! ---Annette Shurtliff Trunnell (class of 1974)

Mrs. Donoghue, your classes helped me through some stressful times at HS.  I felt so comfortable applying art, and trying new techniques.  Your support helped me to realize I could draw something other than horses, and had something else in my life.  I still have two of my watercolors that I did in your class, with your encouragement.  Your kindness and support of students was incredable, and will be very missed,  But your legacy lives on in us, and guess what?  I'm still drawing!
