Suzanne McDonough Betz!
Haverford Township Adult School wishes to extend its gratitude to Suzanne McDonough Betz. Suzanne is retiring after volunteering her time for 43 years as the administrator
and instructor for Social Skills for Developmentally Delayed Adults. Suzanne also spent 38 years on the Haverford Township Adult School Board.
The classes were first offered in the 1978 Haverford Township
Adult School Spring catalog and focused on a new group of adults never before included in the public classes. For the first time, developmentally disabled adults had a class to attend just for them. Called Social Development, the class included all sorts of activities including music, art appreciation, gardening, cooking, exercise, dance, travel, etc. The students were encouraged to speak up and share their ideas on nature, animals, and holidays. The local police visited, and fire companies brought their trucks to discuss fire safety. The class included many ability levels but everyone was included and respected.
The Gertrude Steward Foundation is very proud of the program and delighted to think back on all the lives that have
been touched over the years. Suzanne, HTAS wishes you a
happy retirement, and we thank you for your many years of
