Mary Larkin Quinn

Mary Larkin-Quinn was an \u201call-star\u201d academically and athletically. She \u201chit the books\u201d as successfully as she hit jump shots on the basketball court, or passed to teammates to set up goals on the soccer field. At Central, Mary played four years of varsity soccer and captained the girls squad as a senior. She was named First Team All State for two years and selected for the NH Lions Cup team. In addition, she competed in varsity basketball for four years and was captain for two seasons. She was selected to the Alhambra All Star team in her senior year. She was also the city champion in the javelin throw in her junior year of high school. A 1991 graduate of Stonehill College, Mary was captain of the women\u2019s soccer team for two years. She was named to the All New England team twice and to the New England Senior Select Team. In college, her 3.75 GPA earned her scholar-athlete designation for three years and membership in the Ames Society, an academic honors organization. Later, she earned a Master\u2019s degree in Learning and Language Disabilities from the former Notre Dame College in Manchester and was co-valedictorian of her class. In the past, Mary was a Special Olympics coach and assistant coach of the girls varsity soccer team at Central. Since 1993, she has been a member of the faculty at Webster School in Manchester where she has taught both third and fourth grades.
