Pierce presented Aylett Alumna Award
Diane Longest Pierce, Class of 1982, was named the Aylett Country Day School (ACDS) Distinguished Alumna for 2013.
Pierce has been a strong supporter and advocate for ACDS for many years. As an alum, she supported the mission of the school through special gifts and functions. Now, as a parent of three Aylett students, her continued support is in overdrive.
She has served as an alumni class agent and as a parent class captain making calls to help raise annual funds for the school for many years. She also works diligently with the league serving as committee chairperson for various parts of the Aylett Country Fair and the school’s spring event each year.
Most recently, Pierce, along with three other co-chairpersons, has organized, planned, implemented and successfully raised over $100,000-plus for the school through the Urbanna Oyster Festival.
“Her calm, organized leadership is a true reflection of her family and their history and dedication to ACDS,” said a school official.
