Amongst family, friends, Rashi faculty, staff, alumni and students, Kathy Cohen was honored for her outstanding work and years of service to the school. A longtime supporter of Rashi, Kathy served as president of the board of trustees from 2014-2017. Previously, she was clerk of the board, chair of the development committee, chair of the annual campaign and co-chair of Yachad, Rashi’s parent-teacher organization. One of the evening’s highlights included a touching speech by Kathy’s daughter Mayta who graduated from Rashi with the Class of 2015.

“We are thrilled to present Kathy Cohen with this meaningful award,” said Neal Levy, director of development at The Rashi School. “Kathy’s dedication, leadership, passion and love of Rashi is evident every single day. We feel very fortunate to have her as a leader.”

Kathy, her husband, Scott, and their three children, Sophie (Rashi ’13), Mayta (Rashi ’15) and Zev (Rashi ’17) are residents of Needham. Sophie attends Skidmore College and is a graduate of Gann Academy. Mayta is currently a junior at Gann Academy, and Zev is a sophomore at Gann Academy.

Dan Miller, a Rashi alumni parent, introduced Kathy perfectly. “Kathy is an exceptionally caring, warm and all-around nice person,” said Miller. “Her dedication to Rashi has clearly had a lasting and meaningful impact on the school.”
