Strong Minds. Kind Hearts.

In Memoriam: Elizabeth Holmes

The Friends Academy community is devastated by the sudden loss of our cherished colleague Liz Holmes, who worked as our Associate Director of Admissions for 12 years, greeting and welcoming prospective and accepted families into the Friends Academy community. 

Before being hired at Friends in 2009, Liz was a dedicated Friends parent and mom to Chris '03 and Russell '09. She volunteered hundreds of hours of her time in service to Friends, serving as Parent Council President during her final year before her last child graduated. Known for her gentle warmth and love for all things Friends Academy, Liz was one of the school's greatest cheerleaders and always celebrated every one's accomplishments with heartfelt affirmation.
