Marilyn Misa Ferguson, the 2000-2001 Recipient of the Monsignor Gerald Lawrence Lewis Award for Excellence in Teaching, passed away on August 6, 2019.
Prior to marrying her high school sweetheart, Bob, in 2010, Mrs. Misa Ferguson taught Third Grade for 23 years at St. Thomas More Catholic School, Chapel Hill. In a note for the Lewis Award 25th Anniversary she wrote that
“my years at St. Thomas More were the most rewarding years of my life and receiving the Lewis Award was the proudest moment of my teaching career. I surely do miss STM and all of the wonderful children with whom I came in contact during all those years.”
At the time of her death she and her husband lived in the Pacific Northwest.
