Transplant ‘didn’t take’ so supporters launch search for new donor

Transplant ‘didn’t take’ so supporters launch
search for new donor

[Editor’s note: Last week, we published a letter from Ln Alessi about her daughter, Vincenza, a 2012 Cooperstown Central School graduate who received a bone marrow transplant. This is an update to that letter.]

“Scary news today, the transplant didn’t take,” Ln Allesi posted on Facebook last week. “We are praying for strength and wisdom.”

With that, Cooperstown Central teachers Jennifer Pindar and Rebecca Sciallo jumped into action to help Vincenza find a matching donor.

After COVID delay, Cooperstown teacher plans overseas trip for 2022

After COVID delay, Cooperstown
teacher plans overseas trip for 2022

By PATRICK DEWEY • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

Cooperstown Central School students gather for a group picture in front of Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna during a 2016 overseas trip with history teacher Jennifer Pindar.

For more than 15 years Cooperstown High School history teacher Jennifer Pindar has loved leading student groups on educational trips abroad, a tradition she will continue after the coronavirus pandemic canceled last year’s trip.

In 2022, Pindar will lead a student trip to London, Belgium and Amsterdam. The destinations were agreed on in consultation with educational travel company World Strides. Along with Pindar, students will be accompanied by tour guides from World Strides and parents and teachers who agree to chaperone. The school is not involved in this trip.

The itinerary includes Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and other attractions. Students will also take excursions around Brussels and Bruges in Belgium. In Amsterdam, highlights will include visits to the Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum.
