Meet Pietzner Legacy Society Chairs:
Bill and Betsy Herman brought their daughter Sarah Jane to Camphill Special in 1976. The Hermans now have been staunch and generous supporters of our School for over thirty years and as chairs of The Pietzner Legacy Society have included Camphill Special School in their estate plans.
Betsy shares this story that shows why our planned giving society honors Carlo and Ursel Pietzner:
While on a walk up the hill at Beaver Run, Ursel Pietzner mentioned to my husband that if we could no longer afford to pay tuition (then very modest), Sarah would nonetheless continue to be cared for and educated at Beaver Run. For him, that single experience opened up a lifetime of active Board membership (in the School, the [Camphill] Foundation, and the Camphill Association, all dedicated to enabling and perpetuating the selfless attitude so simply and matter-of-factly stated by Ursel so many years ago.
