All of us at Children’s Scholarship Fund were deeply saddened to learn of Peter M. Flanigan’s death earlier this week.
The list of charitable and reform-minded educational endeavors that were either started by Peter or lucky enough to have his association is a long one. And who knows how many children’s lives were changed by his tireless efforts? Perhaps he knows that number now.
Peter was one of a kind and will never be replaced. I am grateful to have known him and had a chance to learn from both his example and the clarity of thought he brought to any discussion.
Our sincere condolences go to Peter’s wife, his children and their families. His memory will live on in the lives of thousands of children who received a better education through his efforts.
