Remembering an Olney teacher -- Gazette.Net


The St. Peter’s and Our Lady of Good Counsel High School communities are mourning the passing of Margaret “Peggy” Ghent, who died of cancer on Sept. 12.

The Ghent family has touched the lives of many local students. Peggy taught middle school science at St. Peter’s School, and her husband Steve is a teacher and coach at Good Counsel.

In her memory, the family has established the Peggy Ghent Memorial Scholarship Fund, which will be awarded to an incoming Good Counsel freshman student from St. Peter’s School who has a strong record of service to the elderly.

To contribute, send checks payable to the Margaret Ghent Memorial Scholarship fund to Our Lady of Good Counsel High School, 17301 Old Vic Blvd., Olney, MD 20832.
