I am so saddened to see that Claudia has passed. She was a remarkable teacher to the little ones in her care and a great director for the staff at the CC Center. I was privileged to be her advisor during her time at NOC and was so proud of her and her accomplishments. She always had a smile that could brighten your day. She will be very missed. My condolences to the family and to her friends.
