November 20, 1984

Lisa Hope Schiller ’86, a junior, was killed in a car accident on her way to her field work assignment at the Harlem Valley Secure Center in Wingdale, NY. Described by her friends as “an enthusiastic person who was optimistic about everything,” she was a member of the Measure for Measure acappella group and, as a sophomore, had won the Wendy Breslau prize for “outstanding contribution to the community,” specifically for her work in bilingual education at the prison.

In February of 1986, the facility’s library was named in her honor, in light of her passion for and dedication to her work there.
