For the past 95 years, no child has ever been denied an education at St. Rita School for the Deaf due to financial hardship. Stansfield has dedicated 38 years to that ministry — as a teacher, principal and director of special services. Now in retirement, she continues to be an ambassador for the school throughout the community. She created the Mary Ann Stansfield Scholarship Fund to provide skilled professionals, programs, materials, technology, tuition assistance and opportunities to develop programs that will help each individual student grow to his/her fullest potential socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically and spiritually.
