    By Natachi Onwuamaegbu ... "When the first man set foot on the moon, Kathryn Heafield was studying music right outside of Paris at Fontainebleau. She and her classmates were watching the moon landing in a large, echoey room on a black-and-white TV about the size of a computer screen. After the broadcast was over, her teacher, Nadia Boulanger, a leading teacher of musicians in the 20th century, raised a glass of champagne and asked her students to raise their glasses to the men that made it possible. “I said, ‘Wait a minute — my sister worked on the moon landing,’ ” said Heafield, a Seattle resident. “And [Boulanger] said oh no, women can’t do that. I said, well, my sister did.”...

  • A fond farewell

    A fond farewell

    With extraordinary gratitude and quite a bit of sadness, and after almost ten years as the Executive Director of this fantastic organization, I have decided to step down in early October... On a sunny and warm day in my 20s, I participated in my first PNA event: Garage Sale Day. As I happily wandered among sale booths and kids’ lemonade stands, I was overwhelmed with the kindness, the smiles, and the community I saw. It is seared in my memory as one of my favorite days ever and it still is my favorite PNA “holiday” each year! (For years, the couch we found graced our front porch.) I thought “working at PNA would be a dream job!” as its mission to build community resonated so deeply with me. ...
