Holly Mooney has been a National Center staff member for nine years. Anyone who called the NFB switchboard during the past five and a half years has undoubtedly heard her ceerful voice answering the phone. On January 3, 1999, she gave birth to her third daughter, Rebekah Noelle. Pictured here, Mrs. Mooney stands beside President Maurer, who smiles at Rebekah in his arms. Mrs. Mooney has decided that, with three little girls to take care of, it's time for her to stay home. We will miss her efficiency and pleasant voice, and we wish her and her family all the best.
