Dr. Dorothy Adams Peck fell in love with helping others at a young age.
She taught at Roosevelet, then Palm Beach High School, now Dreyfoos School of the Arts. She later became Area School District Superintendent and began doing missionary work in Africa after retirement.
Her son shared her passion for education and foreign languages. He was proficient in eight languages and a professor of Romance Languages at U.C.L.A. When he passed away, Dorothy created a scholarship fund to honor his memory and continue his legacy of educating future generations. She is an honored member of our Legacy Society.
