Thanks to the generous support of MaryJane (MJ) Kirkpatrick, her daughter Kim Pennente, sister-in-law Lisa Schiel of the Schiel Family Foundation, and the Stanley Smith Horticultural Trust, a new “Ambler Arboretum Accessible Pathway” has been developed to ensure that everyone can enjoy the Temple University Ambler campus gardens the way they were intended.
The evolution of Temple University Ambler started with what was then a revolutionary concept — providing educational opportunities for women at a time when few were available. More than 100 years later, the Ambler Campus continues to play a unique role within Temple University.
On Saturday, September 16, the Ambler Campus will host Temple Ambler in Bloom, formerly Rhapsody in Bloom, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. in the Louise Bush-Brown Formal Perennial Garden. The name may have changed, but the mission remains the same.
Since graduating, many of ProRanger Philadelphia alumni have returned to support the program and act as mentors for current Temple students. Seven ProRanger alumni took part in leadership camp this year.

She just took the scenic route to get there.
