  • Dianne Benson Davis: Conservationist/Author - Burncoat High School

    In her words, Dianne Benson Davis observed, “The education I received from the Worcester Public Schools provided support, guidance and inspiration that continues to serve me to this day. At Tatnuck Elementary School, Miss Marjorie Smith, an Audubon instructor, was invited to our 5th grade class. She introduced me to the world of nature. The librarian at Chandler Junior High showed me the book, Summer of the Falcon, which heightened my interest in falconry and birds of prey. My guidance counselor, Mr. Jeauno, made me aware of the agricultural program, studying animal and plant sciences, at Burncoat Senior High which was not my quadrant’s school. I was the only girl in the program. Burncoat provided me with a work study opportunity by earning credit at the Worcester Science Center as an animal caretaker and volunteer in a newly created Junior Naturalist program. After high school, the Science Center hired me as a zookeeper.”
