Alumna Hawthorne quoted in ‘Simpsons’ story

Mary Helen “Mel” Hawthorne '72, First Selectman of Springfield, Vt., was quoted in a story about the premiere of “The Simpsons Movie.”

Her town was chosen to host the film premiere in a nation-wide poll, over several other communities named Springfield.

Hawthorne's position is essentially the town's chief administrative officer. While at HWS, she was president of William Smith Congress and since graduation, previously served as a class correspondent.
