Allison Goldstein was a great teacher at Butler. She will be dearly missed by all. E.O Wilson Biophilia will be holding a fundraiser in her honor. Information can be found below:

The E.O.Wilson Biophilia Center Honors Former Walton County Teacher and Friend.
Thursday, July 28th
9:00-2:00 pm
*normal admission rates apply

In honor of Allison Goldstein, the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center will be donating all public proceeds on Thursday, July 28th to her daughter's education fund.
Paul Arthur, Biophilia Director, describes Allison as having one of the sweetest, most infectious and recognized smiles. She was a beloved friend of the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center and a local 4th grade elementary school teacher. Her love of the longleaf pine ecosystem was strong and contagious. Her students quickly shared her passion for the environment. We considered Allison a part of the Bio-family since the first day we met her. She helped shape some of our programs and curriculum as well as volunteer in her spare time. She will be missed by all that she encountered. All funds collected on July 28th will go towards her daughter's education fund.
