A recent high point in her career was the Daytime Emmy nomination for WGBH’s Design Squad, in which high school contestants tackle engineering challenges for an actual client. “She’s very much one of those people who would be very cynical about pomp and circumstance, but when she was the focus of it, she loved it. She was really excited.”
