Prill went back to college in her 30s, graduated from Georgetown University at 38, began teaching at a community college at 40 and wrote the book, Defying Gravity, at 50. The book highlights other women who are "late bloomers" and “accomplished incredible things at an age when most people are beginning to wind down.”
Perhaps Prill's extraordinary and exhuberant presence in our Connecticut community has to do with her philosophy of life.
"I do a bold thing every day. Every day I try to do something that scares me a little bit. I’ve done it since 2000 and that is how I’ve gotten where I’ve gotten."
One of Prill's great delights is to teach at Mercy Center, in Bridgeport, CT. She posted this comment and picture on Facebook a week ago..
