Fundraising and Scholarship Committee
I joined BCLL because I believe in the transformative power of education! I grew up in a university city and it was fairly easy for everyone to go the college. Today, going to college is important, but often not affordable. BCLL helps that possible!
My parents were first generation Americans and going to college was not available to their parents. I saw first hand how going to the university changed their lives! My dad became a newspaper publisher and my mother had a non traditional degree for a woman in the 1940’ies, labor economics! I studied to be a teacher and worked with non traditional students, creating mentorship programs, leadership programs for girls, and special counseling programs designed to help students envision college and a career.
It’s a great joy to help students succeed in college!
