With Philanthropy Week just days away, we’re excited to celebrate one of our Giving Day donors, Beth Newman, a Brebeuf Jesuit College Counselor and proud current parent. 

What is your role at Brebeuf, and what do you appreciate most about this role?

B: As a College Counselor at Brebeuf, I most appreciate having the opportunity to help students and their parents through the sometimes complicated college admissions process. I’m grateful to be able to help ease students’ transitions and have a positive impact during a formative time in their lives.

What motivates you to give back?

B: Brebeuf has been and continues to be a positive change agent in so many lives.  It has shaped and inspired young people to do good for others and have a positive impact on the world.  It has also meant a great deal to me personally as it has been my work community for years.

Why do you encourage others to give?

B: I encourage others to give back to Brebeuf because I can’t think of a better place in which to invest for the positive growth and development of young people in our society.
