President’s Dinner honorees
Doug and Michelle Rose
Doug and Michelle Rose have a long history with Brebeuf Jesuit. Doug’s parents Irwin and Jill Rose were actively involved with the school during its earlier years, with Irwin serving as a trustee and receiving the President’s Medal in 1984. They both remain connected and engaged today. Doug graduated from Brebeuf Jesuit in 1976, and Doug and Michelle made the decision to send both of their daughters to Brebeuf. Sara graduated in 2014, attended Indiana University as a Founders Scholar majoring in French and Criminal Justice and minoring in Business. She is currently attending DePaul College of Law in Chicago. Emily graduated this past May, and began her undergraduate studies at Butler University this fall where she plans to major in Business Administration with a minor in Spanish.
As leaders in the Indianapolis community and supportive parents of two Brebeuf Jesuit alumni, Doug and Michelle have served in numerous leadership roles for Brebeuf Jesuit. Doug currently serves as a member on the Board of Trustees, co-chairs the Advancement Committee, and is a member of the Executive Committee. Michelle has been extremely active in leadership roles with the Brebeuf Jesuit Mothers Association where she has served as a Bistro Chair, Class Liaison, Spirit Committee member, and countless other volunteer positions that contribute to supporting student and faculty initiatives. Together, they are Magis Society members, have an endowed scholarship supporting students with financial need, supported the Kite Wellness Center and Leading the Way capital campaigns with leadership gifts, and actively support the annual needs and operations of the school. They have graciously opened their home to the Brebeuf Jesuit community to serve as hosts for various events and are exceptional ambassadors for the School.
Doug and Michelle have demonstrated a deep commitment to Jesuit education through role model worthy volunteer involvement in their community, children’s lives, and in support of the students, faculty and staff at Brebeuf Jesuit. In addition to volunteer efforts at Brebeuf, they live our motto of “Men and Women for Others” with their service and dedication to the community.
