May 31, 2017 is #BevsDay
Raised: $16,105 Goal: $15,000
Beverly Williams taught at Notre Dame from 1999 until her untimely passing in 2009. She was loved by faculty and staff, parents, and students for her energy, compassion, generosity, and infectious sense of humor. Bev taught Sociology, Psychology, and AP Psychology.
Bev’s teaching, however, extended far beyond the content of her subject. She was dedicated to helping those in need in the school community and surrounding area. Each Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, Bev’s classes would sponsor families in need and provide much needed support during the holidays. She also made sure every student in her care was well fed!*
Bev’s generosity also included a strong commitment to scholarships and financial aid for Notre Dame families. She made annual donations and dedicated part of every check to helping families afford our school. Almost immediately after her passing in 2009, friends, family, and former students raised more than $10,000 in her name to support families as they pursue a Notre Dame education. Everyone who knew Bev recognized her passion for our school and the doors it can open for students. #BevsDay honors Bev and hopes to open doors for students by helping their families with tuition assistance.
In honor of Bev and her generous spirit, Notre Dame and the Williams family ask you to participate in our second #BevsDay. The donations to #BevsDay support Mary’s Way within The Notre Dame Fund — the “way” for financial aid and scholarships at Notre Dame. Help us honor Bev by:
- Making a gift online at www.ndpma.org/BevsDay
- Sharing the news of your gift on social media with #BevsDay #MarysWay
- Encourage others to give by tagging your friends and family
Laugh, love, and live like Bev! *
*In honor of Bev and #BevsDay, every student and staff member will get a complimentary ice cream to celebrate the last day of classes before final exams.
Please help us make #BevsDay a success by making a gift.
