Named Gift Honorees 2018

Beaver Valley Branch

  • Debi Breit-Adams
  • Rose Homish


  • Pat Markowski: All branch members see the results of Pat Markowski’s work but do not necessarily know she does it as much of her work is “behind the scenes.” She supports meetings and many committees in addition to her work as Communications Chair.  The branch can thank Pat for writing new member biographies, sending press releases, creating a member survey, collating a member career booklet, serving on the 95th celebration committee and attending the state convention.
  • Lillian Wong: In her work as Scholarship Chair Lillian Wong is the contact between scholarship applicants and the committee. Additionally, she advertises the scholarship, gathers all applications and prepares packets for the committee, contacts applicants, schedules interviews and leads the committee in the selection process.  She also helps to plan the scholarship component of the annual branch banquet and assures attendance of the recipients.
