Beverly is currently a member of the Rotary Club of Dixie Sunrise and lives in St George Utah. Bev retired from Westminster College in 2010, where she held the position of Director of the Career Resource Center. In this position, she worked closely with College Administrators, Faculty, Students, and the community to promote the College. The Career Resource Center mentored Westminster students as they applied for internships, graduate school, and professional positions after graduation. Bev’s roots are in Salt Lake City, where she completed her undergraduate degree from the University of Utah and Masters of Arts in Professional Communication from Westminster College.
She and her husband, Ed, have 3 children between them, Ryan, Brooke, and Colin, all living out of state. They also have 3 grandchildren and enjoy spending time with them whenever possible. Since retirement, Bev and Ed have done a lot of traveling and enjoy experiencing different cultures. They traveled to Cuba with the Hispano-Latinos Club in 2008 for a Rotary Humanitarian Trip to serve the Cuban People. While living in Grenada for 6 months, Bev became active in the Rotary Club of Grenada, assisting with their 14 Island District Conference in 2012. After returning to St. George, she proposed a partnership between the Dixie Sunrise and Grenada Rotary Clubs to establish a joint Rotary vision project to assess and treat the needs of the people of Granada. The Dixie Sunrise Club contributed $1,000 US toward this project. Bev has also traveled to Mexico several times with the Murray Rotary Club, and most recently served as Co-Chair of the 2015 District Fiesta/Conference in Puerto Peñasco in June. This was a unique and meaningful International Service experience for over 750 Rotarians and their families from Utah and elsewhere.
Bev became a Rotarian in 1998 when Westminster College asked her to represent the College as a Rotarian in the Sugar House area. After joining the club, she became more involved in service and facilitated a partnership between the College and District 5420 to host multiple Northern District Assemblies in addition to District Youth events and Youth Exchange training. Westminster was very supportive and embraced this opportunity which is still a strong bond between the District and the College.
Rotary leadership positions and humanitarian service include: District Conference/Fiesta Co-Chair, Puerto Peñasco Mexico, 2015; Assistant District Governor 2009-2012; Rotarian of the Year-District 5420, 2012; Chair, Polio Plus Torch Run 2010-2011; Chair, Sugar House Rotary 75th Anniversary Celebration; President, Rotary Club of Sugar House 2007-2008; and Club International Achievement Award 2008 for outstanding club projects.
