New Staff: Susan Cossette
Breck welcomes Susan Cossette, Breck's new Annual Giving Director, who joined the Advancement Team this summer. Ms. Cossette received B.A. and M.A. degrees in English from The University of Connecticut. She's relatively new to Minnesota, moving here from the East Coast two years ago.
We asked our new faculty/staff this question: "Why Breck?" Ms. Cossette shared that she's "... honored to serve the Breck community. The school has such a rich philanthropic history, and I look forward to using my talents to help create a truly extraordinary experience for our students and faculty."
Cossette is a published poet and a spoken word performer. In 2017, she was short-listed for a Pushcart Prize nomination — presented to the best of small-press publishing.
Juniors Elise P. and Jess B. share about their internship at Agape Child Development and Oasis Crisis Intervention Center (Agape/Oasis).
During Black History Month, we are featuring Black, African, and African American identifying members of the Breck School community for our Meet a Mustang interviews. This week the Meet a Mustang feature is Jaren Morton '21, who started at Breck in the fall of 2016.
A group of Breck Upper School students were recognized for their writing in the Minnesota Scholastic Arts & Writing Regional Awards. Students submitted poetry, critical and personal essays, flash fiction, and shorts stories. Congratulations to our outstanding writers!
