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.
Congratulations to Emre Adabag, Margaret Broyles, Andrew Cheng, James Clinton, Samantha Detor, Gunnar Evenstad, Ekemini Jones, Grace Medeiros, Sam Schoenecker, Dylan Vincent, and Niels Wu, who were named National Merit Semifinalists by the College Board.
Beth Gaffga returns to Breck as our new Middle School English Teacher.
