JMS Teacher Receives Award at Duquesne University October 1, 2013
Jefferson Middle School 6th grade Social Studies teacher, Ashlee Mae Beckett, was selected for the Mind, Heart and Spirit Awards by the Young Alumni Council at Duquesne University. A 2005 graduate of Duquesne University, Ms. Beckett’s efforts to develop an International Club and International Night fundraiser at Jefferson Middle School to benefit two orphanages in Colombia and Haiti were among the reasons she was nominated for this award.
Each year a select number of Duquesne alumni who exemplify the Mission of the University in their daily lives are recognized through the Mind, Heart and Spirit Awards. These achievements are not only accomplished through career successes but also through community service and service to others. According to their website, The Young Alumni Council honors distinguished young alumni who continue to live their lives according the mission of Duquesne University. Ms. Beckett will be honored at a reception at Duquesne University on Saturday, November 2, 2013.
