Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

Brenda Dautermann wins Bill Behling Prize

May 15, 2013 at 3:24 pm

Housekeeper Brenda Dautermann was awarded this year’s Bill Behling Prize. Dean of Students Christina Klawitter presented her with the award at the annual Staff Recognition Celebration and Breakfast held on Wednesday.

Dautermann, an employee of Beloit College since 2001, won in part for her ability to relate to people and to make them feel at home.

“Every student deserves respect no matter who they are,” says Dautermann. “I treat them all like they're my own children and how I’d want someone to treat my child. I consider the students to be the spice of life, and there are a lot of spices out there.”

Dautermann, whose daughter Valerie graduated on Sunday, is known for leaving baked goods or vegetables for students in their dorms and kitchens and inviting them over for holidays and home cooked meals.

Nominated by students, the Bill Behling Prize recognizes a college staff member—hourly or administrative—who demonstrates a level of care that goes above and beyond their job description. The award is named in honor of Bill Behling, otherwise known as “The Food Dude,” who directed Beloit’s campus food services for more than 20 years.
