Freeburg's workday starts after school with study hall. He writes: "I spend most of my time acting as a mentor and positive influence on these kids' lives, many of whom come from broken homes where they may experience verbal or physical abuse and witness substance and alcohol use on a regular basis. The rest of my time is spent immersed in the community, attending school functions, and learning about the history and culture (including attending sweats and pow-wows) of the local Native peoples."

Boniface, Brooke

Brooke Boniface ’11 is Santa Clara's new class giving officer in University Relations. Brooke graduated magna cum laude from Santa Clara in just three years with a double major in Political Science and History. She was obviously an incredible student and has already supported our office’s efforts greatly through her student job in the call center, where she ranked No. 1 in credit card rates her first year and had an unbelievable 99 percent fulfillment rate during her second year. We also had the opportunity to feature her student story in an annual fund piece during her senior year, so several of you will recognize her face. In her “spare time”, she also served as Opinions Editor for The Santa Clara student newspaper. Following her undergraduate degree from Santa Clara, Brooke served in Teach for America for two years in Phoenix. Most recent, she was tremendously successful as an ad sales rep for Yelp.  We are incredibly happy that she is coming back home to Santa Clara to join our Reunion Fundraising team.
