Wilhelmina Martin Eaken ’64 Named 2023 Winner of Truth and Toil Award
Mina, who is also a past parent, worked as Brearley’s Alumnae Director from 1991 to 2014. During her tenure, Mina helped establish various committees of the Alumnae Association, expanded the reunion program into a weekend of activities for the community, helped further develop alum online communications, and created programs that offered networking and mentoring opportunities. Mina is a longstanding Class Agent, has served as Reunion Co-Chair three times since she retired and is a member of the Lois Kahn Wallace Award Committee. Mina’s impressive knowledge of all alums makes her an invaluable member of the Brearley community.
"Alums who make the community all the more close and strong with their time, energy, ideas and spirit, alums who inspire others in the community to do the same—these are the alums whom we seek to honor and thank every year going forward with this new award,” Megan Lui ’10, co-chair of the Truth and Toil Award Committee and Alumnae Association President explained. “As a culture carrier, as a leader who spearheaded the formation of many of our alum committees and as an alum who has been involved in the Brearley community in various capacities throughout the years, Mina is the true embodiment of the spirit of this award."
This autumn, Brearley will host a reception in Mina’s honor. Join us in congratulating Mina.
