In this post we’ll introduce you to two new members of the Middlebury College staff who are working in College Advancement and LIS. Please join us as we welcome Betsy and Rebekah to campus!
Betsy Killorin joined College Advancement as the Leadership Gifts Associate in April. Prior to coming to the College Betsy worked for several years processing mortgages at Peoples United Bank. Betsy has a degree in Music Education as a Flute major and taught privately and in the ACSU schools. She is still active performing at local events and with the Champlain Philharmonic Orchestra. A 23 year resident of Weybridge, Betsy has three children; two in college and one who attends Middlebury Union High School. Betsy also enjoys culinary arts, reading, and obsessively following the Men’s Pro Tennis Tour.
Rebekah Irwin is a “new” member of the LIS team and serves as the Head of Collections and Digital Initiatives. Rebekah has been with the College since last August, however she has not yet been formally introduced via MiddPoints so we are catching up now. Before arriving at Middlebury last fall, she was a librarian at Yale University. Originally from Wisconsin, Rebekah feels quite at home among Addison County’s dairy farms and rolling landscape. Rebekah spends a lot of time thinking about libraries and books, as well as spending time with her husband and young daughters, bicycling, raising hens, and renovating their 1920s house.
