About the Speaker
After growing up in generational migrant-labor poverty, leaving school at 15 to get married, having two children, and continuing to cope with poverty while being essentially homeless her entire life, Dr. Donna Beegle found herself at 25 with no husband, little education, and limited job skills. Then, in 10 short years, she went from GED to a Doctorate in Educational Leadership.
Since then, she has dedicated her life to educating others on the realities of poverty and to encouraging people to come together to help those in need. We hope Dr. Beegle’s story will inspire you to join the fight against poverty in our community.
