The Third Andrew K. Dwyer Award Goes to Beth Schmidt

Congratulations to Beth Schmidt, who was named the winner of the third annual Andrew K. Dwyer Award at Dogg Day ’12. Beth was a schoolmate and dear friend of Andrew’s at Hotchkiss. In 2004 Beth ran in the NYC Marathon and raised over $20,000.00 for Andrew’s Foundation. Beth was honored for her involvement with AKDF and her work in founding Wishbone, a non-profit organization that was launched last year, designed to send low-income high school students to after school and summer enrichment programs. Beth was motivated to start Wishbone while teaching in South Central, Los Angeles. She ran in the LA Marathon to raise money to allow some of her students to attend summer programs in the fine arts, music, liberal arts, sciences, environment and athletics that without her help would not have been possible. Andrew’s Foundation helped Beth with some of the logics and continues to support Wishbone.

In December, Beth was recognized on the prestigious Forbes List for “30 under 30 in Education” for her work with Wishbone. We are ecstatic to congratulate Beth on these much deserved accomplishments.
