Making a Difference For Ana Hebra Flaster, supporting Rivier comes naturally.
A freelance writer, editor, and communications consultant, Ana is a member of the Board of Trustees and works to advance the University’s mission. She recalls starting to give back to her own alma mater as a first-generation college grad. “I gave small amounts at first and over the years, those amounts grew. Once I began giving, I gave every year. It felt like the right thing to do." Today, Ana and her husband proudly support the Rivier University Fund each year as well as capital initiatives, considering each donation an investment in the University’s proud future.
A Commitment to Generosity For Brad Kreick, making a difference is a family tradition.
Holding the belief that education is everything, Brad Kreick and his family are making a difference in the lives of adult learners and in the future of Rivier. Their generosity inspired and launched the Kreick Family Scholarship and Kreick Family Scholars program, expanding access to a Rivier education for the University's hardworking and dedicated adult learner population. "The decision to support Rivier's ongoing commitment to adult learners was a very personal one for our family. My mom, Carol Kreick '79/'84G earned her degree as an adult learner at Rivier, and the benefit of that experience had a profound positive impact on our lives," says Brad. He shares that his parents always believed that "education is everything" and their actions in support of that belief shaped every aspect of his life. Now a member of the University's Board of Trustees, Brad is working to advance the University and shape the future for a diverse student population.
