BGCL Welcomes Elizabeth Suh as Assistant Director of Education

November 04, 2019

The Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence has appointed Elizabeth Suh as assistant director of education. In this role, she provides high school students with the tools and resources required for college, including counseling in financial aid applications, SAT/ACT preparation and college tours.

"Elizabeth's expertise will help hundreds of youths achieve their academic dreams of becoming the first in their family to attend college," said Karen Kravchuk, director of education at the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence. "We're so fortunate to have her as part of our club family."

Suh earned a master's degree in bilingual/multicultural education from Instituto Franklin in Madrid, Spain in 2017. She earned a bachelor's degree in environmental studies with a minor in studio art photography from Allegheny College in Meadville, Pa. in 2012.

Prior to joining the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence, Suh taught English, natural science and social science in Madrid. In addition, she was an academic coordinator at ASC English School in Boston.

Suh said it is gratifying to be in a position to provide such a wide spectrum of assistance to club youth members.

"In the same day, I might help a high school junior strategize about college while also acting as a mentor to our younger students," she said. "I see my role as providing whatever the kids need in that particular moment, which is really exciting to me."
