Rebecca (Becky) Brigman
Currently serving as Secretary, and serves on the Executive and Social Committees
I am honored to be a member of the board of directors for the Centre Region Down Syndrome Society. As the mother of a child with Down syndrome, I am excited to work hard to represent families who are fortunate enough to have someone with an extra chromosome who brightens their lives. My professional background is in education. After teaching 10 years locally, I felt the pull to be home with my kids. I am passionate about early childhood literacy and helping children develop a passion and love for reading. Elwood, my son with Down syndrome, turned 3 years old in January 2023. Elwood has two older siblings, Dotty and Simon, who are often his best teachers. As a member of this board, I am committed to helping each individual with Down syndrome in our community experience meaningful opportunities and to be a part of a network of advocates for individuals of marginalized populations.
