Beecroft began her career with the Women’s Center in 1989 and has been acting as CEO since 1993. She was instrumental in the development, funding and construction of a 52-bed shelter in 2007. “I wouldn’t be able to do any of those things that are in this proclamation without my staff,” said Beecroft, specifically naming her “right-hand person” Karen Stone. “I appreciate everything that the community has done. Keep supporting the Women’s Center,” said Beecroft. — Photo by Laura Austin
