The Berkshire Edge picks up BLP Class of 2019’s project.
“Pittsfield — Rebecca Brien is a lifelong resident of the Berkshires. She was born and raised in Richmond, and both her parents were employed by local companies. When her father’s employer closed, and he was suddenly out of a job, Brien got a glimpse of how the local economy affected the landscape surrounding her. Brien ultimately followed in her mother’s footsteps, pursuing a job in the hospitality industry, and at the age of 13 was hired at a local bed and breakfast. Today, Brien is the director of sales and marketing at the Hilton Garden Inn Lenox Pittsfield; she is also one of 30 members of the 2019 Berkshire Leadership Program, a comprehensive course in local leadership offered by 1Berkshire and aimed at seeking, preparing, involving and sustaining leaders from diverse backgrounds who are committed and competent to address community challenges—namely, improving the quality of life in the Berkshires. For the BLP Class of 2019, their project will culminate Saturday, May 18, with “Berkshire Gives: One Day, One County” to benefit those at risk in our community.”
