Ellen Brooks '62: Leaving a Graceful Legacy

With the opening of the Ellen Brooks Gallery in the Community Technology Center in 2008, St. Margaret’s was able to celebrate a beautiful manifestation of Ellen Brooks’ passion and philanthropy. A member of the class of 1962, Ellen provided for a lasting legacy of artistic expression and joie de vivre that she celebrated every day of her life by leaving St. Margaret’s a gift in her will, one which was designated to fund an art gallery on campus. Through her bequest, Ellen has allowed all St. Margaret’s girls the opportunity to see their art displayed in a beautiful setting as well as gain an appreciation for art through the exhibitions which have and will grace the walls of the Ellen Brooks Gallery.
