“Ms. Brenda,” as she’s known around the Foundation, is the definition of love and kindness. Born in Wisconsin, Brenda Shearer’s background is nothing short of impressive. She holds a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction in Reading Language Arts, has co-authored four graduate level textbooks, and was a tenured professor at University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh.
But these are not the things that define Brenda. As she puts it, “I left ‘Dr. Shearer’ at the university when I retired.” Volunteering at the Four Seasons Foundation is now her greatest joy and passion in life.
