Kim Beckett

Kim Beckett of Guilford is a familiar face around Guilford schools, having served on the PTA and the GHS Unity Group to create a culture of acceptance and celebration of differences to help reduce bullying. She also co-chairs Guilford DAY (Developmental Assets for Youth) and has helped develop the town’s United Sports Program. Kim brought the “Spread the Word to End the Word” campaign to Guilford Public Schools, and implemented the Positive Coaching Alliance Program in Guilford. Thanks to Kim, DAY has trained more than 200 coaches and team captains with the goal to provide all youth and high school athletes
with a positive, character-building sports experience. With Kim’s help, the results of DAY’s survey of students in grades 7 through 12 demonstrate significant improvements in the developmental assets town youth report. In addition to her work as an advocate for Guilford youth, Kim is an integral part of Guilford’s First Congregational Church.
