Kathryn Sorbe Brazieal- 1964 Alum
- Where are you currently employed? I spent 36 years as a teacher and administrator at the secondary level. I was mostly a teacher but was an administrator for 12 years. I worked in many places in the west including California, Oregon, Nevada, and Utah. I received my Associate’s Degree at Snow College then went on to Utah State and BYU and received my Bachelor’s degree and Master’s Degree. I graduated from Snow College in Home Economics then went back to school to major in Special Education and received my Master’s in Educational Psychology. I also went back to school for my Administrative Certificate so that I could be an Administrator.
- How did Snow College contribute to your accomplishments? Snow College set the ground work to know I could succeed in college. I loved the special one-on-one attention. Mrs. Kay encouraged me to be a teacher, and I am now encouraging my granddaughter to be as well. Snow College started me on the right path to a career I truly enjoyed. It has a “special place in my heart”. I still have a Snow College sweatshirt from 1962 and a picture in my office at home of the Snow College Administration Building. I also loved the “small town closeness” that Snow College provides. I went to almost every school in Utah at some point and all were good, but none could have provided me with the same success starting out as Snow College did.
- What is your most memorable moment at Snow College? I remember very well the fun times I had with my roommates. I lived in Fern Young Hall, which was the only all-girls dorm at the time. The rooms were made for 6 roommates in each apartment but there were 9 in mine. I still communicate with those roommates and we are all still good friends. In fact, we had a “roommate reunion” just recently!
- What additional information would you like for other alumni to know about you? I am happily retired in St. George, Utah (with my daughter and her family nearby in Santa Clara) but still do plenty to stay busy! I volunteer with the school system in St. George quite often. I say, “Once a school teacher, always a school teacher!”
