Rebecca Morley '00

At Springside, Rebecca was a reliable and steady force in the Class of  2000. She was the yearbook editor and a solid and steady leader in her class. She took her focus and creativity to Lehigh University where she was captain of the lacrosse team and earned a B.A. in journalism with a concentration in public relations.
 
Post Lehigh, Rebecca worked at Devine + Partners, where she served as Vice President and Chief Growth Officer and represented some of the Mid-Atlantic region’s leading organizations. In that capacity, she represented a variety of clients, including the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, to promote recreation on the Tidal Delaware River; the Circuit Coalition, to brand the region’s trail network; the Philadelphia Zoo, to garner attention for its groundbreaking Zoo360 trail system; The Franklin Institute on its Philadelphia Science Festival; and many others. While at Devine, she consistently offered to take on SCH seniors for their senior projects to give them a taste of the ABCs of public relations in Philadelphia.
 
The William Penn Foundation, the region’s largest private foundation with $2.4 billion in assets, recognized a good thing when they saw it and wisely hired Rebecca in 2014 to be their Director of Communications. In this role, she is responsible for leading and coordinating all communications activities on behalf of the Foundation. She works closely with Foundation leadership and staff to identify opportunities to highlight the Foundation’s grantees and the important work it supports.
 
In addition to helping the community through her job, Rebecca is also a steadfast volunteer. She recently stepped down from the board of Students Run Philly Style after serving in that capacity for the last six years. She currently serves on Project HOME’s Development Committee and has been involved with its Bringing Philly Home event for the last 10 years. During that time Rebecca chaired this major fundraising event on two different occasions. She also serves on the Young Friends Committee for the Mann Center for the Performing Arts.
