2021: Charlotte Prescott Newton ’71
Charlotte was in the last freshman class at the Mary A. Burnham School, and after the School’s move to Greenfield, she became a very active member in the newly formed SBS Community and held significant leadership roles.
Charlotte stayed in the Boston area after college, working in neonatal research and intensive care nursing. She has been a breeder, owner, and exhibitor of AKC Clumber Spaniels. And, in the early 1990’s, Charlotte shifted careers to work in financial services. Now retired, Charlotte, along with her two French Bulldogs, Liza and Tuggie, enjoys her new home and community in Sedona, Arizona.
As a Stoneleigh-Burnham trustee, Charlotte was active in the School’s 2014-2016 major capital initiative. Her generous gift allowed for the creation of the Newton Hub, which has given the SBS community a central place to gather. The Hub is a campus crossroads, abuzz with students before meals, between classes, and in the afternoon before athletics. Having stepped off the Board in 2020, Charlotte continues to stay involved with her school as a member of the Leadership Council.
