My name is Ted Freese and I'm the Director of Admissions at Benilde-St. Margaret's. I've been on staff at BSM since 2010, but more importantly, my wife and I joined the community when our son started in 7th grade in 2006 and our daughter followed him in 2008. Both have since graduated and are now off pursuing their college careers at Marquette and the University of British Columbia. As part of the Admissions team, and being a past parent, I look forward to meeting you. I love being part of the BSM community and sharing the many reasons that make it a wonderful school.

Hello my name is Samantha Savoie and I am the Associate Director of Admissions at BSM. I started in August 2014; although I have waited in the car line with parents (to pick up my brother when he was a Red Knight) years ago. I am a graduate of Hopkins High School and have a Catholic school teacher mother in the family as well. While Catholic school education was not a part of my K-12 education, going to a Catholic college made me realize the importance of faith in education. I graduated from St. Catherine's University in 2008 with a degree in secondary education and English. I am currently working on my Masters of Arts in education with a technology emphasis through St. Kate's as well. I love the world of education and I am excited by the thought of helping your family through your school selection. Thank you for considering BSM!

My name is Betsy Van Cleve, and I am the Associate Director of Admissions at BSM. Once upon a time, I roamed the hallways as a Red Knight student. As a 2006 BSM graduate, I credit this special school in shaping the person I am today. I am also a proud graduate of the College of Saint Benedict with a Bachelor's Degree in communication. Faith-based education is so valuable in society today. The opportunity to grow in mind, body and spirit is one I am grateful for each and every day. I look forward to meeting you and speaking about the incredible Red Knight experience!
