Peter and Beth Horan!

Beth and Peter have been married for thirty years and raised four children in Darien, all of whom have now left the nest. They are thoroughly enjoying living with such smart, vivacious, and joy-filled girls. Their family members have visited the house and fit right in, enjoying the scholars’ company during game night and dance-a-thons in the kitchen. Beth and Peter look forward to planning many more fun activities with the girls and to being there to love, support and nurture them in the weeks and months to come.



To provide scholarships to academically talented girls of color from underserved communities allowing them to realize their academic and social potential while living in Darien and attending DHS.
