A member of Immaculata’s Board
of Trustees, Behm chaired the Selec-
tion Committee for the first lay chair of
the Board, helping to choose Barbara
Lettiere to uphold the IHM charism and
the IU mission.
Behm led Padua Academy’s Board of Trustees in establishing endow-
ment and writing grants. Padua Academy gave Behm the Founders
Award for her leadership. Former DE Governor Carper appointed Behm
to the Commission for Delaware Women, which helped create programs
for women transitioning from welfare into the work environment.
When Behm was president of Wilmington Women in Business
(WWB), the group helped create a mentorship program that pairs
WWB members with local girls. Behm also led WWB in establishing
the Fresh Start Scholarship Foundation, which supports women seeking
college degrees.
