Strengthening Families Washington 2016 Unsung Hero: Beth Schubert

Unsung Hero 2016 Beth Schubert

February 12, 2016

Honoree:  Beth Schubert, Puyallup

Nominator:  Angela Fish


Beth is first and foremost a wonderful mother, who puts the needs of her children and her family first. She helps her daughter navigate the Running Start program and her many extra-curricular activities.

Beth also homeschools her son who has both autism and a neuromuscular condition. He had to be taken out of public school due to the issues they had getting him an appropriate education for his special needs, and he is now thriving at home.

Despite her own health issues that had her in critical care a number of times, she completed her education and is now a Registered Nurse, serving with the very nurses who took care of her when she was hospitalized. In between all of these things, she also volunteers extensively.

Beth is the Director for Camp Promise for children who have neuromuscular conditions, and she also is the Director for the Miss Exceptional Pageant, which is a pageant for young ladies that experience special needs. Her work with the camp for the Jett Foundation and the pageant for the Exceptional Families Network impacts many local special needs families. She also always ready to give advice related to special education advocacy, and she has lots of great gluten-free recipes for anyone who asks.

Beth has a constant positive spirit, never-ending creativity and boundless energy that she willingly shares with all who come into contact with her. To know her is to call her friend, and we all need more friends like Beth.
