Hathaway Brown School celebrates alumna Jane Quayle Outcalt '55 and her husband, Jon Outcalt, as they are honored by Breakthrough Schools of Cleveland at Breakthrough BASH 2023 for their dedicated voluntarism and leadership. 

A dynamic contributor to Hathaway Brown, Jane is a Lifetime Trustee having served as a Trustee for 17 years, and was Board President. In 2005, she was named a Distinguished Alumna. Her leadership at her alma mater and throughout Cleveland is exemplary and we are delighted that she and Jon are being recognized for their service at Breakthrough Schools. 

When asked what receiving this acknowledgement meant to them, Jane shared, "We were surprised and very honored to receive the award. I have worked with John Zitzner for a long time. When John founded Friends of Breakthrough Schools, he created an environment that helped meet the needs of our young students living in Greater Cleveland."

Jane reflected that Hathaway Brown has a similar focus as Breakthrough Schools on setting values and enhancing instruction for students. She said, "I loved my time at HB and my academic experience certainly helped me in my career and college choice. Fran is doing a wonderful job, especially as she leads the school through a major campaign."
