UVa Today: Bruce "Sonny" Beale

June 18, 2009

Bruce "Sonny" Beale has a large family. "People ask me how many kids I have and tell them I have two of my own and 400 of other people's," said Beale, director of the University of Virginia's recycling program.

Beale and his wife, Debra, recently received the 2009 Governor's Volunteerism and Community Service Award for their work assisting local refugees in their adjustment to life in the United States.

The Beales have spent many years helping refugees find work, complete their education and learn new customs.

Beale stopped by the Newsplex to talk about his work in our weekly UVa Today segment.
