2017 Katherine S. Rozendaal Awardee

 

The YWCA is proud to announce the 2017 Katherine S. Rozendaal Awardee, Carole Merrill-Mazurek.

Many of you are very familiar with the work Carole did here at the YWCA for over 25 years in the domestic violence programs.

In retirement, Carole has continued to utilize her tremendous skills to help the community by volunteering at the local food pantry, Schenectady City Inner Ministry (SICM), and continuing to serve on the Boards of Bethesda House and Fostering Hope, contributing her knowledge to the betterment of the citizens of Schenectady.

Carole is also a self-taught artist who has donated paintings to various organizations for fund raisers. Carole is a wonderful role-model to anyone who aspires to volunteer. We look forward to many more years of her selfless and dedicated service to those in need.
