You can see the formal announcement at AKCHO website. The Willard Jue award is AKCHO’s equivalent of a lifetime achievement honor.

Please RSVP to Clay Eals, our executive director, by no later than Tuesday, April 18, if you would like to attend this free event.

You may wish to see that Carol was featured by KING-TV on March 22 in its coverage of the grand-reopening celebration of the Historic Admiral Theater, whose landmark campaign back in 1989 was Carol’s first involvement with our organization. Here is the link (scroll down to second video).

We are fortunate for this countywide recognition, and we are even more fortunate for the dedication, skill, commitment, passion and caring embodied in Carol (and husband Charlie) on behalf of our organization for nearly three decades.
