Carol Vincent to receive countywide lifetime volunteer honorTuesday, April 25, 2017
Our own Carol Vincent, former board president and a multi-faceted volunteer for our organization for 28 years, will be the recipient of this year’s Willard Jue Memorial Award, presented by the Association of King County Heritage Organizations (AKCHO) at its award program from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, April 25, 2017, at the Northwest African American Museum.
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.
