La Plata, MD (October 23, 2018) – The Governor’s Office on Service and Volunteerism hosted the 35th Annual Governor’s Service Awards on Tuesday, October 16th, to celebrate the outstanding volunteer contributions of Maryland residents and organizations. This year, 170 nominations were submitted. We are proud to announce that our very own board chair, Carolyn Core, was recognized for her significant contributions to our organization! Carolyn’s service to both Sagepoint and the community we serve has gone above and beyond her board commitment and we are so very appreciative of her continual selfless service.
Since her time as chair of the board, Carolyn has initiated Sagepoint’s Advisory Committee; started an annual review of the performance of the board; increased the board’s diversity; prepared for the transition of the organization’s CEO; and taken the lead in orchestrating contact between Sagepoint and The University of Maryland’s Charles Regional Medical Center to implement effective relationships so that each individual in Sagepoint’s care is ensured the highest quality of care. Carolyn also played a vital role in the development of Sagepoint’s new assisted living community, the expansion of its existing rehabilitation center, and the recent kick-off of a philanthropy program.
“We are overjoyed to see Carolyne Core recognized for her board service that goes far above and beyond what is expected of our board members,” remarked Andrea Dwyer, Sagepoint Senior Living Services President and CEO. “In fact, Sagepoint is fortunate to have a team of many supremely dedicated board members and we are very grateful for all of their service; they are truly invaluable assets to this organization!”
