Philanthropist of the Year: Carol Adams

Philanthropist of the Year: Carol Adams

From the time she was a young girl, Carol Adams has served. From the Junior League to the Public Library; from the Crippled Children’s Clinic to the Parkersburg, West Virginia Community Foundation… she’s done it all. So it wasn’t surprising that when she and her family arrived in Hendersonville in 2003, Carol started putting in valuable time with the Pardee Foundation.
Beginning with the Women Helping Women Committee in the early years, to chairing the fundraising committee, to then joining the Pardee Foundation Board where she has served in various roles including Secretary to By-Laws and Nominating Committees and co-Chair for the Capital Campaign for the Elizabeth Reilly Breast Center, she’s never slowed down.
In addition to her work with Pardee, this loving heart has also been active at St. James Episcopal Church with various volunteer leadership roles. After a brief hiatus from the foundation board, she rejoined the board in 2012 and will finish 6 years of devoted service with tireless commitment to Planned Giving, Generations and Annual Fund; chairing the Annual Fund Committee for the last couple years.
Loving wife, mother of 2, grandmother of 3… we couldn’t be more honored to recognize Carol Adams as Pardee’s Philanthropist of the Year.
