A longtime member of the Plymouth State University President’s Council has been awarded the 2009 Community Service Award from the Meredith Rotary Club.
Carol F. Gerken, Executive Director of Center Harbor, Meredith and Moultonborough Community Caregivers, was honored for outstanding community service. Gerken was chosen for the “Service Above Self” award due to her many community service efforts, including her work with Meredith Community Center Steering Committee, as the Director of the Inter-Lakes Senior Center, and Co-Chair of the Page Pond and Forest Conservation Fundraising Campaign.
Gerken has been a member of the President’s Council since 2001, serves on its Executive Committee and on the PSU Alumni Association Board as an ex officio member representing the President’s Council.
Gerken, a 1967 graduate of Plymouth State, said she is grateful to be honored for her community service work.
“The Meredith Rotary Club, recognized for its volunteer leadership in our community, demonstrates true commitment to community service. It is an honor to be recognized by the Rotary Community Service Committee with the “Service Above Self” Award, especially in this inaugural year. Together we make a difference in the daily lives of our neighbors,” Gerken said.
