“From the beginning we decided to make several commitments each year that would vividly refect the luv and spirit that made Carolyn so special. We simply, but meaningfully, named this part of our plan Promises Kept.”

In our first year, these have been focused on areas that Carolyn actively embraced and volunteered her time to support. They include: youth athletic programs, in honor of Carolyn’s years as a parent, coach and high school booster chair; and a range of vital women’s issues, including women’s prison re-entry programs, in honor of Carolyn’s years of service as Commissioner and past Chair of the Maryland Commission for Women and as a member of the National Association of Women Judges: Women Moving Forward Conference. She also cared deeply about parents and families with sick or troubled relatives, especially children. At all times, promises kept will evolve around our core commitment to mental health.
