Corky and Chuck Carlsen Announced as Champions For Learning Mentors of the Year - Champions For Learning™
Chuck and Corky first became involved with Champions For Learning by mentoring two students through the Take Stock in Children program, and brought their passion to the success of their mentees. Chuck joined the Board of Directors and serves as the Vice Chair of Community Outreach. His leadership with the Champions For Learning Ambassadors Council has helped the volunteer outreach group to recruit a significant number of volunteers and mentors. Chuck and Corky are also this year’s Mentors of the Year. Chuck and Corky not only give their time, but also provide philanthropic leadership. Last year, they were instrumental in meeting a financial matching challenge for the College and Career Preparation Program that helps to sustain support for future students. Their impact is put best by Isabel, Corky’s mentee, “My experience with my mentor is a one in a million.”
