In Honor of Carol Wardell
Carol Wardell has donated countless hours to advocate for the fair treatment of our most vulnerable citizens… our kids! As a Superior Court Judge, Carol helped start the Chelan-Douglas CASA Program. With this program, children involved in dependency actions have their own, individual advocates to speak for their best interests to the courts.
This scholarship is a simple way to honor Carol’s strong will and resolve in seeking a prosperous life for all the kids who have been in foster or relative care. The goal of this scholarship is to assist these same children as they become future parents, role models and leaders.
