In Memoriam.....WHC Director & Past President - Karen Kroll
It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the passing of one of our long-time directors and past president, Karen Kroll.
Karen had been a WHC member and director for many decades. She served as the WHC Board of Director's Secretary, as our President and then as our Past President on our Executive Board for many of those years. Karen also served on almost all of the WHC Committees at some point. Karen most recently received the WHC Director of the Year Award in 2017. Her dedication to the WHC was undeniable and much appreciated and she will be greatly missed.
