A well-deserved honor for Sides

The name of the award says it all. And the person who received this year’s Dr. Alexander Nesbitt Commitment to Caring Award is a shining example of those words, “commitment to caring.”

Carol D. Sides has spent much of her life caring for this community, volunteering with an array of organizations. She has been known to go above and beyond in many pursuits for the public good.

“Carol is known as a woman who is relentless in her efforts to effect change in some very important arenas,” said Julieanne Steinbacher in presenting the award during a recent panel discussion hosted by the local chapter — founded by Sides — of the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

“We live in a world where a lot of people will look around and see problems,” said Dr. Nesbitt during the event. “Carol sees problems and looks to see what she can do to make this better.”

Congratulations, Carol, on this award, so very well deserved. This community is better for having you in it.
