When you talk to Rosellen Sullivan about the Carroll Center for the Blind, her enthusiasm and passion is infectious. Rosellen was first introduced to the Carroll Center at a board reception where she heard a Carroll Center graduate speak about his vision loss and his Carroll Center journey that gave him his independence back. Rosellen has been an avid supporter ever since.
As a member of the Trustees and then the Board of Directors since 2013 and through her work on the Development and Strategic Planning Committees, she has provided invaluable guidance to Carroll Center leadership. Rosellen becomes more emotionally invested each time she engages with clients and embraces our mission with profound empathy for those who are blind or visually impaired. Rosellen believes, “we have to keep doing the work that supports those whose lives we dramatically impact.”
After years of supporting the Carroll Center’s annual fund, Rosellen was happy to include the Carroll Center as a beneficiary in her will. Rosellen shares, “for those who want to help others on their journey towards independence, a gift to the Carroll Center provides the invaluable programming needed for children, adults and seniors with blindness and vision loss.”
