Marcia Carthaus to be honored by University Alumni Association
Marcia C. Carthaus (Ed.D, '73) will receive the Alumni Service Award for dedicated volunteer service from the University's Alumni Association, which will honor outstanding alumni volunteers, groups, and programs at a celebratory event held at the McNamara Alumni Center on Oct. 20.
"Most of the University's 400,000 living graduates care about their alma mater," said Phil Esten, president and chief executive officer of the Alumni Association. "But there are unique individuals who move beyond caring and devote an incredible amount of time and talent as alumni volunteers. Each year we honor them for making significant contributions to the strength and future success of our University."
Carthaus has been a dedicated volunteer for both the college and the University. An
educator and director of special education for 30 years in the Edina Public Schools, Carthaus has served as a founding member of the CEHD Women's Philanthropic Leadership Circle, member and president of the Alumni Association's Southwest Florida chapter, and national board representative.
Fourteen alumni will receive the University of Minnesota Alumni Service Award, which honors long-time service and a legacy of volunteerism.
