WomenSafe honors Mitchell with ‘Women Who Change the World’ award

MIDDLEBURY — WomenSafe is pleased to announce that Cheryl Mitchell is the recipient of the 2017 Kimberly Krans Women Who Change the World Award. The public is invited to stop by on Wednesday, March 29, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at 109 Catamount Park in Middlebury and help us honor and celebrate Mitchell’s dedication to the community. Refreshments will be provided.
Mitchell lives with her extended family on their sheep farm in New Haven. Over the years she has felt so grateful to be a part of this warm and wonderful Addison County Community. She has worked at Mary Johnson Children’s Center, been a co-founder and employee of the Addison County Parent/Child Center, Vermont’s Deputy of Agency of Human Services, worked at the University of Vermont and People of Addison County Together.
She attended Swarthmore College, UVM, and the Union Institute and University, but most of her learning has come from experience. She worked with others to create the Addison County Community Trust, several childcare programs, the Vermont Parent/Child Center Network, the local branch of CCV, the Addison County Farmworkers Coalition, and the Addison County Dental Clinic.
She currently does consulting for NOFA (the Northeast Organic Farming Association) and the Agency of Education. She serves on the Boards of Nomadicare, Beacon Hill Friends House, Treleven, and the Permanent Fund for Vermont Children.
Please stop by on March 29 to celebrate Mitchell and all that she does for our community! For more information, contact WomenSafe at 388-9180.
WomenSafe presents the award annually to a woman in Addison County and Rochester whose outstanding work and achievements have had positive impacts on and furthered the safety of women and/or children in our community. The award ceremony is held in March as part of National Women’s History Month.
