An announcement from MNN said “Carol Duncan is being honored for her extensive service to the Greater Lowell community in her roles at nonprofits, on boards of directors, and as an experienced educator. Carol served as Executive Director of Girls Inc. from 1991 to 2013, where she put her passion for serving young women into leading an organization dedicated to inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
