Rebecca M. Carbone Named 2008 MS Corporate Achiever
NEW HAVEN, Conn. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Connecticut Chapter has named Rebecca M. Carbone, New Haven public schools student teacher, a 2008 MS Corporate Achiever one of only 18 leaders within the New Haven region to be so named.
A resident of New Haven, Conn., Carbone received her Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., in 2006 and her master’s degree in education from the University of New Haven in 2008.
“Multiple sclerosis is a potentially debilitating disease affecting individuals very differently,” says Carbone. “Currently, there is no cure for MS. It is imperative that scientific research continue if we are to find a cure. I want to do what I can to help find a cure, develop new treatments and, ultimately, eradicate this disease.”
Carbone has volunteered at local schools while completing her master’s degree.
Established by the Connecticut Chapter in 2000, MS Corporate Achievers is a recognition program honoring some of Connecticut’s most influential leaders while at the same time raising critically needed funds to ensure ongoing scientific research and the continuation of vital programs and services offered by the chapter to the more than 6,000 Connecticut residents diagnosed with MS. Honorees are nominated by their peers and selected by an advisory council board for making outstanding contributions to business, civic and cultural enrichment.
Through participation, honorees join an elite leadership network sharing a commitment to making Connecticut a better place in which to live. Since 2000 honorees have raised nearly $550,000 to help end the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis.
“Ms. Carbone is truly an effective leader within New Haven public schools and throughout her community,” said Lisa Gerrol, Connecticut Chapter president and chief professional officer. “She is committed to raising funds in the fight against MS and devoted to elevating life within the New Haven region, her hometown of New Haven and even the state.”
