WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The YWCA is awarding a woman for her grit and resilience in the education world.
Carolyn Jones is one of 2018's women of wisdom.
Jones spent 44 years immersing herself in the education world. During that time she held a number of positions.
Perhaps one of the most influential, was a job she took on at Purdue University. She was the University's first ever Title IX coordinator.
Jones said helping people is something she loves to do.
"I really decided I wanted to be a difference maker and for me, being a teacher was going to be my avenue to it," said Jones.
Although Jones is retired, she is still very active in the community. She spends her time volunteering and traveling.
