United Way of Central Florida
November Volunteer Spotlight
Dr. Pam Craven is not only the Executive Director of Learning Resource Center, she is also an indispensible UWCF volunteer and partner. Craven, who is also contracted to assist with our new ReadingPals program, goes above and beyond through her many efforts to not only advocate for UWCF, but also to encourage our partners as they strive to provide the measurable, impactful change that United Way is known for.
Craven's background is in educational reform, and she has served on task forces and advisory boards, as well as conducting workshops on the district, state, and regional levels. As a member of United Way's Community Impact Cabinet, she represents UWCF partners in Education and works with the Cabinet to identify the ways in which we can measurably improve the academic performance of the students we serve.
When not advocating for education, Craven also leads workshops for our community partners, guiding them in team-building, strategizing, and measuring their impact on the people they serve.
"Pam is just amazing," said Penny Borgia, UWCF's Chief Operating Officer and coordinator of the Community Investment Committee. "She accomplishes more in a day than most of us do in a month. In addition to directing Learning Resource Center and serving on too many committees to count, she teaches at both Polk State College and Florida Southern.”
Pam Craven, we salute you! Thank you for all that you do to create positive change in our community.
