Hamcation Starts New Award in Honor of RCA Director Carole Perry

RCA Director Carole Perry has been leading RCA’s Youth Initiative for over 30 years.   Carole’s mission is to get middle and high school aged youth interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) using the vehicle of amateur radio.

Each year Carole attends numerous youth and amateur radio events all over the U.S., and even overseas.  One of the events she has been attending is the “Hamcation” event in Orlando Florida, and this year they decided to start a new legacy award in honor of Carole.  Carole was the first recipient of it:  The Carole Perry Educator of the Year Award!  Each year going forward an educator will be chosen to receive this new award, based on their promoting the use of amateur radio among youth.

Congratulations to Carole for her pioneering work in introducing youth to STEM subjects in school!!
