New on the job: Carol Hone

Carol Hone is leading the Mercer County Civic Foundation as its new executive director, following Glen Hux’s retirement last month. Carol previously served as a teacher and school administrator for over 35 years. Philanthropy Ohio recently interviewed Carol about her new position.

Why did you make the move? “I recently retired from education, but I needed to do something else to make a difference.  I feel that I still have something to give back to a community that has been so good to me.”

What do you hope to accomplish? “I want to continue the work and legacy of the foundation from the groundwork that has been laid by others.”

What’s surprised you so far? “The volume of giving in this community is beyond commendable. I have learned so much about the whole area of philanthropy and the caring people we serve.”
