President of the Foundation for Foster Children to be honored by Glamour Magazine’s Best of You award.
Michelle Carlton, President of the Foundation for Foster Children, is one of seven individuals in the nation selected as a finalist for Glamour Magazine’s 2010 Best of You award. Subject to public vote, the award honors women across the country that use both their inner and outer beauty to improve their communities. Her work will be featured in an upcoming Glamour Magazine article and $2,000 will be donated to the Foundation for Foster Children on her behalf.
In November 2009, Michelle Carlton received Family Services of Metro Orlando’s A. Ozzie Smith Champion for Children Award for her demonstration of both public leadership and personal commitment in advancing the cause of children and families in the Central Florida community from her position outside of the child welfare system.
“[I] just want to thank everyone who supported me,” Michelle said after being notified of her status as an award recipient. “It is a real honor to be selected and to have the opportunity to bring awareness to the plight of abused, neglected and abandoned children.”
