Syrena Stackpole Award

Syrena Stackpole Award

Given annually at reunion by the WCAA, the Syrena Stackpole Award honors dedicated service and exceptional commitment to Wellesley. The red class of 1964, full of active volunteers, was the source of all three winners for 2014:

Cortlandt “Corty” Banks Fengler ’64

A former member of the WCAA Board of Directors and a former president of the Wellesley Club of Nothern California, Fengler is currently serving her class as vice president. She has also worked tirelessly in many fund-raising roles for the College: annual giving committee member, Development Fund chair, and now Durant chair for her class’s 50th reunion.

Carol DeCesare Goode ’64

Currently completing a term as class president and previously class vice president and record-book chair, Goode has also volunteered faithfully for the Minnesota Wellesley Club, serving as both president and treasurer. When she retired to Naples after a career teaching and working in the software industry, she became an active volunteer for the Wellesley Club of Naples.

Janet McCaa ’64

McCaa has served as class president and reunion volunteer, as president of the Western Maine Wellesley Club, and as a fund-raising volunteer for the College—including Durant chair and annual giving chair for her class. Last year, she spearheaded the Western Maine Club’s highly successful centennial celebration, complete with a fashion show of period costumes and a moving video of the club’s history.
