On August 1, 2014, the LL743 Women’s Committee chose this year’s education grant winner. On August 13, 2014 we had the pleasure to meet Korinne Fruster. Korinne is the daughter of Tony Fruster, a long time union activist who works for the Facilities Department.

Korinne is a bright and energetic young woman with aspirations to become involved in campaign management. Her goal is to be the voice for organizations and foundations dedicated to helping people, and maybe ultimately starting her own foundation someday. She will start this path in pursuit of a degree in public relations and communications at Lasell College in Massachusetts.

Korinne’s drive to help people started with her family’s strong faith in volunteerism in their communities. Her family enjoys helping those in need and making a difference with whatever little they had to spare. Their volunteering included running, participating or volunteering for charity events such as; Walk against Hunger, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Walk against Aids, Autism Speaks, food drives, and coat drives.
Korinne’s strong family values opened her eyes to volunteerism. Those values gave her the strength to use her own voice to help people conquer their battles. She learned how to stand up and be an advocate for those in need, whether by lending a hand or simply offering kind words.
We at LL743 want to commend Korinne on all of her past successful ventures. We also wish her the best on her new journey. It is young enthusiastic people like Korinne who can move a nation, a group of people or maybe just one lost soul.
