Amy Carroll Honored with 40 Under 40 2012


Latham Board member Amy Carroll was recently honored with a "40 Under 40" award by the Cape & Plymouth Business Magazine. The annual award program recognizes distinguished businesspeople under the age of 40.

Working in conjunction with the Cape Cod Young Professionals and South Shore Young Professionals, this program spotlights the region's top young business leaders who excel in their industry and show dynamic leadership and a commitment to community service.  Amy was selected from a competitive pool of more than 250 nominations! She received her award on  June 14th at Indian Pond Country Club in Kingston at a special ceremony where Latham board members, staff, friends, family and colleagues attended in support of Amy's much-deserved recognition.

A resident of Barnstable, Amy is extremely active in her community and professional life. As a trained psychotherapist, assistant director of programs at Riverview School in East Sandwich, and a board member of Latham Centers, Amy's life is entirely committed to working with adolescents and young adults with learning challenges. At Riverview School, Amy's management position helps this independent, coeducational boarding school provide a caring community for adolescents and young adults with complex language, learning and cognitive disabilities.

As a volunteer board member of Latham Centers, and a family member of a Latham adult resident, Amy has served on the board's advocacy, development, human resources, and strategic planning committees over recent years. She also worked for a short time at Latham School early in her career. As Amy pursued her Masters of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology, she interned at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention Against Cruelty to Children in Hyannis.  She continues to volunteer annually for the Simon Youth Foundation during the holiday season toward fostering and improving educational opportunities and career and life skills of at-risk youth.
