About Karen Albond

The award is named for Karen Albond, a longtime HANCI Boardmember who passed away in November 2003 after significant volunteer and professional service to the Niagara community.

Professionally, Karen was a commercial artist.  She was also a wife, mother, grandmother and friend.  Karen volunteered for such organizations as HANCI, the friends of the Niagara Falls Public Library, the Kidney Foundation of Western New York, the United Way of Niagara, the YMCA, the St. Francis Guild of Mount St. Mary's Hospital, Beta Sigma Phi Sorority and Niagara University.

But HANCI remembers Karen Albond for what she was not.  Karen was not a person who could be held back by illness or disability.  After suffering multiple strokes and the devastarting effects of an automobile accident, she insisted on continuing to contribute to the community she loved.

Karen Albond was and is a role model for others who, in the midst of physical weakness, reveal their great strength.
