Caroline Binger Child Advocacy and Educational Fellowship
Caroline Binger, a long-standing advocate for The Children’s Radio Foundation, dedicated her life to the mentoring and nurturing of children and young adults. She was a role model and inspiration for the many children and people whose lives she touched, teaching them the value of honesty, dignity, courage, and compassion. Her philosophy for living embodied the core values of the Children’s Radio Foundation: to support the intellectual and personal growth of children.
The Caroline Binger Child Advocacy and Educational Fellowship is presented each year to the individual who shares the values Caroline held most dear and whose heart, humanity, and dedication to the mission of the Children’s Radio Foundation is worthy of being singled out as extraordinary. The Children’s Radio Foundation believes that these values and qualities are essential in the personal development of tomorrow’s leaders.
