Our Club Music Contest for high school students is named for our club member Carol Pierstorff, who died suddenly a few years ago. Carol graduated from Cranston East High School in 1966, and later from Brown University with a degree in Music. Since her early teenage years, Carol worked as a full or part-time church organist and was involved with other musical and theatrical groups since her college days.
 
Following receipt of her MBA (UNH, 1979), Carol worked as a consultant prior to taking a position with IHRDC where she became Vice President, Marketing and Sales. She developed her love for international business and travel. In 1992, she took a position with the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and moved from Dover, NH to the Washington, DC area. She directed various USAID programs throughout the world and ultimately took an assignment with USAID in Moscow, Russia in 2000. Upon retirement, Carol returned to her musical roots and served as a substitute organist for numerous churches in the Northern
Virginia and DC area. She also sang with the Piedmont Singers as well as the New Dominion Chorale.
 
As a member of the Rotary Club of Falls Church, VA she served as International Service Director and Sergeant-at-Arms. Carol generously gave of her time and financial resources to many organizations and people in need. We miss her and are glad to honor her legacy and caring spirt.
