Social Worker wins 2004 Sloan Award
Rolanda Pyle, director of the Grandparent
Resource Center at the Dept. of the Aging, got one of seven Sloan Public
Service Awards from the Fund for the City of New York March 24.
Ms. Pyle heads the first municipal resource center for grandparents who,
often suddenly and without preparation, find themselves the main caregivers
for young children.
In 2000, she received a scholarship for social work school from SSEU Local
371s Committee of Concerned Social Workers. Fund President Dr. Mary
McCormick called the awardees innovators, compassionate human beings
and visionary thinkers who consistently make a difference.
