Caeresa Richardson, a recently elected member of the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways Board of Directors, is a winner of the Stover Volunteerism Award for her volunteer work with the Girl Scouts. The Eaton program recognizes employees who have distinguished themselves in their community through charitable service.
Caeresa works as an Associate Product Line Manager with Eaton’s Crouse Hinds Division. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Syracuse University, is a certified Project Management Professional and a graduate of the John Hopkins Leadership Development Program for Minority Managers. Caeresa is very active in the Central New York community and has collaborated in several leadership capacities with organizations such as A Good Life Youth Foundation and The Promise Land Church. She is also a member of Junior League of Syracuse. In 2014, she was a recipient of the YWCA Diversity Achiever Award for her contributions to the CNY community. She lives in Liverpool, New York with her husband, David.
As a winner of the volunteerism award, she will receive a certificate and Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways will receive a check for $500 from Eaton. When asked why she works with the Girl Scouts, Caeresa said, “I chose to volunteer with the Girl Scouts [of] NYPENN because, to me, the mission and values of the Girl Scouts organization align with my personal mission and dedication for the development of professional women and young girls.” Thank you, Caeresa, for your efforts to help girls become great women.
