Cindy Edelstein Mentorship Award

The Cindy Edelstein Mentorship Award has been established to honor our colleague and friend, Cindy Edelstein whose life was a consummate example of selflessness and altruism. Cindy was renowned for her dedication to the development, encouragement, and enrichment of the talents and lives of others.

This award shall be presented to candidates who exhibit the qualities that Cindy possessed: generosity of time and talent for the benefit of others without the expectation of personal or financial gain.

This award shall be presented only when such a candidate is identified; not necessarily on an annual basis.
