When I met Charolette Tidwell I wondered if she ever sleeps because for most people there wouldn't be enough hours in a day to accomplish what this demure and dauntless woman does every day. At 70 she wears many hats and has more energy than people much less than half her age – an energy fueled by a generosity of spirit and strong desire to make a difference, a characteristic instilled in her by her parents, the nuns where she attended Catholic school, and her church family.
