Join us to welcome and hear from PW Moderator of the Presbyterian Church USA. Carol Winkler is an energizing speaker with a message for us.

She has served PW as well as PC(USA) as a leader at all levels of the church. A member of First Presbyterian Church, FT. Thomas KY., she is from the Synod of the Covenant. Carol and her husband have 3 married children and 6 grandchildren. Over the years, Carol has owned her own business, been a substitute teacher and served on the staff of the Presbytery of Cincinnati, but her real love has been as a volunteer for the church, PW, schools and local organizations. As a volunteer reading coach in the local elementary school, she balances her commitment to the church/PW and lives out her lifelong commitment to child advocacy. If she has spare time, you will find her quilting and collecting fabric.
