San Mateo County supervisor honored for advocacy
AbilityPath named learning center after Carole Groom
Carole Groom never imagined a learning center would be named after her, however, that’s exactly what happened as the San Mateo County supervisor is being honored for her decades of advocacy for AbilityPath. Groom is terming out after 12 years on the Board of Supervisors and has served on AbilityPath’s Board of Directors since the 1970s. The nonprofit organization serves people with special needs and is rooted in giving the disabled community a chance to succeed.
On Monday, she was honored during a ceremony in Burlingame where the Carole Groom Learning Center was unveiled.
“It took my breath away when I saw it,” Groom said.
