“No matter the setting or context, she displayed great energy, demonstrated unparalleled curiosity and exuded a love of life… She wanted her passing to serve as a reminder to all that everyday is to be cherished, that tomorrow is not a promise, and that it is never to soon to share your love with others.”
Dr. Darlene Costa Brown served as the Vice President of the Board of Trustees at Girls Inc. of Taunton. During her time with our organization she served as chair of the Fundraising Committee and assisted with details of the Administration and Finance Committees. She was fiercely committed to our mission and to our members.
Her profound impact on our organization and its members has been felt through her volunteer instruction of the Economic Literacy curriculum and her service on our Board of Trustees. As a member of the administration and finance committee, she assisted in developing financial policies, and as chair of the fundraising committee aided in shaping our centennial year celebrations. As vice president, Darlene hoped to lead us in shaping a future that was both secure and dynamic. Her enthusiasm and fierce dedication for enriching the lives of our members infuses our mission and aids us in carrying on her life’s work.
Darlene’s honorable dedication to improving the world she lived in and service to the young girls in our community will be honored through the Annual Love of Life Event. Girls Inc. of Taunton will recognize an annual benefactor who demonstrates a commitment to our mission and assists in shaping a dynamic and secure future, just as Darlene did. A Girl’s Inc. member will also be awarded a merit-based scholarship. The Dr. Darlene Costa Brown Leadership Scholarship recognizes the exceptional leadership skills and the innate qualities that inspire others to be strong, smart and bold.
