President Kent Frankenfeld, Nancy Carroll and Rotarian Sponsor Dan Divine
Nancy Carroll
Nancy is well known in the community for serving as the Park and Recreation Director for the City of Ames and now as the Executive Director at Heartland Senior Services, which is changing its name to Heartland of Story County. She has gone above the “job description” in both roles and works hard to improve the community by keeping us active. 
She was a key player in helping develop Healthiest Ames, building tennis courts at Ames High School, making the Furman Aquatic Center a reality, and so much more.
In her role at Heartland, she worked tirelessly on the Healthy Life Center project. Although it did not pass the bond vote, Nancy never lost sight of how to improve lives for those in our community aged 60 and above. 
Her ability to collaborate with others is now part of the Sixty Forward, Changing the Vision of Aging, a partnership between the City of Ames, Heartland of Story County, and Mary Greeley Medical Center. Heartland’s new facility will soon be under construction and will offer a breadth of programs, activities, and services to support physical activity, social networks, and health and nutrition.
Thanks to Nancy’s tireless efforts, our community is better for those 60 and over on their journey to age well. Nancy’s positive attitude and ability to encourage others to see the vision has helped our community stay healthy.
Nancy’s Rotarian sponsor is Dan Divine.
