New England ASID 2013 Excellence in Design Award Gala Presents Patti Austin & Dawn Carroll
This coming March 21, 2013, Patti Austin (a Grammy Award-winning singer / songwriter and Design Mentee) and Dawn Carroll (an Award-winning stone designer at Cumar, Inc.) will take center-stage for their achievements in bringing mentoring to the forefront of thought in the New England design industry. The event will take place at the Mandarin Oriental, Back Bay, Boston, MA.
The ASID New England Chapter 2013 GALA “Celebrating Excellence in Design” celebrates interior designers, educators and industry professionals who are outstanding leaders and innovators in the design community. As such, with the fact that OMSF has launch major events such as “Designing the Next Generation”, it was only a matter of time that they would be recognized for their contribution in the design community.
The event is expected to be an inspirational evening celebrating and inspiring design professionals to join the OMSF mentoring mission called “Designing the Next Generation” a series of awards created by OMSF and Cumar Marble & Granite that celebrate those who share their time, expertise, and wisdom with upcoming generations of designers. With this ASID recognition for the community service Patti and Dawn have achieved through OMSF, Dawn is further energized to guide her OMSF Co-Founder Patti Austin in the beginnings of her blossoming career as an interior designer.
“For my ‘real job’, I am a stone designer at Cumar Marble & Granite. Our company is currently in its 8th generation of leadership in stone sourcing and fabrication in Everett, MA. Without mentoring and apprenticeships, the work that we do would not be possible. It is because of both my jobs, Cumar and OMSF, that I am so very excited to announce that both Patti Austin and I are being recognized this year for our service in the design community at the New England ASID 2013 Excellence in Design Award ceremonies” Dawn Carroll comments.
ASID New England President Mary Beth Haggerty commends their time and effort spent into making “Mentorology” a legitimate art and skill, “I know they have poured their heart and soul into mentoring”. (View Release)
