I had the pleasure of working with Penny Cowden over the course of about two years. Penny was effective in so many ways. First, she communicated in a positive manner with me and all of her contacts. Second, she brought a vision to bear that was customized to fit the community and, in so doing, was able to target her efforts effectively. Third, she has an innate sense of people’s impact and was instrumental in connecting key constituents. In the world of philanthropy, you can not find a more impactful and supportive person than Penny Cowden.
