Over the course of ten years, babies become big kids, toddlers become teenagers, and big kids become fully grown adults. Small, incremental changes add up so significantly over ten years that we track trends in fashion, music, movies, even social movements by decade. Even fifty or one hundred years later, we can recognize the shifts that happen from one decade to the next – how the 1920s differed from the 1930s or the ‘60s from the ‘70s. While we cannot know yet how the world will remember the past decade, we know that our 2020 Ten Year Service Award Recipient has undoubtedly contributed immensely to the success of Multiples of America and in doing so, improved the lives of multiples families throughout the country.
Kathryn Magner began volunteering as a National Worker in 2008. First, she joined the Research Department where she served for three years (2008-2011). In 2011, Kathryn transitioned to the Membership Department and worked as Membership Statistician for four years (2011-2015). Since then, Kathryn has contributed her time and talents to Multiples of America as Research Chair (2015-16), Convention Committee Member (2017-18), and for the past year as a Research Committee Member (2019-20). Kathryn is a member of Hamden County Mothers of Twins Club (MA).
Thank you, Kathryn and all previous Ten Year Service Award Recipients, for a full decade of service with Multiples of America. With your help, we have been able to continue to fulfill our mission to support families of multiple birth children through support, research, and education.
