Worcester Magazine recently named two Holy Cross community members as "Women to Watch" in 2022.

Holy Cross  COVID Response Director Carrie Peck and alumna Elizabeth Wambui '09, who is currently the director of diversity, inclusion and community impact at Fontaine Bros, were among those the magazine called "fresh faces in the community who are doing the hard work of pushing back against bias."

Peck, who is a longtime employee of the College, was honored for playing "an integral role in fulfilling a twice per-week testing policy for on-campus students and staff, along with enforcing strict mask mandates, contact tracing and disinfecting protocols."

The article also cited Peck as being "a treasured member of the Worcester community," who routinely gives back by writing grants for Living in Freedom Together, donating graphic design services to the Regional Environmental Council, and serving on the Vaccine Corps at UMass Medical School.

Wambui, a Worcester native and proud graduate of North High School, who was a political science major at Holy Cross, was honored for her role in increasing diversity in the construction workforce in the city.

"I look forward to collaborating with colleagues across all sectors and others in our community to make Worcester the representative and inclusive city that we all know it can be," Wambui said.
