ARLX007 ARRL Mourns Loss of Caroline Kenney, QST Assistant Editor

ARRL, The National Association for Amateur Radio, mourns the passing
of our colleague and friend Caroline Kenney. Kenney died August 18,
2022, after battling cystic fibrosis. She was 28 years old.

Kenney was Assistant Editor for QST, ARRL's monthly membership
journal. "Over the past 6 years, Caroline has been a committed
professional member of our editorial team," said CEO David Minster,
NA2AA, in a message he shared with the ARRL staff and Board of
Directors. "Despite having to live a life with illness, she always
rose above it, excelling in her job as Assistant Editor, pushing us
and herself to do better. To be better. The world is a lesser place
today. God bless her and her family."

Kenney was born in Willimantic, Connecticut, and attended The
Woodstock Academy, class of 2012. She received Highest Honors when
graduating with her bachelor's degree from Assumption College, in
Worcester, Massachusetts in 2016. Although she worked as a full-time
editor at ARRL, her dream was to become a published author.

Editorial Director Becky Schoenfeld, W1BXY, shared that Kenney had
joined the ARRL staff fresh out of college, quickly fulfilling the
role of an incisive editor. "Her skills and contributions grew over
the years," said Schoenfeld. "She approached her work with an
intensity that never abated, even in these past weeks. She was also
a joy to be around. I dearly wish she were still among us; I miss
her already."

Donations in Caroline's name can be made to the Boomer Esiason
Foundation, a group that supports the cystic fibrosis community, at Caroline was gifted a college scholarship
through this foundation when she was attending Assumption College.
