Lisa Carmin

Lisa Carmin laughs when she says she is a professional volunteer, but her desire to give back to her community has been a plus for Tri Kappa.

“It’s an active group,” Lisa says about the Alpha chapter. “All the proceeds go to local organizations, so I can see our results.

“And I really like that Tri Kappa’s such a varied group of women (in age, professional life and experience).”

Asked “so nicely” to join Tri Kappa by Sullivan affiliate Nancy Gettinger several years ago, Lisa really likes working on the Cheeseball Committee.

“There is so much visiting time,” she says.

A graduate of Butler University with a biology degree and three minors, Lisa substitute taught in Monroe County for several years. Her teaching didn’t stop in the public realm, however, as she has shepherded toddlers in a Sherwood Oaks Christian Church Sunday School room for over 30 years.

She and her husband, Mike, have raised four children in Bloomington and now have two granddaughters. When she isn’t busy in her garden or reading, Lisa spends time as president of the local Pi Beta Phi Alum Club and as an active member of PEO (Philanthropic Educational Organization).

Lisa’s mantra is heart-felt and straightforward, just as she is: “Make me a blessing to someone today.”
