Keep America Beautiful

Volunteer Spotlight

Charles Whitsell
Keep Stockwell Beautiful, Inc.
Stockwell, IN

For the past nine years, Charles has been the "go to guy" for Keep Stockwell Beautiful (KSB).  He started with KSB before it was an official Keep America Beautiful (KAB) Affiliate in 2005.  Charles runs the Bulky Trash recycling program and is the "enforcer" in our town of 400 people.  He is always willing to help out and is a constant reminder to all of us that no matter what we all matter and can help.  Charles had a stroke several years ago and he has never slowed down because of it!  He has attended three KAB National Conferences and is a key figure for KSB – he has received three National Awards.  There are no words that can express the gratitude and appreciation KSA has for Charles, he is awesome.  Charles retired from the KSB board this past July, but he will continue to run the recycling and Bulky Trash programs.


Keep America Beautiful has a strong national network of affiliates and partners that work with millions of volunteers who take action in their communities.
