We have some sad news to share with you. Early this morning our devoted, beloved Carla Williams, PSCFA’s long-time treasurer, was tragically and senselessly killed. Carla has been a devoted union leader throughout her long career at PSC, but more importantly, she has always been a kind, compassionate colleague, friend, and professor. Everyone who met Carla loved her instantly. She generously gave her time and resources to make PSC a better place for all. She radiated kindness and positivity. Without Carla in it, the world is a less kind place now.
We know this is a lot to process. PSCFA is working on plans to honor Carla’s remarkable life and career, and I’ll share those plans just as soon as they are finalized.
In the meantime, if you need to speak with a professional counselor about this tragedy, please consider using AFT’s free trauma counseling. Information on how to access this member service is provided below
Please keep Carla’s family in your thoughts. We’ll share more information about arrangements as they become available.
We miss you, Carla.
