Carole Able Holestine

A love of Connors; A love of Service.

Carole Able Holestine loved Connors State College. During her freshman year (1954-55) she was a member of the Art Club, the Glee Club Ensemble, a reporter for Russell Belles (a freshman girls club), the Vice President of the Homemakers Club, and the Devotional Chair of the Young Women’s Auxiliary. In her sophomore year, she added Tri Psi, Pep Club, Square Dance Club, and Girls Trio to her impressive list of activities and leadership roles. 

After college, Carole raised a family while directing and teaching preschool at Sandusky Avenue Christian Church in Tulsa. She was active as a Girl Scout Leader and a member of the PTA. Carole’s love of Connors continued, and she became a member of the Board of Directors of the Connors State College Alumi Association. Carole served in multiple positions including several years as President. Carole Able Holestine passed away in May at the age of 78. Her husband, Robert, said “her happiest days were at Connors, she loved Connors and the good friends she met there.” The current Board of Directors credits Carole and her work for the success of the CSC Alumni and Friends Association and the Annuals Reunions over the past several years.
