Tamara Paltin shows that ‘one person really can make a huge difference’

Here’s a writeup in the Lahaina News.


John Carty shared the “People Who Made a Difference Award” with Paltin in 2007. He also serves on the SHC executive committee as secretary.

Carty speaks highly of Paltin’s qualities and skills.

“Her ego is out of the picture,” he said.

“One of Tamara’s defining traits is her humility. It is amazing what she accomplishes while not taking credit for it. She understands clearly that the mission is more important than any individual recognition.

“Tamara also has an amazing positivity,” Carty continued, “that I think you see more of in our young leaders. Instead of concentrating on conflicts or disappointing news, she keeps our canoe pointed towards our goal.”
