A former journalist, Carole was lifestyles editor of The Huntsville News from 1990-96. Since retiring, she has devoted her time to volunteer service. In addition to being a founding member of our hospital board, Carole chairs both the Huntsville Museum of Art Board of Directors and the board of the National Panhellenic Conference – an organization that works to improve the sorority experience on college campuses nationwide. (Carole is an alumnae of the Alpha Omicron Pi chapter at the University of Alabama).
Carole’s roots in our community run deep.
Her late father, John Jurenko, was a co-founder of Adtran, one of Huntsville’s biggest high-tech firms. Carole and her husband, Buddy Jones, have lived in Madison since 1984. They are the proud parents of daughter Laura Plummer, who is married to Tommy Plummer, and the proud grandparents of Sadie and Kennedy Plummer.
I rely on Carole and the other Madison Hospital Board volunteers to help keep me focused on the big picture – to make sure that our plans for the future match up with the community’s changing needs.
“Serving on the board is my way of giving back to Madison Hospital – to ensure the health needs of our community are met through quality services and facilities,” Carole says. “It gives me great joy to hear the positive experiences and individualized care that patients receive from the Madison Hospital staff.”
I am truly thankful for the guidance of Carole and the rest of our Madison Hospital Board members. Their commitment of time, energy and expertise helps make your community hospital the best it can be.
