Eileen Brady – “She is an inspiration to all of us! I salute her and her family for the high standards they have set for all of us.
Eileen Brady’s passion for the people and animals of her hometown has resulted in many local contributions. Eileen has been a volunteer for 13 years with the Clinton County Humane Society and a Wilmington Public Library Board Member since 2019. She started the Humane Society’s Engraved Brick Fundraiser in 2006 and continues to be used today to help raise funds for the shelter. . She continues to photograph available animals, assist with adoptions, and give educational presentations throughout the county as a volunteer on behalf of the Society. Having been active and a member of the Clinton County Reads Board of Directors for 12 years, education and youth literacy are very important to Eileen.
She is a published author, wife and mother. In her spare time, Eileen works tirelessly to beautify Clinton County by renovating run-down properties. To date, she has completed 14 houses. Eileen is passionate about community and in January 2007 she wrote an article for the newspaper about the launch of a holiday light parade in downtown Wilmington. In November of that year, she was on the organizing committee for what would become Wilmington’s Hometown Holidazzle Parade.
Eileen’s impact on the local community may focus on a teenage audience, but it’s well known that young people are our future. Her influence and efforts to make Clinton County a great place to grow up and live are just a few examples of why she conveys the qualities of an exceptional Clinton County woman.
