BENEFITING: Kingsville Public Library
Please join us in honoring Oleta and Joel Swaney for their individual and combined commitment to continuous learning. This enduring fund endowed by the children of Joel & Oleta (Baber) Swaney will allow their passion for learning to continue through the After School Discovery Program at the Kingsville Public Library.
Joel’s curiosity drove a lifelong pursuit of hands-on learning. He never ceased trying new things, developing many technical and artistic skills in his later years. His enthusiasm inspired his children to pursue their individual interests. Oleta is a lifelong learner as well, but she also had a professional interest in education, dedicating her life to a career of teaching at the elementary school level. She has positively influenced literally thousands of Ashtabula County children. Oleta remains committed to childhood education, and volunteers at the Kingsville Library to support its work. This enduring fund will allow Oleta and Joel's passion for learning to continue for future generations of Kingsville area children.
