FACES Memorializes Carl E. Cookson

Carl E. Cookson was deeply invested in seeing positive transformation in his community. Over his lifetime he dedicated his time, talent and resources to several organizations, including Silicon Valley FACES. For 30 years Carl served on the FACES Board of Directors, pouring his heart into this organization.
