The Board of Directors of the Mattoon Area Community Foundation recently appointed Cara C. Honselman to a three year term on the board.

Ms Honselman is an Associate Attorney at Hefner, Eberspacher, Tapelle, Armstrong, Grove, Jones & Britton LLC. She is a resident of Charleston, a graduate of Casey-Westfield High School, Millikin University in undergraduate studies and Southern Illinois University School of Law.

Ms Honselman double majored in Accounting and International Business Management at Millikin and played volleyball all four years she attended the university.
