Senior housing building to be named for Brooks

October 16, 2009

A new senior housing building planned by the Hagerstown Housing Authority will be named the C.W. Brooks building in honor of the Authority's chairwoman, Carolyn W. Brooks, and her grandfather, T. Andrew Williams, the Authority said in a news release.

The 60-unit building is scheduled to be built within the next two years and was originally labeled Mills Station, the press release said.

The Authority was awarded a $9.88 million competitive grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the building, the Authority said.

Brooks has served on the Authority Board for more than 20 years and has been chair since 1992. Her grandfather served on the board from December 1975 to November 1989.

Authority executive director Ted Shankle said formal recognition of Brooks and her grandfather was long overdue, noting that Brooks' stewardship and advocacy was instrumental in the Authority's success in winning numerous national awards.
