Education is important to Schwab, who earned her CGR in 1997 and CAPS in 2003. She later became a CGR and CAPS instructor.
Schwarb also is involved in her community and is a 25-year member of the honorary educational society, Alpha Delta Kappa (ADK), where she has held many leadership positions, including scholarship chair.

Who Will Be the Next Remodelor™ of the Month?
The Remodelor™ of the Month (this link is accessible to Remodelors™ Council members only) award program is underway. Don't miss your opportunity to be named the Remodelor™ of the Month.
The program groups local councils from different states into designated months. There will be two “wild card” months that will allow the council’s members-at-large to participate in the program. A winner will be chosen each month and that winner will then be automatically included in the nominations for the Remodelor™ of the Year award.
This is a great opportunity for local councils and members to get involved and submit their “best of the best” members to compete with other councils. The national Remodelors™ Council will send out press releases and highlight each winner in ReNews, the Remodelors™ Council e-newsletter.
