Editor's note: This is the second of four stories featuring female members of Team Fairchild who have been recognized during Women's History Month as outstanding contributors to the local community.

Mary Croston, a 4th grade teacher at Michael Anderson Elementary School, was selected as one of four Fairchild Air Force Base Women to be recognized during Women's History Month.

Croston was selected based on her passion for volunteering in her community. For the last two years, she has devoted time in a local restaurant serving free meals to women and children.

She has also volunteered for the Wishing Star Foundation for six years. Additionally, Croston is on the "Taste Spokane" committee, which holds a fundraising event each year for the purpose of raising money to grant wishes to children with serious medical conditions.

Croston was an Adjutant General Officer for eight years in the U.S. Army Reserves from 1984-1992, where a majority of that time she was assigned to a postal unit in Wenatchee, Wash.

Croston has demonstrated many qualities of being a great role model for women and all Airmen.
