Community Hero Spotlight: Zona Butler

Each year Nantucket Bank asks members of the community to nominate local individuals and organizations that have had major impacts on their communities. The top 12 heroes are selected by a committee and featured in the following year’s Community Hero Calendar.


Zona Butler


October 2017 Community Hero

Zona Butler has been involved with the islands’ youth for more than 20 years, teaching them “the value of valuing themselves.” Zona began her work with students as a Girl Scout leader and soon after joined the Nantucket Boys & Girls Club board of directors. Zona is an elected member of the Nantucket School Committee, a member of the Nantucket Education Trust, a volunteer with Nantucket Food Pantry and also serves on the board of the Robin Harvey Foundation.


Each Community Hero is awarded $1,000 toward a charity of their choice. Zona will be sending her $1,000 donation from the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation to the Nantucket Education Trust.


Thank you, Zona, for your longtime commitment to the islands’ youth.
