Q: What activities have you been involved in for the WWBA?
A: I have been involved with the Membership Committee since I joined the Association. In my first year in the Association, I was also involved with the Education Committee during which time I helped recruit speakers for a lecture on December 5th 2013 on “How children with disabilities are served abroad.” The speakers were Liz Peresltein, founder of School Choice International, and Karen Holloman, Head of the Research Department at the time.

March: Women’s History MonthFor over a quarter century now, March has been set aside as a time to celebrate women’s conviction and courage in the struggle for equal rights. In 1980, then-president Jimmy Carter started the wheels turning on a Women’s History celebration as he noted:“From the first settlers who came to our shores, from the first American Indian families who befriended them, men and women have worked together to build this nation. Too often the women were unsung and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed. But the achievements, leadership, courage, strength and love of the women who built America was as vital as that of the men whose names we know so well.”
