Engaged, Diverse, Ready for Service
Julia is the event co-ordinator for SSWO. She works hard every month attempting to line up someone to come speak to SSWO members at the monthly meetings and then she attempts to arrange a related service event. This is not an easy thing to do especially in times of COVID. She has put in a lot of extra hours to make this year a meaningful one for SSWO members.
