Please join me in congratulating and thanking our newest members of the Executive Board, Debi Schoonover and Jim McNelly!
Debi, a proud WPEA member and employee of Walla Walla Community College, has recently been confirmed to the Executive Board as the Vice President of District 9. She has hit the ground running diving into big projects such as the new suggested Bylaws revisions, approval of the 2023-24 budget, and has accepted the open seat on the Scholarship Committee for 2023-24. She has been a productive and positive influence on the Executive Board and we know that her representation for District 9 will be a great benefit to the membership.
Jim McNelly is an employee of the Washington Military Department and is already a leader at the WPEA as he serves as a Steward for his bargaining unit. He has been an invaluable asset on the General Government Bargaining Team this past session, and at our last meeting, the Executive Board was proud to confirm Jim to his new position as the Vice President of District 5.
Thank you to both Jim and Debi and congratulations. We know you will do great work in your news roles as Vice Presidents on the WPEA Executive Board!
