Congrats to Vice Chair Melissa Dunbar!

Please join us in congratulating our new Vice Chair of SENCo, Melissa Dunbar!

She was elected by unanimous vote at our July general meeting, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have her join SENCo’s executive board.

Melissa is a teacher in the Tacoma School District, a State Committee Member of the 29th LD, a tireless activist for social justice, and was even chosen as the Sanders delegate to the National Convention this year.

We are so grateful to have the benefit of her vast expertise and energy on SENCo!

Thank You Tony Caldwell!

This week we’re shouting out members who serve on the SENCo board. As Chair, it is a honor to work with such a great team, and it is my pleasure to share a little about them.

These amazing folks not only volunteer their time for SENCo, but also carry this spirit of civic-mindedness and public service into other areas of their lives. In all their work and wonderful volunteer efforts, these folks are awesome. We appreciate them!
