Washington Women’s Employment & Education (WWEE) Board of Directors recently announced the election of its newest members: Alice Aumoeualogo, Susan Gordon, Bonnie Sellen, and Wanda Wilder. These new members will help to provide guidance, resource development and strategic direction to the organization as it continues its mission, assisting low-income individuals to gain the skills, the knowledge and the courage to become self-supporting.
Susan Gordon is a former journalist who most recently wrote about environmental issues for The News Tribune in Tacoma, where she worked for nearly 25 years. Gordon currently works as a paraeducator for the Clover Park School District in Lakewood. She joins the Board of Directors because she wants to help build financial support and ensure the agency’s continued success. “WWEE responds to the needs of folks suffering financial hardship not only through useful training, but by helping people discover the courage and will to succeed,” Gordon says.
