With the start of a new year, four new board members joined the Domestic and Sexual Violence Services (DSVS) Board of Directors. They include Suzi Pendergraft, Patty Wisneski, JoAnne Coolidge, and George Clow.
Pendergraft was one of the first DSVS volunteer advocates to be trained almost 20 years ago. Though she’s no longer a helpline volunteer, Pendergraft has remained a committed supporter of DSVS. Wisneski has had an interest in the mission of DSVS for several years and has decades of experience in drug and alcohol addiction counseling. She’s since retired and is a resident of the Luther area. Coolidge is a longtime volunteer and supporter of DSVS and is a retired elementary school teacher. She lives in Red lodge with her husband Dan who is a volunteer for the DSVS Home Again used furniture thrift store. Clow is a retiree whose career included many years in FBI leadership and finance with VISA Corporation. He’s a volunteer EMT in Red Lodge and has been a supporter of DSVS for many years.
The four new board members are replacing outgoing board members Jack Exley, Sue McQuillan, Lea Hegge, and Bill Bullock. Each new board member will serve a two-year term but may continue their service for multiple terms. For more information about DSVS, go to www.dsvsmontana.org.
