Gibson Selected by Local GFWC as 2016 LEADS Representative
GFWC Warren Woman’s Club member, Judy Gibson, was selected by her local club and GFWC of Arkansas as the state’s 2016 LEADS representative. Judy attended the Leadership Education and Development Seminar in Baltimore, Maryland in late June along with representatives from all 50 states
The LEADS program is intended to identify GFWC members at the grassroots level who have potential and the desire to assume leadership positions in GFWC beyond their club.
Each state federation selects one LEADS attendee annually. The candidate must demonstrate leadership capabilities as an active member of a local club, be committed to the Federation and have an understanding of the GFWC mission of community service.
Judy became a member of GFWC Warren Woman’s Club in 2015 and has been actively involved in activities of the organization. She will serve as Warren Woman’s Club Education Chair during the 2016-2017 administration along with several other committee assignments.
In 2014, Judy received the prestigious Avima Lombard Award. This award, in memory of the founder of the International HIPPY program, is presented every 2 years to the HIPPY staff person whose professional service has made a significant contribution to HIPPY and to improving the lives of young children and their families.

The Gibsons attend the Rock Springs Methodist Church where Judy serves as adult Sunday School teacher and pianist for the church. After 43 distinguished years in the field of Education, Judy retired in 2014.
