Proposed New Members:
I am proposing Jocelyn Bonner for membership in Southtowne Rotary. Jacelyn grew up in Hampton, Virginia, and attended Spelman College in Atlanta, and Duke Medical School. She trained in psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh.
She is an Army veteran who served at a hospital in Germany before settling in the Pacific Northwest, first in Seattle then in Eugene where she has been since 1995.
She did a combination of community mental health care and private practice until her retirement in 2021.
She is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and a number of other professional organizations. She is a volunteer consultant for a mental health program in Benin, West Africa. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, walking, gardening, and nutrition; she and her husband like to go camping and traveling.
Any comments or thought about Jacelyn Bonner should be directed to President Kathi or a member of the board by May 27th.
