Zonta welcomes back Betty Hudson, a former president of our club (1990-1991). Betty is like most of us, she "overcommitted" and had to take a break, but now she is looking forward to making a contribution wherever she is needed. Welcome, Betty.
Betty is Executive Assistant to the Director of the Church Discipleship Ministry of the Navigators here in Colorado Springs. She has been with the Navigators since 1993. Betty enjoys gardening and reading, and enjoys learning new things and helping others. She enjoys upbeat, reflective, caring people who love their work.
To Betty, Zonta means real women in the real world working to make it a better place little by little...a place where she can use her skills and time to help other women, while gaining new skills and ideas from other Zonta members. She enjoys helping others reach their full potential. Betty says Zonta helps her broaden her horizons to develop new interests and learn about life. Her friends call her "friendly, creative, with good follow through, and dependable."
Betty wants to make her life count, to be positive and caring when helping others and to keep learning. Betty was Tennessee Young Mother of the Year in 1978, but experienced some setbacks and came to Colorado to start anew. With her grandchildren so far away, Betty and her husband of 37 years, Marvin, now have a black and tan dachsund that they give all their attentions to (i.e. spoil).
Her main influences in her life were her father, grandmother and, now, friends who live out what they say they believe. Betty, those who don't know you already look forward to getting to know you better and working with you. Welcome.
