FWR Legacy of Leadership

The Far West Region has been a vibrant and active contributor to the vast history of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. Three National Presidents have come from our region including the 6th, Ruth Brown Howard, (1958-1962) from the San Francisco Chapter, 12th, Dr. Ramona Arnold (1982-1986) from the South Los Angeles Chapter,  and the 19th, Ida La Brie Younge (2002-2004) from the Pomona Area Chapter. Dr. Sheryl Thomas, the 7th national president, appointed the first Father’s Auxiliary Chair, Fitzroy L. Younge, Jr., legacy from the Oakland Bay Area Chapter (and husband of Ida L. Younge), in 1997.
