“…, I was honored to be installed as the President of the Woman’s Club of El Paso.  This is an amazing opportunity to work for my historic organization, founded in 1894 and whose clubhouse is the oldest clubhouse built in the state of Texas for women (1916). My mission is to celebrate the women of the Pass, the women of the past and the women who will continue to blaze trails now and in the future. Humbled and excited, it’s the old Sara Jeanne on a new journey!”
