This Women’s History Month we’re sitting down with female leaders from around the state to talk about their path to success, what inspires them and how others could follow in their footsteps. In this episode of Building Utah we sit down with South Jordan City Mayor Dawn Ramsey.
Dawn Ramsey’s passion for the City of South Jordan stems from her years of service in the community. During her service on the Utah PTA Board of Directors and as Region Director over all schools in the Jordan District, she has spent literally thousands of hours with parents, teachers, administrators, legislators and state organizations advocating for the health, safety, and educational opportunities of every child across the state.
She currently serves on the Executive Committee of the Jordan Education Foundation Board of Directors, working to engage the community and local business leaders to help bridge the gap in education funding, providing resources that enhance educational experiences, strengthen students, and fuel success in Jordan School District. She has also served on the Boards of several nonprofits with nearly 20 years of experience managing and leading large organizations.
A little bit about Women’s History Month:
The national celebration began in 1981, when Congress authorized the President of the United States to proclaim the week beginning in March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” After turning it into a full month in 1987, in 1988 Congress passed additional resolutions giving the power to the President to sign off on every March being designated as “Women’s History Month.”
