SIWA Volunteer of the Year began in 2012, at SIWA’s 50th anniversary, to acknowledge the efforts of our volunteers. We asked members to nominate a SIWA volunteer who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in the past year.

Johanna accepts her award at the 2018 SIWA Charity Gala: Carnaval do Brasil

This year, our members selected Johanna Widmann, current Tours & Interest Groups Chair and incoming Vice President of Operations.

As SIWA President Anne Choe said, when she presented the award to Johanna at the 2018 SIWA Charity Gala, Johanna truly embodies the spirit of “enhancing lives through friendship, enrichment and charity.”

Congratulations, Johanna, on your well deserved award!
