Nancy Roodberg, LWV of the Fairfax Area Co-President
LWVFA Co-President, Nancy Roodberg (Center) with High School Voter Registration Volunteers Donald Craig and Anne Carson
Although Nancy focused her education on business, BA from Duke Magna Cum Laude followed by a Master’s Degree in International Management, she has spent most of her adult life as a volunteer. She has been very active in the parent teacher association and various parent-led committees at each school attended by her two children from pre-K through High School. Perhaps that is why she has so enjoyed her work with the LWV-FA’s high school voter registration and education efforts. This program is a shining example of the positive role the League plays in empowering citizens to use their vote as their voice thereby strengthening our democracy. Nancy’s other big volunteer work involves directing a 501c3, Reboot Reuse Rebuild, that provides computers to learning centers serving at risk youth in the DC metro area.
