First Vice President
Deborah Schmieding is a member of the Athens League. She recently retired from a 39-year career supporting kids and adults with developmental disabilities in Athens and Washington Counties. Her passion to advance disability issues did not end at that time, and she continues to find home for this effort with the League. Voting access is very important to her, and she is proud to be affiliated with the premier organization protecting this right for all citizens. She has served on the LWVO board from 2004 to 2011 and again in 2016-2017. Deborah has an undergraduate degree in Communication from Michigan State University, a Masters of Public Administration from Ohio University.
