Leadership and Service

A life of service–Jan Shabro

Jan Shabro

Along with Kevin Wimsett '96 and Calvin Goings '96—who were featured in the last edition of Scene, "Lives of Service,"—Jan Shabro '64, '88 serves on the Pierce County Council. She was first elected in 1994.

"When I was at PLU, little did I imagine I would be entering the political scene," Shabro said. "My public service in this job has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life."

Shabro got both of her degrees—a B.A. and M.A. in education—from PLU. Prior to being elected to the council, Jan worked for the Washington State House of Representatives and the Office of the Secretary of State, was a public school teacher and an instructor for the Boeing Company.

Because of term limits, Shabro leaves at the end of this term. She will seek a seat in the Washington State Legislature. She has been a Pierce County resident for more than 35 years.
