Our Board of Directors unanimously elected Colonel Kim Olson as SDI Board Chair at their final meeting of last year. Col. Olson was one of the first female fighter pilots in the United States Air Force. She also was serving in the Pentagon on 9/11.
Following an honorary retirement, Col. Olson founded Grace After Fire, a nonprofit supporting women transitioning from military service back to civilian life. Kim's tireless advocacy for Texans earned her induction into the Texas Women’s Hall of Fame in 2014.
We are excited about Kim’s powerful leadership and the energy she brings to the organization, as well as Sheri’s new high profile role leading the Service Dog industry in North America. This would not be possible without your continued support of what we do here at SDI. For that, we are grateful.
