In retirement, Dawn continues legislative/FCPE advocacy in WOEA-R. She is extremely involved in her community, particularly the Democratic Party and her church. Those who have had any association with Wanda Adams and Dawn Wojcik are better human beings because of the impact made by these two amazing individuals.
I feel very fortunate to have served with Dawn when she was WOEA President and I was vice president. More importantly, she is my forever friend!!"
