Janet Skibinski

Quota International of Bakersfield, CA

A member of Quota since January 1994, Janet Skibinski is currently recording and corresponding secretary as well as service chairman. She has also held the offices of recording secretary, second vice president, and director. Janet, however, says her favorite job in Quota is her chairmanship of the Silent Auction, which is held during the Annual Casino Night fund-raiser. She loves seeing the resulting scholarships for deaf and hard-of-hearing people. “That really makes me feel good to know that we can help someone with barriers reach a goal,” comments Janet. Also active in the local community, Janet has been a Cub Scout den mother; an American Red Cross volunteer; president of the local American Association of Women in Community Colleges; and president and secretary of the Kern Island ArtsFest Board. She serves on the board of directors for the Americorp program and the Independent Living Center of Kern County. Janet puts 110 percent into Quota projects, and, if you look closely, you will probably find her husband and two daughters working right alongside her.
