Judy Schultz - Volunteer at The Paramount Theater

Judy Schultz – Charlottesville

Tell us about your volunteer activities.
I enjoy volunteering at the Paramount Theater in several different ways.  In addition to helping with events, it’s also fun to conduct public tours of the theater.  I also coordinate the training program for volunteers.

Since moving to Charlottesville ten years ago, I’ve also been a board member of my condo HOA , a board member of the Newcomers Club of Greater Charlottesville and a member of 100+ Women Who Care.

What inspires you to volunteer?
In the 1980s, I was Director of Volunteer Services at a hospital in Lubbock, Texas.  I experienced and appreciated “first hand” the positive impact of volunteers giving their time and talents to their community.   Volunteering is also a great way to meet new friends.

If your volunteer work could make one long-lasting change, what would you want it to be?
I’ve always tried to instill in my daughter the importance of volunteerism.  I know she will encourage her sons to do the same.

What is a little-known fact about you?
In the 1950s I was one of the first “candy striper” volunteers at a hospital in Lincoln, Nebraska.

What brought you to Charlottesville?
When my husband and I retired in 2006, we moved to Charlottesville in order to be close to our daughter, son-in-law and grandsons.
