History

In 2017, our chapter lost one of its staunchest supporters, Jane Morris. Jane served in various leadership roles for the City of Phoenix, including as Director of the Mesa Gateway Airport. Though Jane was a very busy woman, who was always embarking on her next big challenge, she always made time to support WTS and was an advocate for mentoring. Through direct one-on-one mentorship as well as the educational programs she presented, Jane inspired everyone whose life she touched. We dedicated the WTS Mentorship Program in Jane’s honor as a reminder of what true mentorship and leadership inspires.
