Volunteer Spotlight February 2019

Feb 01, 2019

Steven Schoenly has lived in South Riding since 2006. He moved here after retiring from his career as a university professor, in order to be close to family and to help with grandchild care.  South Riding is a great place for families and raising children
(outstanding public schools!), but it is also a great place for retirement, with its diverse population and nearby stores, restaurants, and other facilities.

Steve is a member of the South Riding Neighborhood Watch committee. He joined the committee in 2008 to help support South Riding as the safe, pleasant, and friendly place it has always been, and as a way of keeping up with the news about what is going on in the area. He enjoys reading (Civil War history is a favorite), hiking, biking, and going to the new Dulles South rec center (a great addition to our community). He also enjoys exciting retirement activities like crossword puzzles and playing chess.

Steve serves as a Loudoun County election officer. Several years ago, he helped to open the precinct at Liberty ES as chief election officer there, and at the last election he served as chief EO to open the new Buffalo Trail ES precinct. He encourages everyone to vote in all elections, including primaries and local/state elections, not just the national ones. Vote in the elections run by the South Riding Board of Directors too!
