Engagement & Ops. Manager
Jungwon was born in South Korea but has claimed Lubbock as her home for the last half of her life. She went to middle and high school in Lubbock and then decided to stay and attendTexas Tech University. Jungwon graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology in May 2015 and a Master of Business Administration from Rawls College of Business in May 2016. During her high school years, Jungwon was a member of the Volunteer Center’s United Way Youth Division program. Volunteering has always been a big part of her life since she was a child, but she and her family were less involved in volunteering once they moved to America. However, the Volunteer Center helped Jungwon revive her passion for volunteering through United Way Youth Division.
As Engagement Coordinator, Jungwon loves working with students and teachers. She wants to provide opportunities in Lubbock for youth to have valuable experiences and opportunities and gain great memories as she did in the past as a United Way Youth Division member.
Jungwon enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, running, and bike riding. During the summer, she frequently visits Palo Duro Canyon with friends and family. During cold weather, she likes to stay under a blanket at home and read books or watch movies.
