In the midst of her activities, Donna Garner has tried not to neglect her family; and she and her husband celebrated their 50th anniversary this last summer. They have two sons, two daughters-in-law, and five grandchildren (freshman in college through third grader).
Her passion, so stated, “is to make sure that this and future generations appreciate and uphold the American dream so that all of the children and youth of America will have the opportunity to be successful.” Her dedication has made a difference! Indeed, a true Upton winner!“
