Serve Idaho Commission Elects New Leadership

Jesse Maldonado of Lewiston and Colleen Schowalter of Boise were elected to serve as the 2018 chair and vice chair of Serve Idaho, the Governor’s Commission on Service and Volunteerism. 

Chair Jesse Maldonado is a recent graduate of Lewis-Clark State College. He is currently a Lewiston City Council member and serves as the vice chair of the Idaho State Democratic Party.

Vice Chair Colleen Schowalter is the volunteer services coordinator and studio manager for the Idaho Commission for Libraries. She currently serves as the public affairs deputy officer for the Boise Veterans Day Parade committee. She previously served for two years as an AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteer in Service to America) and VISTA Leader with the Idaho National Guard Family Programs and the Idaho Foodbank. 

“Both Mr. Maldonado and Ms. Schowalter bring an enthusiasm for service that is second to none,” said Program Manager Renee Bade. “We are extremely fortunate to have both of them serve as leaders of the commission this year.”


Serve Idaho, a division of the Idaho Department of Labor, encourages voluntary public service and volunteerism throughout the state. The Serve Idaho Commission is funded in part by the Corporation for National and Community Service and the Idaho Department of Labor.
