Leading the Way

Barstow Mayor Julie Hackbarth-McIntyre shares a laugh with 2916th Aviation Brigade Command Sgt. Maj. Will Elliott, who presented her with his team jersey to thank her for speaking at Fort Irwin’s Women’s Equality Day event at Sandy Basin Community Center, Aug. 21. The event featured a video of leaders of the gender equality movement from the 1960’s reflecting on their formative experiences and leading the way towards expanding opportunities for women in the United States. Hackbarth-McIntyre shared her thoughts about growing up a tomboy in the 1960’s in Barstow, having a mother and father who encouraged her to be whatever she chose to be – a responsibility she feels wholeheartedly when girls working at her Del Taco restaurant ask her for advice. The Barstow newspaper “Desert Dispatch” of Aug. 23 reported that she was recently honored by U.S. Congressman Paul Cook as a 2013 Women of Distinction awardee.
