Sharon Popp and husband Dean are retired; he from the Economics Department and campus administration at SDSU; and she from special education and special education administrative roles throughout the county. They travel, garden, follow Aztec, Duck, Charger and most recently San Antonio Spurs sports teams. They each volunteer in numerous capacities, the favorite being in a kindergarten classroom, 4-5 mornings per week, in which their daughter, Amy, is the teacher.
Neighbor, Mike Mazaika, introduced Sharon to the Villa Musica Chorus in January of 2011. It was love at first chord. She continues with the chorus as well as weekly voice lessons.
Sharon’s reason for wanting to participate on the Villa Musica Board is to support Villa Musica’s mission to provide access to music to children in communities where those opportunities aren’t available or are very limited.
