St. Louisan Mary Tillman has been selected the new AARP Missouri State Coordinator for the Driver Safety Program (DSP). Appointed at the onset of this year, Tillman joined the DSP as an instructor in 2006 and was designated a Zone Coordinator shortly thereafter.
Tillman has instructed more than 40 classes over the last three years and is excited about the possibilities of introducing older drivers to the new Smart Driver Course. “I also look forward to recruiting new instructors to reach class participants,” Tillman said.
A licensed and ordained evangelist, Tillman hosts a six-hour Sunday morning gospel radio program on St. Louis radio station WFUN 95.5 FM when she is not giving DSP instruction.
Tillman will be joined in managing AARP Missouri’s DSP by Georgia Wilmarth of Kansas City who has been an instructor since 2008. “I am also anxious to teach the new Smart Driver Course and I want everyone to know that I am available to provide assistance at any time,” Wilmarth said.
Welcome to these two new leaders who are seeking new instructors across the state. To learn more about DSP and to volunteer, visit www.aarp.org/drive.
