Department President

Teresa Isensee 2014-2015

Teresa Isensee was elected as Wisconsin’s American Legion Auxiliary President at the 94th Department Convention in Appleton, Wisconsin, on July 20, 2014. 

              In 1990 when my bowling teammates asked if I was eligible for the American Legion Auxiliary, so that I could bowl with them in the Auxiliary Tournament, I went home and asked my husband if he belonged to The American Legion.  Within the next few days we were both members of Walter-Nelson Post/Unit 326 in Boyd. 

With a few simple words “Are you eligible to join the American Legion Auxiliary” my journey began and on Sunday July 20, 2014 at the 94th Department Convention in Appleton I was installed as your 2014-2015 Department President.

Our family joined under the Service of my husband, Steve, a Vietnam Veteran, and together we have three daughters, one son, six granddaughters, and three grandsons, all members of the American Legion Family.

I am currently employed by National Presto Industries in Eau Claire as an IT Project Manager/Programmer Analyst.  In addition to my volunteer hours to the American Legion Family, I’m an active member of the Boyd Lions Club, served eight years as a Village of Boyd Trustee, and a Past Chairperson of the Chippewa County Economic Development Corporation.

At the age of three I started dance lessons which continued until the age of 16, in additional to dance I also took guitar lessons, played guitar and sang in a church group, performed in school plays, and was in the High School Glee Club and Choir.  My love of music, singing and dancing has been passed down through our family, and whenever possible we celebrate with singing a little karaoke, singing to our favorite songs in the car, and dancing to the Wii Dance Party.

In keeping with the Family Tradition I have chosen the theme of  “Raise your Voice in Song for our Veterans”, and my special project will be Music Therapy programs at Veterans VA Facilities, and local competitions for the Creative Arts Festivals in the Department of Wisconsin.

I hope to see many of you at the Fall Informational Forum September 19-20 in Eau Claire, and at our traveling Concert Tours – Mini Informational Workshop throughout the State.  Watch the Wisconsin and Unit Mailings for additional information. 

For God and Country,

Teresa Isensee
