People of the City
Julie and Jim Penny
Married for more than 15 years, Julie and Jim Penny continue to delight Tucson residents with their marital bliss. As prominent figures in the community—Jim is a lawyer while Julie owns several local boutiques—the couple regularly participated in various charitable organizations including the Boys & Girls Club where they both sit on the board.
As Tucson’s very own Carrie Bradshaw, Camerone Parker is by every definition a true fashionista. Her aptly titled radio show “Fashionista Report”, which can be heard every Wednesday on the Mountain 92.9, delivers fashion advice along with Parker’s trademark wit. Her dedication to style is rivaled only by her active involvement in many of Tucson’s philanthropic societies.
Best High School Principal
As principal of Canyon del Oro High School, Marcia Volpe is always in demand. Whether it be mingling with students or working with staff on improvements, her love of education provides Canyon del Oro with a fresh perspective on learning. Loved by parents, teachers and students a like, Volpe’s enthusiasm and commitment continue to impress.
Most Influential Man
As the voice of Wildcat Basketball, Dave Sitton’s extensive experience with UA athletics is unrivaled by most. This rugby aficionado’s achievements even include coaching the University’s own rugby team at 22. A team player on and off the field, Sitton helps groups like Steele Memorial Children’s Research Foundation and the Tucson Pops Orchestra.
