Just Judy


Judy Baar Topinka started out her life much the same as any child today, but through her education and persistence, she found herself on a history-making path, impacting the lives of millions of Illinois residents along her way. Follow Judy as she grows from a child, to a young adult, to a wife and mother, and finally to a state public servant, making her way from the Illinois House of Representatives all the way to the office of Illinois Comptroller.

Throughout her life, Judy’s experiences shaped who she was and what she stood for—heritage, leadership, public service, civic duty, tolerance, life-long learning, family values, honesty, respect, courage, and wisdom. Just Judy: A Citizen and Leader for Illinois is a wonderful resource for 6th grade and up, with over 100 interactive classroom activities, critical thinking and self-reflection essay questions, and research prompts to fuel additional learning based on the same principles that are covered throughout Judy's story.

Judy Baar Topinka continues to inspire us all and, through the voice of her son, encourages us to follow in her footsteps to support our local communities, actively participate in our civic duties, respect one another, take pride in our own unique heritage, and embrace life-long learning.
