In March, before all of our lives changed, we decided to focus our next three years of Community Impact on Education and Literacy. If you were at that meeting, you’ll recall the excitement about the opportunities we could explore regarding mentorship and empowering young women. These opportunities are even more relevant today as many in our community transition to remote learning, working from home, and the economic impacts of a pandemic.
As we’ve done for 92 years, the Junior League of High Point will work together and with our community partners to tackle these needs. As trained volunteers, we will be champions for education and literacy. We’ll provide the brains, the muscles, the heart, and sometimes the checkbook, but most importantly, the voice to ensure everyone in our community has access to equitable education.
The year ahead will be different, there’s no way around it. But this gives us an opportunity to be creative and purposeful in the way we develop programs as we learn to connect in ways we never thought possible. None of this would be possible without you – our members. It is your commitment, your value of service above self, and your desire to make a positive impact that allows the Junior League to thrive. I am honored and humbled to represent this group of women.
