Member Stories

Member Stories is a campaign highlighting individual Junior League Members who have used their League experience to make an impact in their local community. We know that leadership isn’t just the job you have or the role you’re in, and that Junior League women lead every day, in all kinds of roles. Our Members bring The Junior League Mission to life, and we are pleased to shine light on their unique and inspiring stories.

To view nationally and internationally recognized Members, view the Public Figures page.
