President’s Message for 2021
Welcome to the Junior League of Midland, Inc.! We are excited you stopped by our page to learn more about our organization, and our efforts to make a lasting change in the Midland community.
The Junior League of Midland, Inc. is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and impacting the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. For over seven decades, the Junior League has been a premier training organization for women in Midland. Our League has played a role in developing institutions in Midland such as the Museum of the Southwest, Teen Court, Rays of Hope, and many others.
The provisional and active members of the Junior League are proud to be tackling issues within the focus area of education. Our current active community programs include: Suits with Skills, Reading Olympics, I.M.P.A.C.T, Volunteers in Midland, and Pink Pantry.
As a League, our main priority has continued to not only be our community, but also our member’s fulfillment as they serve the needs of Midland. This has inspired our theme for this the 2021-2022 League year: Lead with Grace. This last year has challenged us all on a personal level to some degree. Many of our members or their families have been impacted by COVID personally. The industry that is the main fuel to our city’s economy has gone through an unprecedented downturn and has continued to be a rollercoaster. Many of us have felt isolated and our mental health has been impacted. This year’s theme is to serve as a reminder to us all that we have not walked into each other’s shoes, and sometimes we all need just a little bit of kindness.
We appreciate your interest in the Junior League of Midland, Inc. The Junior League of Midland, Inc. welcomes all women with a servant heart, that want to be a community volunteer. I encourage you to learn more about us by exploring our website and finding us on Facebook and Instagram. Whether you are looking for a place to make a difference in our community, seeking a community partnership, or learning more about what we do, we welcome you!
I want to thank our members for their service and remaining steadfast with their commitment to our Midland community. I am honored to serve our community as League President and am excited to see the meaningful work done in the Midland community this year.
