President’s Message

President’s Message for 2022-23

Welcome to the Junior League of Midland, Inc.! Thank you for stopping by 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 whose Mission is to advance women’s leadership for meaningful community impact through volunteer action, collaboration, and training. For more than seven decades, the Junior League has been a premier training and volunteer 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 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.

Building Our Community. Choosing Joy.

This is our theme for the 2022-2023 League year. We are consistently building a better community for others in our community. But I also want to build community within our own League. Among ourselves. The last few years have been challenging, to say the least. I think community and connection is what we crave as people and as a League. I hope that we don’t focus on “rebuilding.” Rather we are simply continuing to build. You see, if we say we are rebuilding, that means we are starting over. We are looking back and trying to rebuild to something in the past. But instead, consider right now our baseline. Let’s start building right now. We move forward together and build our League up, so we can then go out stronger and build a better Midland.

Choosing Joy. We, individually, as a League, a city and a nation have had a hard few years, to say the least. Life is hard and painful at times, but there is always joy. Find that glimmer. That silver lining. That one little spark. And choose that. Choosing joy isn’t always easy, but it is necessary.

The Junior League of Midland 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.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Steadman

President, 2022-2023
