Legacy Leaders

Celebrate Our Legacy Leaders!

As we near the Junior League of Dallas Centennial Celebration in 2022, our Centennial Committee developed a unique recognition pin for ladies who have served the League for 50 years or more!

We applaud these Legacy Leaders who helped mold our unique history! Some came to JLD as Provisionals, some as Transfers, some as Sustainers. Each of the ladies listed below has been instrumental in helping to build, then sustain our League to be the strong, thriving League it is today.

We applaud and celebrate the following Legacy Leaders who will be recognized and awarded their Legacy Leader 50 Year Pin at this year’s Milestones Luncheon!

Starting in 2017, the Centennial Committee began recognizing our Legacy Leaders, ladies who worked with and through the League for 50 years or more! The Legacy Leaders listed below have already been recognized and awarded their Legacy Leader 50 Year Pin at previous Milestones Luncheons.

Some may have started their experience in other Leagues, but we are proud to count them all as loyal Junior League of Dallas members and thank them for their continued dedication to our mission.

Each has contributed to the strength and wellbeing of JLD through their membership and voluntarism; and in so doing has contributed to the strength and wellbeing of the entire Dallas community!
