2021 Junior League of Nashville Paragon Award Recipient for Outstanding Active Member of the Year

I’m so very honored to have been chosen as one of the 2021 Junior League of Nashville Paragon Award Recipients!

There are 3 categories of this honor given each year and the award I’ve received is the “Outstanding Active Member of the Year” Award. This annual award is presented to the Junior League of Nashville member who best exemplifies the purpose of JLN and is committed to promoting volunteerism and improving the community through effective action & leadership of trained volunteers.

This is icing on the cake to end a great League year, even in the midst of a global pandemic! The Junior League of Nashville is near and dear to my heart and I’m committed to the dual mission of serving the community and developing the leadership potential of women. I’m more than honored to be a recipient!
