We would like to highlight the amazing women who gave so much of their extra time to the Junior League of London for the 2015-2016 year! See below for our 2015-2016 award winners:
Members of the Month for May
Congratulations to our May Members of the Month – Stacie Styles & Diana Webster! Stacie and Diana were nominated by numerous members for their continued involvement in the JLL despite not serving on a committee. They are wonderful JLL ambassadors and illustrate that you do not have to be on a committee to be involved and make a difference in the JLL. Thank you for all of your hard work!
Committee of the Year – Boutique de Noel
The Boutique de Noel (BdN) Committee pulled off a fantastic event. Each committee member put in a ton of effort to ensure the event was a success.
This committee demonstrated teamwork and determination despite many changes to the event this year. Their collaborative spirit in the final four weeks leading up to BdN was an inspiration to everyone around them. They met each challenge head-on with original ideas and a can-do spirit. Thank you for all of your hard work! You all pulled off a successful event!
Leader of the Year (Lynn Begany, Communications Director)
Lynn Begany revolutionized the Communications Director role this year. Despite being equipped with a small team and no resources, Lynn’s passion for communicating the mission of the JLL was never compromised. She brought integrity and a professional work ethic to the role each and every day. Regardless of the size of the task Lynn brought thoughtful solutions to the table, time and time again. Lynn handled difficult and stressful relationships with style and grace. She also brokered high level press relationships for the JLL in support of a critical JLL fundraiser. She was not just a vessel to transmit the messages of the JLL, she was a strategic partner for chairs and council VPs. Thank you for your leadership Lynn!
Volunteer of the Year (Meg Grogan, Holiday Hampers Co-Chair)
Meg Grogan exemplifies Volunteer of the Year. She continually contributes to projects across all councils, and makes a positive impact on everything she touches. She continually works to make things better. Meg not only enthusiastically communicates her ideas, she also listens to others, collaborates, and champions the objectives that have been agreed to by the group. Meg embodies integrity and loves the Junior League of London. Thank you for all of your hard work this year!
Sustainer of the Year (Jennifer Crowl)

- Community Research Director

She has been named Active/Volunteer of the Year and also served on the POLL (Presidents of Large Leagues) Nominating Committee for a year and chaired the committee for a year.
