Dear Friends, It is my honor to welcome you to this special 90th Anniversary edition of our annual Junior League of High Point HIGH-Lights magazine. The theme for the 2018-2019 League year was Celebrating our Past - Inspiring our Future and as you will see in the pages that follow this past year we paid tribute to the members and projects that built our organization, as well as embarked on initiatives to foster the next generation of community leaders. True to our mission, this year provided our members with numerous opportunities for growth and training, while also serving our community. One particular highlight of the 2018-2019 League year was our 90 Hours for 90 Years Volunteer-a-thon, where members and community partners participated in ninety consecutive hours of service to honor our ninety year history of service to the High Point community. In addition, this year we launched our Legacy Investor Initiative aimed at eliminating the remaining debt on our Junior League headquarters. Thanks to the generosity of our Legacy Investors and continued fundraising efforts of the League, we are a third of the way to our goal of paying off the remaining mortgage on our beloved Briles House. Other extraordinary accomplishments of this past year include:

WELCOME FROM THE PRESIDENT Dr. Sadie Leder Elder

• Completing over 3,500 hours of community service and working with nearly three dozen local, non-profit partners to improve the lives of women and children; • Holding two very successful fundraising projects, including our 12th annual poinsettia sale and our Trucks, Taps, and Tunes event in partnership with Forward High Point; • Providing an Empowered Women, Empower Women training series focused on personal and professional wellness to equip women with the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in their lives, jobs, and communities; • Having a successful year in terms of membership recruitment, retention, and engagement, including a New Member class of a dozen women and revamped General Membership Meetings that include meals, childcare, and training opportunities; • Increasing visibility of our Junior League brand in both traditional media outlets and social media channels. On a personal note, it has been my honor to serve as the President of the Junior League of High Point. I am humbled by the dedication, passion, and enthusiasm of the women who built this organization over the past ninety years, as well as those who I am privileged to work with on a daily basis. Together we are committed to bettering our community, ourselves, and our League. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve a second term as your President, and look forward to the many exciting initiatives we have planned for the 20192020 League year. Thank you for your ongoing support of the Junior League of High Point. It is with your partnership that we remain a vibrant and relevant organization that plays a vital role in the future of our community! Warmest regards,

Dr. Sadie Leder Elder President, 2018-2020

Who are we?

The Junior League of High Point The Junior Service League of High Point began on April 28, 1928, with twenty-four charter members and a focus on volunteer service. In 1952, the League was accepted into the Association of Junior Leagues of America and “Service” was dropped from the name. Over the past 90 years, the Junior League of High Point focused its volunteer efforts on health, welfare, education, and cultural arts. Today, our League consists of over three hundred New Members, Actives, and Sustainers all focused on the mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving our community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

EMPOWER Conference Thoughts

(verb) to promote the self-actualization or influence of someone

Amanda LeFever

From January 24th through the 26th, I joined 400 women at the 2019 Winter Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. As the incoming Executive Vice President, I was glad for the opportunity to improve my skills, learn about new tools, and share insights with other Junior Leagues as we collaborated not only for the 2019-2020 year but also for the role this upcoming year will play in extending our League work well into the future. There were many practical takeaways — but the conference was more than just a practical learning experience for me. It was unbelievably empowering and humbling to be surrounded by so many women who are trying to make their communities better. It was a chance to truly immerse myself in the extraordinary spirit of our group, and to be inspired by the way that other Junior Leagues are carrying out our mission. It was an opportunity to see our values at work; to exchange ideas and collaborate on how best to navigate change and create cultures that focus on positive member experiences; and for us all to simultaneously be both respectful followers of the amazing women who have served our League before us, and leaders to those who are serving communities across the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Mexico. The experience was a gentle but effective reminder that lasting cultural change isn’t made from the top down but from the bottom up, by individuals courageous enough to make a difference in their community and to live the change that they seek. Thank you again for allowing me to represent the Junior League of High Point. I feel exhilarated and energetic to get started on the work we have ahead of us!

Amanda LeFever, incoming Executive Vice President

General Membership Meetings This League year, the revamped General Membership Meetings (GMMs) featured JLHP updates from each committee, a training portion and a built-in service project. To make our GMMs more member- and family-freindly, each meeting also included dinner and childcare. Members found these monthly sessions to be productive and meaningful. Service projects included writing letters to local service personnel, donating yarn to support the Close Knit Knitting Group at the Hayworth Cancer Center and donating gently used business clothing for the YWCA Career Closet. Each GMM was generously sponsored by a local business and featured a compelling discussion from a local organization that has been impacted by the League. We heard from several League Sustainers, Mental Health Associates of the Triad, the YWCA of High Point, specifically their Women’s Resource Center, Carousel Theatre and visited our very own, Edith Brady, at the High Point Museum to learn about the Haley House.

Training

Helping our members become the best version of themselves.

Our Mission is to improve the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Training our members is at the core of the Junior League of High Point which is why we put an emphasis on training opportunities this year.

Empowered Women, Empower Women JLHP developed and hosted the Empowered Women, Empower Women training series based on feedback provided by our own members. This series of workshops focused on financial health, physical well-being, navigating workplace personalities and emotional health. The trainings were provided by expert women from the High Point community and held at the Briles House. Our members felt empowered and ready to take on the world after these trainings!

Financial Health Myrna Wigley This training session focused on the importance of women having an understanding of their personal and family finances. Members considered their personal financial goals and discussed how to develop a strategy to achieve them. Myrna Wigley is a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones in High Point, NC.

Emotional Health Dr. Sarah Ross Focused on emotional health, this training session highlighted ways women can best care for themselves as they are often tasked in caring for those around them. Dr. Sarah Ross has a Ph.D in Psychology and is an Assistant Professor of Psychology in the David R. Hayworth College of Arts and Sciences at High Point University.

Physical Well-Being Melissa Marion Focused on physical health and wellness, this training session emphasized the importance of putting one’s health first in order to be successful in other areas of our lives. Melissa Marion, MS, CHWC is the Director of Employee Wellness Program at High Point University.

Navigating Workplace Personalities Dr. Rhonda Butler During this training session members learned how to navigate different personalities in the workplace and how to develop a strategy to fulfill their mission. A key takeaway from this session was the need to consistently be one’s “authentic best self." Dr. Rhonda Butler has a Ph.D in Leadership Studies with a focus in Organizational Management and is an Assistant Professor of Management at the Earl N. Phillips School of Business at High Point University.

The Little Black Dress Initiative Did you know? 58% of households in High Point have to choose between shelter, food, medicine, and utilities. Many High Point households are faced with difficult decisions every day regarding the ability to buy necessities. This means that many women in our community have limited career opportunities because they lack professional clothing for interviewing and/or retaining a job. This spring, JLHP members again took part in the annual Little Black Dress Initiative (LBDI), an international initiative supported and promoted by AJLI. Members wore the same dress each day for one week to raise awareness and increase knowledge around the limits poverty can place on choices of expression and opportunities for employment. The weeklong awareness campaign ended with our Common Threads event at Theatre Art Galleries, planned and hosted by our New Member Class. The event featured live music and a silent auction, and provided the opportunity for attendees to learn more about the issue within our community. Over $8,000 was raised through the LBDI and Common Threads Event.

TRUCKS, TAPS,

“Trucks, Taps, & Tunes was not only the Spring Fundraiser for the Junior League of High Point, but also an event for the entire High Point community”, says Grace Lackey, Junior League of High Point Spring Fundraiser Co-Chair. “In planning this year’s fundraiser, we wanted to make sure it was family-friendly and a fun atmosphere while bringing awareness to the needs of our community.”

TRUCKS

Event goers had a variety of food and drinks to choose from. Southern Axecent provided additional entertainment with their axe-throwing.

TAPS

Local brews were available from Brown Truck Brewery and Bull City Ciderworks.


AND TUNES

Through a partnership with Forward High Point, the Junior League of High Point hosted Trucks, Taps, & Tunes to kick off the ‘Rock the Point’ summer concert series in Downtown High Point. With food trucks, local breweries, live music and a fantastic kid-zone there was truly something for everyone. The event saw a large and lively crowd and was a very successful fundraiser for the League. At an exciting time for the High Point community, just a few days before the Rockers opening night, the JLHP was thrilled and honored to host a fun, family-friendly event to bring together our community.

TUNES

Nashville rising star, Casey Clark, headlined the show while local talent Joey Whitaker was the opener.

KID ZONE

Face painting, balloon making, an obstacle course, plus lots of fun with our friends from Northwood Animal Hospital and Davidson County Animal Alliance.

PARTICIPATE

(verb) to take part, to have a part or share in something

This League year we proudly partnered with over thirty High Point organizations to combine efforts and make an even bigger impact on the community we live in.

Kid Zone at the Bobby Labonte Charity Bike Ride

Holiday Toy Drive at 5 Before the Feast

The JLHP organized and staffed the Kid Zone at the community celebration that included the Bobby Labonte Charity Bike Ride, Heart & Sole Race and Hi-Fest. Our Kid Zone featured many outdoor activities like life-size bowling, chalk, bubbles, corn-hole, a bounce-house and basketball game plus face-painting and coloring. This was a great day for the kids and the volunteers!

Just before Thanksgiving, the JLHP partnered with the Hartley Drive YMCA to support the first ever Toy Drive in conjunction with 5 Before the Feast. Junior League members donated toys and their time to support this great cause and event. Members served as volunteers at the fun-run and 5K on Thanksgiving morning. We also helped to collect nearly 175 toys to make the holiday season brighter for children right here in our community.

Simon Jewelers Christmas Tree Decorating Contest

Miss High Point Outstanding Teen

The JLHP was honored to be featured in Simon Jewelers first annual non-profit Christmas Tree Decorating contest. Our tree celebrated 90 years of community involvement and featured past and present community impact projects. This was a wonderful way to celebrate the League and share it with the community at the Holidays!

High Point Holiday Parade This year, we participated in the High Point Holiday Parade in style! League members, along with family and friends, waved to paradegoers from a holidaythemed trolley.

Miss High Point Scholarship Food Drive In the Fall, we partnered with the Miss High Point Scholarship Pageant to collect canned goods to fill food pantries for the holidays. Over 400 non-perishable food items were collected for the Triad Health Project’s food pantry.

CELEBRATE

(verb) to recognize an important occasion

Welcome Back Party

The League year kicked off with a fun get together at the Briles House featuring food and beverages, live music and lots of laughs. Our welcome back party is the perfect way for New Members, Actives and Sustainers to get to know one another as we prepare for a productive and meaningful League year. We look forward to seeing all Members at our next welcome back party at the end of the Summer!

90 hour Volunteer-a-thon Kickoff Party We kicked off our 90 hour volunteera-thon by inviting League members, community partners, and family and friends to a special event at the Briles House. This was a wonderful way to celebrate the Junior League of High Point’s anniversary before a weekend spent giving back to our community.

Past President’s Luncheon Holiday Social The annual Holiday Social, held at the Briles House, allows our members to celebrate with League friends before the hustle-and-bustle of the Holiday season. The halls were beautifully decked thanks to a group of Sustainers who spent a Sunday afternoon filling our headquarters with cheer. Our members always look forward to kicking off the Holiday season with their League friends.

Junior League of High Point | www.jlhp.org

The theme for this League year was, “Celebrating Our Past - Inspiring Our Future” and the annual President’s Luncheon is the perfect opportunity to do so. This event, held at the Briles House, is an opportunity to celebrate accomplishments and brainstorm ideas for continued growth and impact in the High Point Community.

The Annual Dinner There is no better way to end the League year than celebrating our members and accomplishments! Our Annual Dinner is a time to bring together New, Active and Sustaining Members, in addition to community partners, advisors and friends. This year we gathered at the High Point Country Club for a lovely evening featuring food, drinks and fellowship. Zafeira Paradis was honored with the “Spirit of the League” award due to her dedication to the League’s many projects this year and her passion for all things League-related. Holly Davis was recognized as the “Most Active Sustainer” and thanked for her constant support of the League through many different facets. To say thank you for years of service to the League, Larry Shaw at Sir Speedy received our “Spirit of the Community” award. Our Annual Dinner is also an opportunity to celebrate our New Member Class and Sustainers. The New Member Class was congratulated on their successful project and welcomed into the League as Active members. The Sustainer Board celebrated the successful year and presented the League with a check for $4,000 to be put towards the Briles House. We also honored members celebrating special League milestones: 5 years, 10 years, 20 years, 25 years and 25+ years. The JLHP is grateful for the opportunity to celebrate its members and accomplishments in a meaningful way at the end of each League year.

THANK

(verb) to express gratitude to

SUSTAINER SPOTLIGHT The Junior League of High Point is deeply grateful to our sustaining members who have given their time, leadership skills and financial support to improve our League and the High Point community. One of the most important benefits of joining our League is the lifelong friendships and connections to the women in our community, while working together to improve it. Sustainers use their Junior League of High Point training and expertise professionally to share with other community organizations, and within the League, serve as Sustainer Advisors to the Board of Directors and League committees. In addition to our many places of involvement…we also have lots of fun! We would love for each of you to reach out to past sustaining members of our League to come back and join us on our journey. From Merriam Webster comes the definition of sustain, “to provide what is needed for (something or someone) to exist or continue.” We need ALL of you to continue our legacy in the High Point community. Together, we can make a difference!

Sustainer members at the Sustainer Tea honoring our New Members

This year we began with our Annual Sustainer Luncheon at High Point Country Club as we kicked off our ninety year legacy of service and voluntarism of Sustainers Alisha Boger, Cindy ninety hours to the High Point Community. We joined together to decorate the Armfield, and Susan Samuel Briles House for the Holidays and during the Holiday Stroll held our Annual Bake Sale. We also enjoyed meeting old and new friends as we celebrated together at our Holiday Social. In January, the Sustainers held our famous “Souper Sale” and indeed enjoyed our fellowship, ringing in the New Year! In March, we held our New Member Social at the home of Nancy Warburton. We met our newest League members and learned how busy they had been volunteering in our community. One of our favorite events is the League’s Annual Dinner where we all come together to celebrate the accomplishments of the Junior League of High Point for the year and celebrate with our traditional gift of giving back to our League for the Briles House. Many thanks to each and every one of you for your support and commitment to the Junior League of High Point. I have served as your Junior League Sustainer President for two years and it has been an honor to serve along with our Sustainer Board. They have all been fabulous to work with and I would like to thank them for their dedication and commitment to our League, along with ALL sustainers for their continued support. It has been my pleasure to serve,
