LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
Alicia Hall 2018-2019 PRESIDENT
OR THIS PAST YEAR, IT HAS BEEN MY GREAT HONOR AND PLEASURE TO SERVE AS PRESIDENT OF THE JUNIOR LEAGUE OF DALLAS. This publication represents just one year of our 97-year mission and history of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and impacting the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. What began in 1922 with 40 women volunteering to help children and the disabled has grown to nearly 5,000 members serving a range of Dallas’ most critical needs. In the 2018-2019 year, we:
• Donated nearly 130,000 uncompensated volunteer hours and $1 million to the greater Dallas community
• Volunteered at 39 nonprofit agencies, serving in the areas of •
Arts & Cultural Enrichment, Education, Family Preservation, Health, Poverty Intervention and Violence Intervention Received more than 26,000 hours of formal and experiential training on issue-based community impact and leadership development
Today’s JLD member has many opportunities, but also many demands on her time. They are teachers, lawyers, stay-at-home moms, entrepreneurs, leaders of nonprofit and corporate boards, artists and doctors – and they make time to give back. We are immensely grateful that they choose to make community service and civic leadership a cornerstone in their lives. While the lives of our members may look different from those of our founding members, we proudly share their vision and carry on their legacy to build a stronger community through leadership development, civic education and hands-on service. In the 10 years since I have joined JLD, I have proudly served alongside fellow members – making meaningful, lasting change in Dallas one connection at a time. Through the commitment of our members, dedication of our community partners and generosity of our donors, I am confident that the Junior League of Dallas will continue to build a rich legacy of service and leadership in our city. Best,
“We proudly share the vision of our founding members and carry on their legacy to build a stronger community through leadership development, civic education and hands-on service.”

VERY DAY WE MAKE CHOICES AND THOSE CHOICES AFFECT THE PEOPLE AROUND US. We get to choose how we want to impact the world and the people in it. As Jane Goodall once said, “You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” I think of the impact the Junior League of Dallas has not only had on my life but also on the Dallas community. With nearly 5,000 members supporting 39 agencies and giving back $1 million a year to the community, that’s an incredible impact. I think about all the individual lives this exceptional group of women has impacted and the ripple effect that has impacted many others.

What many people don’t realize is the work we do in our community leaves just as big of an impact on us. We get the chance to work with amazing agencies and truly grateful and inspiring people. Many of them may not realize how they’ve touched our hearts and minds. Thank you, Dallas, for letting us be part of such a thriving and beautiful community.
RECEPTIONIST Paula Davis
Our 97th year has been full of impactful moments, including the 10-year anniversary of the T. Boone Pickens Leadership Institute. Over 300 League members have completed this 10-month leadership and training development program with more than 63 percent of them reporting they have advanced in their careers since completing the program. These are the kinds of impactful women the League is creating: intelligent, strong women who are leaders in their community, making a difference.

This League year, the JLD awarded 50 grants to deserving Dallas ISD educators affecting 9,244 Dallas ISD students. The total amount funded across all grants this year was over $89,000, with funding of up to $2,000 for each grant. Sponsors included: Texas Instruments (Presenting Sponsor), Agnes Cluthe Oliver Foundation, Hillcrest Foundation, Bank of America, N.A., Co-Trustee. One of the GFIT grants this year was Jessica Bell, an educator at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, for Wonderful Sparks, a program she designed.The projects of Wonderful Sparks will give students access to the technical training that will offer job opportunities after high school to advance their art portfolios. The work created by the students will be used in their Advanced Placement 3D portfolios toward college credit.
Recognizing the need to fight the childhood obesity epidemic, the Junior League of Dallas partners with UnitedHealthcare, the Moody Foundation and local after-school programs Sponsored by UnitedHealthcare to administer its Kids in the Kitchen (KITK) program.

Through KITK interactive program, children are taught how to prepare easy, nutritious meals, work safely in the kitchen and incorporate exercise into their daily lives.

CENTENNIAL COMMITTEE ADVISORS Lindalyn Adams Ruth Altshuler* Linda Custard Lyda Hill Caren Prothro Deedie Rose Dee Torbert
The Junior League of Dallas kicked off its Centennial celebrations in October 2018 with a big announcement. Dallas philanthropist and Junior League of Dallas Past President, Lyda Hill, announced a lead gift of $5 million to help establish the Junior League of Dallas Centennial Endowment Foundation. She then provided a challenge of an additional $5 million grant matching gift over the next two years. “I am confident that whether it is through the financial assistance they provide, the operational training they conduct or the community service they perform, the League will always use its resources to reach as far into the community as possible in order to affect meaningful change,” said Miss Hill. Centennial Co-chairs Margo Goodwin and Andrea Cheek said that the overall goal is to raise $25 million over the next 10 years. The Centennial Endowment Foundation is a separate 501c3 whose sole beneficiary is the JLD and will be used specifically for leadership and volunteer training and support services. The endowment will allow the organization to continue its mission of promoting voluntarism and developing the potential of women while improving the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. A Board of Trustees has been created to lead the Centennial Endowment and is chaired by Connie O’Neill. In addition, Goodwin and Cheek announced 100 percent participation from the Centennial Committee, Advisors and Endowment Trustees. For more information about the Centennial or if you are interested in supporting the Junior League of Dallas through a tax deductible gift to the JLD Centennial Endowment Foundation, please email Centennial Co-chair Margo Goodwin at firstname.lastname@example.org.

MIILESTONES LUNCHEON WITH LAURA DERN
The Impact of Ambition
OUR-TIME GOLDEN GLOBE AWARD WINNING-ACTRESS LAURA DERN opened up on her journey as an actress at the 2018 Milestones Luncheon at the Hilton Anatole Hotel sponsored by The Kohl Foundation.
In her latest upcoming film set to be released December 2019, Little Women, Dern plays Marmee March, the mother of four teenage daughters living in Massachusetts in the 1860s. Dern said her character resonated with values esteemed by the League. “As I learned more about Louisa Alcott’s mother, I learned that the she was America’s first social worker. She did the work of the Junior League to help find people jobs, homes and food,” Dern said. “She was this extraordinary person helping others, and she had been teaching her daughters to do the same, so I feel very inspired playing that role.” When asked to reflect on her former accomplishments or regrets, Laura Dern stressed the importance of closing the gender pay gap. “Lesson learned. For the younger generation, women should make money. Women should be ambitious. Women should have pay parity, and women should fight to be heard in this world.” During the final moments of her talk, Dern challenged the crowd to think differently about ambition, something she believes women need in order to succeed. “Somehow that involves self-sacrifice, and I think many of us grew up thinking of ambition as a dirty word, and it’s fantastic. Look what you’re doing!” she said. “You are the perfect example of turning art, love, money, passion, into a voice for a whole community. We have to raise our daughters, granddaughters and the next generation to be ambitious, to make a difference and to be heard.” Dern then asked the audience to write a love letter to themselves, evoking cheers from the crowd. 14 | DallaCite

Ambassador Jeanne L. Phillips “The League fundamentals are still there, and that is the common goal of women who are bright, talented and committed to making the world a better place.”
Alicia Hall, Jeanne L. Phillips, Peggy Meyer.
The Junior League of Dallas celebrates this year’s JLD Sustainer of the Year, the Honorable Jeanne L. Phillips, retired U.S. Ambassador and current Senior Vice President for Corporate Affairs and International Relations at Hunt Consolidated, Inc. Nominated and then selected by a committee of JLD members, Phillips received the award during the JLD’s Annual Milestones Luncheon. We sat down with Ambassador Phillips, a graduate of Southern Methodist University, to hear how the training she receive in the League influenced her career and life’s journey and why she continues to support the organization. “A lot of my early experiences in my 20s and early 30s allowed me to test my skills, to learn my strengths and know my weaknesses. I love that about the Junior League. I think it’s a safe place for people to learn about themselves and have the most impact possible as a volunteer,” she said. She emphasized how the JLD laid the groundwork that helped her step outside of her comfort zone. From 2001 until 2003, she served as chief spokesperson for the U.S. during President George W. Bush’s administration. She was the United States Permanent Representative to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) with rank of Ambassador in Paris, France. She also was a delegate to the World Economic Forum in New York in 2002 and in Davos, Switzerland, in 2003. Phillips has lived in Dallas since 1976. She was named as one of 100 most influential women in Dallas, receiving the YWCA Centennial Award in 2008.

Although Ambassador Phillips witnessed changes in the faces of the JLD, she said the organization still has the same values and dedication to make a difference. “I think the League fundamentals are still there, and that is the common goal of women who are bright, talented and committed to making the world a better place,” she said. “The Junior League is a roll-up-your-sleeves, hands-on, doit organization. I think people who are drawn to the League appreciate the fact that the people who have gone before them are their teachers and have left behind information useful for them.” It’s this kind of commitment that leaves a legacy behind for the next generation. “One of the reasons that most of us stay as sustainers is because we are devoted to the friends we made, devoted to the work that the League does and we’re devoted to the idea that we’re greater in numbers than we are by ourselves,” Ambassador Phillips said. As Senior Vice President for Corporate Affairs and International Relations at Hunt Consolidated, Inc., Ambassador Phillips is currently responsible for local, state, national and international government affairs for all of Hunt family companies.
