The Junior League of Greenwich seeks applicants for award

The Junior League of Greenwich (JLG) is looking for young women leaders dedicated to community service.

The organization is currently accepting applications for its annual Community Service Award, which gives up to $2,500 to a local female high school senior who has clearly demonstrated leadership and sustained commitment to community service.

Applications are due on April 18 and can be found on the Junior League’s website, Jlgreenwich.org.

Last year, Stephanie Williamson, from Greenwich High School, was the JLG 2013 Community Service Award recipient. Ms. Williamson was recognized for her work with the Basset Hound Club of America and her achievements in therapy dog work. She started a program at Cos Cob Library that allows struggling young readers to practice reading aloud to dogs. In addition to juggling these commitments, she volunteered at Greenwich Hospital, was the editor-in-chief of the yearbook, and was a bronze star Girl Scout.

Receiving the JLG scholarship made it possible for her to enter an undergraduate pre-veterinary program.
