TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (May 17, 2011) –

During the 51st Annual Junior League of Tallahassee (JLT) May Meeting, the JLT announced the winners of the 2011 Awards. Each year and community partners are honored to receive these prestigious awards.

“It’s been an honor to have volunteered alongside such remarkable women – from this year’s Board of Directors to working with all the dynamic committee chairs, members and community partners, “ said Betsy Couch, APR 2010-2011 President of the Junior League of Tallahassee. “These award recipients contributed to the Junior League’s success this year.”

During the 2010-2011 fiscal year, which runs June 1-May 31, the organization was able to more than double its positive impact in the community by directly working with over 1,500 children and families. In addition, JLT’s signature fundraisers, Whale of a Sale and Jingle Jubilee, net profited $80,000, and proceeds support the JLT’s mission of training volunteers and implementing community projects that improve the lives of children and families by helping children succeed in school.

The following women and businesses were recipients of the JLT’s Annual Awards.
