Greetings Members and Guests,
I am extremely honored to be serving as the 24th Central Regional Director during the 75th anniversary of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. On behalf of the members of our region, I welcome you to our section of the national website.
The Central Region covers the largest geographical area in Jack and Jill, spanning the heartland of our great country. Currently, we have chapters that stretch north to Des Moines, Iowa; south to Little Rock, Arkansas; east to East St. Louis, Illinois; and west to Denver. All 16 chapters in our region are committed to develop leaders in our children by providing purposeful programming that enriches them socially, culturally, legislatively and educationally. Second, we are encouraging our children—especially our teens—to pick up the baton that was passed on by the many civil rights leaders of our past and become community service advocates.
This year is dedicated to empowering our potential with growth and positive change. We plan to add new chapters within the region, strengthen our existing chapters by holding four area workday clusters and adopting Dr. Martin Luther King’s “drum major instinct” to community service.
I am blessed to have a talented regional leadership team that is committed to our region for the next two years. They include Regional Treasurer Traci Rhone, Regional Secretary Robin Rice Hodges, Regional Member at Large Elsie Jackson and of course our National Recording Secretary Michelle Gentry Anderson. We welcome your input and support as we make historically gains of growth and positive change for Central Region.
Central Regional Director
