JLD Honors Rangel School Graduates

The Sustainers of Junior League of Dallas are hosting a luncheon to honor the 59 graduates of the Irma Lerma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School on Saturday April 18.

The graduates of the all-girls’ school, many of whom are the first generation to be college-bound, were previously paired with Sustainer mentors for career advice and encouragement to continue volunteering.

“Our goal in hosting this luncheon is to raise the awareness of opportunities available to the graduates once they finish college, particularly those related to volunteerism,” said Beth Brown, luncheon chair.

The speakers at the luncheon are JLD members Cynthia Villanueva and Miranda Bond. Villanueva, attorney and JLD diversity chair, will speak about her relationship with school namesake Rep. Rangel, and Bond will speak about the importance of leadership.

The luncheon honorees will receive mementos to celebrate their graduation and will keep in touch with their Sustainers throughout their college careers.
