Congratulations to Junior League Sustainer Lyda Hill for receiving the 2015 Mary Harriman Community Leadership Award. The Association of Junior League International’s most prestigious award is presented annually to the woman who embodies the social responsibility and volunteerism as Junior League founder Mary Harriman.
Hill joins an esteemed group of past recipients including former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, former Texas Senator Florence Shapiro, and community philanthropist Ruth Altshuler.
Junior League selected Hill for the award due to her generous philanthropic contributions to the medical, educational, and scientific communities.
“I am very appreciative of this honor and want to thank the hundreds of fellow volunteers with whom I worked to make a difference,” said Lyda Hill. “It was the Junior League that taught me skills that have helped me succeed in business -‐ and life.”
