At the heart of the Junior League of Collin County is volunteerism. To celebrate and encourage volunteerism throughout the Collin County region, JLCC hosts the annual Excellence in Volunteer Service Awards to honor local volunteers who are changing our community for good. Held at Piazza on the Green in McKinney, community leaders served as award presenters and Dr. Cheryl “Action” Jackson of Minnie’s Food Pantry was the keynote speaker. A common theme was heard among the nominees’ stories that together, volunteers and nonprofits change lives. Not just the lives of those receiving but also of those giving. Excellence in Volunteer Service is sponsored by David & Chris Downs, SimplyConnect, Susie Cakes, Fiore x 7, Pittman Designs and Community Impact.
Junior League of Collin County offers information sessions year-round for prospective members to learn about the Junior League’s mission, community programs, and requirements as well as meet current members. Each year women from across the Collin County area embark on a journey to serve their communities and develop their own leadership potential through the Junior League of Collin County.

Hilary Jackson is a fast learner.
Before joining the Junior League of Collin County, Hilary was already a successful banking professional…but she admits that she didn’t know much about the challenges facing her community – and the nonprofit organizations addressing those challenges – even after living there for 12 years.
It’s been said that everything Mary Harriman did, she did with enthusiasm, enlisting others to join her along the way. A natural collaborator, she recognized that women had an important leadership role to play in the community. The same can be said for Senator Florence Shapiro, who for decades has rolled up her sleeves and enthusiastically sought out solutions for meeting the needs in her community.
