Mary Harriman Community Leadership Award

This award was established by AJLI in recognition of the vision of Mary Harriman, the founder of the Junior League in the United States. It honors a member whose volunteer efforts provide a contemporary link to Harriman’s sense of social responsibility and her ability to motivate others to share their talents through volunteer service. The Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri, is honored to have two recipients of this prestigious award:
