The Texas Lantana Chapter of the National Charity League, Inc. was founded in 2016 and has since contributed more than 18,000 volunteer hours to the Denton County Community. Even during the struggle and disruptiveness caused by the pandemic, this chapter’s 18 seniors have grown into strong, well-rounded women, which is one of the goals of the National Charity League, Inc.
Through mission-based programming, the NCL develops socially responsible community leaders and strengthens the mother-daughter bond. The core program includes leadership development, community service, and cultural experiences. This chapter’s seniors and their mothers accounted for more than 3,200 hours of philanthropy work in the Denton County Community at organizations like Denton County Friends of the Family, Serve Denton, Community Storehouse, Dogwood Estates, and Our Daily Bread. National Charity League celebrates its excellence and contributions to the community.
In the words of Chapter President Heather Peet, “I am so very proud of the wonderful young women in this class and have no doubt they will continue to serve and impact their communities wherever life may lead them.”
These outstanding young women also had some fun opportunities for growth, development, and learning during their five years with the organization. They had visits to the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame Museum and Steel City Pops in Fort Worth, a retreat to Group Dynamix in Addison, went stand-up paddleboarding on Lake Lewisville, as well as taking a trip to Kwik Kar to learn car care prior to being licensed drivers.
The National Charity League celebrates the seniors’ achievements, which were acknowledged at the traditional Senior Recognition event held at the Embassy Suites Denton Convention Center. The senior class represents seven local high schools including Argyle, Booker T. Washington, Flower Mound, Guyer, Liberty Christian, Marcus, and Ponder.
“The Senior Recognition Committee had to get creative in a pandemic and the devastating cold weather but were excited to host this wonderful event to honor the class of 2021 and to celebrate the Texas Lantana Chapter, our members, and our special guests,” said the Event Chair Kristin Jenkins. “Our senior class is a dynamic group of hard-working and caring, young ladies. We cannot wait to see what the future holds for them.”
The Texas Lantana Chapter currently has 266 members and alumnae. They hope to add more amazing women to their impressive ranks and improve their communities through hard work and dedication for many years to come.
