President’s Message

I am honored to serve as the 2023-2024 President of The Junior League of Hampton Roads and lead with our Board of Directors.

As we wrap up another successful League year, a New Year begins. A New Year to reflect upon where we have come from, come up with new ideas, make changes and support gaps in our community resources.

Our League has made remarkable strides in promoting women’s leadership and creating a positive impact in our community. We offer quality trainings, and opportunities to give back to the community. From addressing food insecurity by collecting 4,000 lbs. of food to distribute in the community, promoting education with our scholarships to high school seniors every year since 2018, to giving community opportunity grants out to other non-profits! Junior League of Hampton Roads has had a lasting impact on countless lives in the Hampton Roads Community for 67 years!

Over the past 13 years I have seen the dedication of League women time and time again. Each one of us ambitious, resilient and resourceful. By embracing our shared vision, we have strengthened our ability to make a meaningful difference in our community.

We may have just over 40 Active members this year but we are mighty with our efforts. We are fueled by our love of the Junior League mission. As Margaret Meed once said “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed individuals can change the world. In fact, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

I look forward to continuing to work with you all to be a presence in our community and give back our time and talents. Together, we will continue to empower women, serve our community, and shape a future filled with compassion and inclusivity

It’s going to be hard at times but we are going to make this 67th year for the Junior League of Hampton Roads Shine!

With appreciation,

Kimberly Gibbs

2023-2024 President
