September 3, 2013 | Lisa Hubbard Named 64th President of the Junior League


JLC Kicks Off Its 2013-2014 Year of Service

CINCINNATI, OH – SEPTEMBER 3, 2013 – Lisa Hubbard of Crestview Hills, Kentucky, has been appointed president of the Junior League of Cincinnati (JLC) for 2013-2014. Hubbard has been a member of the JLC since 2002 and has held numerous leadership positions, including co-chair of the JLC’s signature project, MindPeace, from 2002 to 2007.

“My vision for 2013-2014 is centered on back-to-basics as we head into our 94th year of service to the Greater Cincinnati community. We are refocusing our efforts connecting all of our work back to the three hubs of our mission: developing the potential of women, improving communities and promoting volunteerism,” said Lisa Hubbard, President of JLC.

Hubbard added: “We will launch new signature projects to address two critically important, unmet needs in our community. One focuses on refugee resettlement as we work to close the gap between services provided and the individuals’ immediate and long-term needs. The other addresses pediatric oral health needs in Greater Cincinnati, focusing on education and advocacy for comprehensive dental care. Proper oral hygiene impacts children throughout their lives. It is a surprisingly major problem throughout Greater Cincinnati.” Hubbard served as JLC Membership Vice President, Community Projects VP and a member of the Nominating Committee.
