Honoring Service

The National Charity League, Inc., (NCL) San Dieguito Chapter held its annual Mother-Daughter Chapter Awards Tea in late May to honor the outgoing board of directors, install the incoming board, welcome provisional members to the chapter, and acknowledge overall time contributed to serving NCL’s mission. “The Chapter Awards Tea is a time to reflect and celebrate all the hard work of our members and the positive impact their efforts have on the community,” said Chapter President Amy Monteparte. “Through leadership, philanthropy, and cultural experiences, our members gain valuable and memorable experiences.” The tea was organized by the eighth grade class; the awards ceremony was produced by the Ticktocker Council, consisting of representatives from each grade.

The mother and daughter members of NCL San Dieguito collectively contributed over 10,500 hours to various philanthropies throughout San Diego during the 2016-2017 year. Leadership Project Recognition was given to six young women during the ceremony. Other awards given included the Hour Glass Award (100 hours of service to one philanthropy), Yellow Rose Bouquet Award (100 hours of service to combined philanthropies), and Servant’s Heart Award, Gold (100 hours of on-site service to combined philanthropies). Members were also acknowledged for completing 20, 50, and 75 hours of philanthropic service. Class of 2018 member Jordan Lee received the Merci Award for completing 170.75 hours, the highest number of philanthropy service hours.
