President's Message


Valdosta Junior Service League  

Hi There Valdosta Residents!

Thank you for visiting our website! I hope that you have enjoyed our page and have been able to find out more information about what our organization does! The Valdosta Junior Service League has spent the last 85 years in service to the Lowndes County area and that legacy continues as we look forward to another year pouring into our community! We have grown and changed in many ways over the years, but the heartbeat of our organization remains the same: we are a group of women with a desire to see our community thrive. As we learn about the needs within our area, we find a way to meet them! From fundraisers to service projects, food banks and shelters, to recognizing educators and young women of character, spreading awareness for breast cancer and so so so much more, we are women who are passionate about giving back! We pour out our time and energy and resources to a variety of different organizations within our community in an effort to make Valdosta a better place! 

Fortunately, I have the privilege of serving as the President for the 2021-2022 Year! After such a challenging and limiting season with COVID in 2020, I am so thankful for the opportunity to lead our league of women this year. While we are still adjusting to all the changes that season brought, we have so many wonderful new opportunities and exciting projects ahead, along with the return of many of our favorite annual events. I can’t wait to share them with you, our fellow citizens, and see what we can do! A huge inspiration to me has been the reminder from Ecclesiastes 4:9 which says:

“Two are better than one for they have a good return for their labor.”

As one person, my influence is so small, but by joining a greater group of women, we have been able to do some incredible things! I hope that you are excited about supporting us this year as we continue to carry on this legacy for years to come!

Yours in Service,

Meshea Hardeman

2021-2022 VJSL President
