The ladies of The Junior League of Murfreesboro recently held their 2019 Annual Dinner at the historic Oaklands Mansion. Achievements and highlights were announced, as well as updates on various programs, such as the JLM College Scholarship. Multiple awards were given this evening to recognize ladies who went above and beyond in certain areas. Notably, the “Spirit of Voluntarism,” was awarded posthumously to Kristin Kovach, who lost her battle with cancer earlier this year. Her husband, Greg Kovach, son Landon, mother Sandera Becker and bestfriend, Julie Stump were on hand to accept this award in her honor.

The Junior League of Murfreesboro is a diverse group of women devoted to building a better community by promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
