Character Achievement Celebration

2018 Character Achievement Princess Tea Party

One of our favorite days of the year! On Saturday, February 10 the VJSL hosted 23 young ladies for the third annual Character Achievement Princess Party. These kindergarten and first grade girls from Valdosta, Lowndes County and Brooks County schools were nominated by their teachers and counselors for showing outstanding character in their classrooms and among their peers.

Upon arrival they were treated to manicures, hair and makeup thanks to cosmetology students at Wiregrass Georgia Technical College. They played games and created princess crafts, followed by lunch and sweet treats. The girls were surrounded by some of their favorite princesses like Belle, Tiana, and Elena, thanks to volunteers from Valwood School. The party ended with sidewalk chalk, goodie bags, and dancing, of course!

Big thanks to Bella’s Salon, Bush Wealth Management, and Guardian Bank for your support!

The League will continue to recognize and reward young ladies, encouraging them to work hard in school and grow as leaders of service, with character, kindness and generosity.  

2017 Character Achievement Princess Tea Party

The Valdosta Junior Service League hosted the second annual Character Achievement Princess Tea Party on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at the Converse Dalton Ferrell House.  This event recognized and rewarded local elementary school girls for their academic achievement and outstanding character as demonstrated within their school communities. 

The League worked with school guidance counselors at each elementary school in the Lowndes and Valdosta School systems, who nominated two girls that displayed exceptional qualities in the classroom and among their peers. The 20 girls in attendance were greeted by princesses, enjoyed a morning of makeup, face painting, manicures and a glamour photo booth, followed by a “tea party” lunch, and dancing with the princess. 

The League will continue to recognize and reward young ladies, encouraging them to work hard in school and grow as leaders of service, with character, kindness and generosity.   

VJSL looks forward to hosting another Character Achievement party on February 10, 2018!
