Presidents Message

It is with considerable humility and an even greater sense of gratitude that I welcome you to J.U.G.S. 37th Year of Community Service and 27th Diamond & Scholarship Awards Luncheon.

As I reflect on the accomplishments of the Los Angeles Chapter and our dedication to providing four year scholarships it is a privilege and honor to welcome you and thank you for your continued support which has allowed our students the opportunity to reach their educational potential.

From your generous contributions and continued support we award our students with grants through four years of college.  The majority of our students are meeting the challenge and have continued to further their education with higher learning and are now giving back to J.U.G.S. and the community.

To our deserving student, as quoted from Oprah Winfrey, "Please take responsibility for the energy you bring into this space."  All life is energy, utilize it to the fullest and be diligent in your effort to meet the challenge.

Congratulations to our 2013 Diamond Award Honorees, "Coach" Jim Clemons, Pastor James K. McKnight and Sid Williams.  Your leadership and commitment to the community is greatly appreciated.

I especially thank our corporate sponsors, our souvenir journal participants, families, friends and yearly patron supporters.  Because of your generous contributions we are now celebrating our 27th year of scholarship awards.

The members of J.U.G.S. are mindful of the economic situation but nonetheless, our children are our future and we implore you to continue your support of the Los Angeles Chapter of J.U.G.S.

Let me encourage you to support our souvenir journal advertisers for they, too, contribute to the success of our commitment.

Thank you for your support and please enjoy your special afternoon with J.U.G.S.
