New Team at Junior League

For 92 years, Junior League of Miami has helped guide strong female civic leaders who have taken on numerous initiatives to contribute to the growth of our city. The latest officers and board members of the all-volunteer group were recently announced.

Deborah Koch is the new president of the Miami chapter. Carla Crossno will serve as president-elect and Laura Van Gorden will serve as the executive vice president of the board.

“It is humbling to follow in the footsteps of 91 amazing leaders who have accomplished so much for the League and our community,” said Koch in an email. “I look forward to working with my colleagues on the board and the wonderful members that make Junior League of Miami such a powerful force in the community.”

The latest projects include the launch of two collaborations. Members will work with the Riverside House, for women transitioning out of incarceration, and DIBIA Dream/Honeyshine, where they will be working with high school women on the STEAM curriculum.
