    The Junior League of Phoenix won this year's Award for Community Impact for taking on the dire state of early childhood education in Maricopa County with ROCKETS (Raising Our Children's Knowledge by Education Through Science). 

    Designed to foster the critical thinking, exploration and problem-solving skills essential to future academic success through hands-on science and math lessons, ROCKETS has hit several milestones since it began in 2010.  The League has increased membership and community participation in the program; branded itself in the community; created a credible seminar for teachers; attracted funding; and delivered a high-quality science and math skills program to thousands of children.  In addition, the League has deepened its partnership with the Children's Museum of Phoenix, which it helped build and where it now maintains a ROCKETS classroom.

    On November 6th, JLP was recognized with the 'Heart of the House' Award for our volunteer commitment over the past 25 years with Ronald McDonald House. The black tie event was held at the historic AZ Biltmore. The gala was co-chaired by JLP Sustainer Dee Ann Nowell and Past President, Kiffie Robbins.
    Tomika Hargett accepted the award on behalf of the 1100 JLP members in the Valley; and dedicated the award to Judy Shubert and Suzanne Hanson who were instrumental in bringing Ronald McDonald House to Phoenix 25 years ago.
