The Junior League of Youngstown introduced two new awards at its annual dinner May 8 at Mr. Anthony’s in Boardman. The JLY Milestone Award was presented to Suzanne Fleming, left, and the JLY Service Award to Deb Hartig, right. Outgoing JLY president, Susan Stewart, is in the center. The Milestone Award is intended for a woman who has demonstrated outstanding leadership in the League, and has paved the way for future members. Fleming, of Youngstown, joined the group in 1973 and has held several offices, including president from 1983-1985. The Service Award honors a woman who acts as a role model and shares her talents through effective volunteer service. Hartig, of Struthers, has the distinction of being the League’s longest serving active member, a status that she has maintained for 20 years.
