Luitjens receives JLSP award

Assistant director of law admissions Amy Luitjens recently received the Elizabeth Ames Jackson Founder Award from the Junior League of Saint Paul (JLSP).

Luitjens received the award at the Junior League’s 94th annual meeting earlier this month. The award is presented to an individual who is a good role model in all aspects of JLSP, shows consistent outstanding achievement in projects and fundraisers, and represents the embodiment of JLSP.

Luitjens served on the Junior League’s 2011-12 board of directors as the director of communications. In this capacity, she oversaw the work of a marketing chair, webmaster, and journal editor, as well as managed all internal and external League communications, including social media, press releases, strategic relationship development with media sources, and work on the League’s quarterly journal.

"The league offers women the unique opportunity to grow and develop skills while giving back to the community and fostering incredible friendships," Luitjens said. "In my relatively short time with the league, I have benefited immensely, learning from members both locally and all over the country. Perhaps even more importantly, I am very proud of the work the league has done and will continue to do in its mission to build a better community here in Saint Paul."

Luitjens has been a member of the Junior League of Saint Paul since 2010. Her prior placements include advocacy and by-laws committee.

The Junior League of Saint Paul is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
