Since its founding in 1923, the Junior League of Greater New Haven has sought to effect positive change in the Greater New Haven community by promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and supporting the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. As the League prepares for its Centennial Anniversary, we celebrate our members and share their incredible stories, recognizing how each individual story makes up that of the League as a whole.
Rev. Dr. Bonnie Scott
Rev. Dr. Bonnie Scott joined the Junior League in Chicago eight years ago. A true trailblazer, Bonnie is proud of having graduated from Yale Divinity School in the 1960s and becoming ordained. She describes herself as, “one of few women,” to have achieved this accomplishment. In addition to her United Church of Christ ministry, Bonnie is also a practicing psychotherapist.
The highlight of Bonnie’s time in the Junior League is meeting interesting women and contributing to service projects. She was attracted to join the Junior League by the “emphasis on justice and building strong women in leadership.”
