" The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already." - John Buchan
The members of GFWC Four Corner's Junior Woman's Club would like to thank our outgoing President Lexa Comstock for her years of dedication and service to our club and the Four Corners community. Lexa will be moving into a new leadership position, as GFCW Florida Juniors District 9 Director, on July 1st.
Lexa became a member of Four Corners Juniors in 2012, she has been on numerous committees over the years including; 3 years as Co-Chair of our annual Fashion Show, Chairwoman of the Bylaws committee, and a member of subcommittees for 2 Golf Tournaments, many Fashion Shows and Membership. She was the webmaster for our club site for 4 years and a member of our executive board as Recording Secretary.
It has been our privilege to have Lexa as our club president for the last 3 years. She is an exceptional leader who instills confidence and commitment in members by having a clear vision, showing empathy and being a strong coach. She is 100 percent authentic, open, consistent and always passionate about our club's mission and goals. Lexa is driven by a leadership style that inspires members to always give their best in each project we undertake. She gives advice in a caring and compassionate way, never succumbing to the power of her position, but always willing to help each of us in any way she can. She is an inspiring leader as well as wonderful mentor.
Our best wishes and good luck go out to Lexa in her new endeavor. She will bring the highest standards of leadership to her new role. We will miss her but know that others will appreciate her enthusiasm and dedication to GFWC, and we know she will always be there for us should we need her.
GFWC is an international women's organization founded in 1890 and dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the live of others through volunteer service. Collectively, we are Living the Volunteer Spirit.
GFWC Florida is in its second century of community service. In 1891 the Housekeeper's Club of Coconut Grove had formed. It joined the GFWC that year to become the first Florida club to do so. By 1900 several more Florida women's clubs joined.
