The Junior League of Monroe chose to honor former JLM president and sustainer Martha Carrick Ryan with the naming of a reading room at the Jefferson Elementary School library. Each year, the Junior League chooses a local school and throughout the school year, leaguers on the TLC Committee take part in activities and enrichments at the school.

Ryan was not only a member of the Junior League of Monroe, but also the founder of the Northeast Louisiana Children’s Museum. Naming the reading room in honor of Ryan was just one small way the Junior League felt it could help preserve Ryan’s legacy and honor her contributions to children’s education and advocacy throughout the region.

The dedication took place on June 5, and members of the Junior League joined faculty, staff, students and parents of Jefferson Elementary for the ceremony.
