Dear Community Members,Anna Brett

It is my honor and pleasure to serve as President of the Junior League of Kingston for
2014 – 2015. In 1977, I joined the Junior League of Kingston as a Provisional Member and have remained a member for 37 years.  During these years, I served on a variety of committees and served as President from 1990 – 1991.  Without a doubt, it has been a great experience, offering me many opportunities to use my leadership skills.

At this time, I continue to work with many different organizations in our community.  Presently, I serve on the boards of the Forsyth Nature Center, Friends of Historic Kingston, Woodland Pond, SUNY Ulster Board of Trustees, Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians, St, Joseph’s Parish Council and serve as a Lector and Eucharistic Minister at St. Joseph’s Church in Kingston.  I am busy, however I understand the importance of giving back to my community through volunteer work and service.

For 35 years, I was employed by the Kingston City School District, working as a teacher, Assistant Principal at Kingston High School and then Principal of Chambers Elementary School.  I also completed and interim principalship at Zena Elementary School after my retirement.  For me, it has always been about sharing my talents, knowledge and skills in my career work and in my community.  This, along with sharing time with my wonderful family has fulfilled my personal goals and dreams.

I am very proud to spend the next year as President of the Junior League of Kingston.  I welcome your help, participation and commitment to all our many activities, events and programs.

Anna M. Brett
President, Junior League of Kingston
