We are saddened to hear of the passing of former JLB member and President, Beverly Hislop.

Beverly was one of the founding members of The Junior League of Bakersfield in 1965 and served as our second President in 1966 and 1967. She led or participated in many of our programs, including the construction of the Community House in 1966, serving as Chair of the Camellia Ball fundraiser, orchestrating the Saturday Adventurers' Program, and the Children's Book Fair which was co-sponsored with the Kern County Library.
