Foundation Member at Large
Our twin daughter and son were 2 years old in 2002 when I was initiated into the Indianapolis Chapter. Calyn Ellice and Gregory Lloydon, now 17 year old juniors in high school, are the final two of five children (Christian Dione, Candyce Marie, and Carah Lynne) born into my blessed marriage of 30 years (as of this past September 26th) to my husband and best friend, Gregory Howard Coleman. Together as a family, we made the decision for me to SAY YES to this amazing organization. While we knew that it was a “mother’s organization” we also knew that it would be a collective family effort for me to learn and serve at a level of excellence. I am filled with pride as I recall the leadership journey of our children in the following offices: Chapter Teen Vice President, Foundation Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Chaplain and even as Mid-Western Regional Teen Parliamentarian; and my own leadership journey serving as standing committee Chair, Ad-Hoc Chair, Lead Teen Advisor and on to being elected to serve as Indianapolis Chapter Board-At-Large Member and as a two-term Chapter President. During my four years as Chapter President my husband served dutifully as the Indianapolis Chapter Father’s Auxiliary Chair. The fellowship and love of the mothers, fathers, teens, tweens and children in this organization are the reason why I continue to lead and serve regionally and nationally. Most recently as the Immediate Past National Membership Committee Co-Chair and now currently as the Mid-Western Region Foundation Member At Large. My family and I have truly come to love Jack and Jill of America, Inc.
