The North Prestonwood Chapter of the National Charity League, Inc. recently honored the class of 2018 at its 4th annual Senior Presentation ceremony on Feb. 25. Fifteen seniors who successfully completed the NCL program were recognized by parents, families and other members of the chapter.


The formal event included sentiments from both the Junior and Senior classes, tributes by the President of the North Prestonwood Chapter and a video presentation for each senior. Each honoree was escorted across the stage by their parents and “presented” to the chapter, followed by a special father/daughter dance. High schools attended by the class of 2018 include Celina High School, Frisco High School, Prosper High School, Reedy High School and Wakeland High School.


The North Prestonwood Chapter was founded in April of 2013 and is comprised of patronesses (mothers) and ticktockers (daughters) who work together to address the philanthropic needs of the communities, including Frisco, Prosper and Dallas. The chapter has over 225 members and provides hands-on volunteer support to over 20 local philanthropies including Frisco Family Services, Special Olympics, Hope’s Door, Ronald McDonald House, Miracle League, Bethlehem Place and Cornerstone.


The mission of NCL is to foster mother-daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences. Over the course of a 6-year program, these seniors have created memories that will last a lifetime.
