We are sad to report that Jacquelyn Pierce GFWC International President for the 2006-2008 Administration passed away on November 17, 2019.

The 2006–2008 Administration focused on domestic violence awareness and prevention and oversaw a multitude of accomplishments. Under Jackie’s Administration, the Empowering Women (ceased), Public Policy/Legislation Committee (now Legislation/Public Policy Committee), and the Public Relations Committee (now the Communications/Public Relations Committee) were formed. Fifty states reported 9,310 projects completed with 96,657 club members participating, and total volunteer hours of 293,567. Notably, Jackie also oversaw a major renovation of 1734 N Street. Together with local designers and contractors, the downstairs foyer and bathrooms were refurbished and restored. Their beauty is still being enjoyed to this day.
