At the 2018 Annual Meeting, the Junior League of Greensboro, North Carolina, Inc. announced that the 22nd recipient of the annual Kathleen Price Bryan Award is Teresa Marie Russell.
Each year, the League recognizes a member who demonstrates tremendous dedication to both the Junior League of Greensboro and to the community at large. The award, first presented in 1985, is given in memory of and to honor Kathleen Price Bryan, founder of the Junior League of Greensboro in 1926. The recipient exemplifies the standards set by Bryan in the generous giving of herself to our community.
Teresa Marie Russell is an invested Greensboro community member, dedicated volunteer, and former middle school teacher. She is a devoted wife, mother, and friend.
Russell is a co-founder and board member of the Chris Westmoreland Annual Memorial Golf Tournament, raising funds for an endowment that provides scholarships to St. Pius X Work Camp participants. The tournament is in memory of a lifetime member of St. Pius X who passed away in 2013 after a courageous battle with a rare form of cancer in his spinal cord. Russell has actively participated in raising over $30,000 for this organization.
Russell is also a valued member of the Guilford Battle Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR), focused on promoting patriotism, learning and preserving American History, and contributing to the education and care of children. She was the 2017 recipient of the chapter’s Outstanding Junior Award for her service to the organization. She has converted more than 100 years of chapter records from paper to digital, serves as a mentor to new members, and supports various chapter service committees.
In addition to the NSDAR, Russell serves on the St. Pius X Hospitality Ministry, was the 2016-17 room parent coordinator at Holy Trinity Day School, and is the President of the local Chi Omega Alumnae Chapter.
