Pillars of America Mission Statement
The Pillars of America speaker series presented by Juneau Glacier Valley Rotary brings to Juneau’s youth and the general public distinguished American citizens who share relevant personal experiences shaped by the freedoms offered in our country, or as a result of their endurance through difficult circumstances. These individuals demonstrate the highest standards of integrity and courage and their messages are important to all of us.
The 2019 “Pillars of America” will take place during three separate luncheons at Centennial Hall on Wednesdays April 17th, 24th and May 1st  of 2019.
