Shermanita Cotton
Ypsilanti Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc President



Welcome to the home page of the Ypsilanti Chapter of Jack and Jill of America Inc. We are the home chapter of the 20th National President, Alice Leigh Peoples. We are “Mission Minded Mothers” focused on the development of a fully integrated child through superior programming centered on leadership development, cultural awareness, financial literacy, health, civic, recreational, educational, social, and community service. It is the aim of the members of the Ypsilanti Chapter to seek for all children that which we seek for our own.

Over 30 years ago, a group of ladies came together because they wanted to make a difference in the lives of their children and in the lives of the children in the community. They were small but very mighty. Their legacy lives on because their voices were heard in the community. As the president of the Ypsilanti Chapter, I want to help us continue that legacy of service that was started 30 years ago. I firmly believe in the words of Bill Owens that “True leadership lies in guiding others to success–in ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.” It is our desire to continue to focus on those founding principles and initiatives that will prepare our members and youth with the “Power to Make a Difference” in our community and in the lives of all children.
