Shreveport, LA. The Sustainer of the Year award is an honor bestowed in recognition of a member who continues to epitomize the mission of the Junior League after leaving active membership. The Junior League of Shreveport-Bossier is proud to recognize Claudia Fritze Oliver as the 2011-2012 Sustainer of the Year, and call her one of their own.
As an active member of the JLSB, Claudia worked many years in the puppet troupe, served as Chairperson of the Red River Revel and Chairman of Bargain Haul. Perhaps her most famous role is as “Rummaging Rita” promoting the Bargain Haul fundraiser!

Claudia is a past recipient of the Community Renewal Bridge Award and the March of Dimes Tiffany Award.
States Claudia of her experience as an active member of the Junior League, “It’s hard work and lots of hours, but it is all worth every minute of it!”
