Junior Auxiliary of Obion County introduces Crown Club
Posted: Wednesday, October 17, 2012 8:00 pm
Junior Auxiliary of Obion County recently introduced the first-ever Crown Club of Obion County with 26 members.
Crown Club consists of young women of excellence and integrity who will be a great role model for the community and asset to the Junior Auxiliary organization.
These young ladies are from Union City High School, Obion County Central High School and South Fulton High School. They will promote community service in the area through lifestyle and actions. Members will have many opportunities to serve, working alongside current Junior Auxiliary members to carry out existing projects, as well as organizing and orchestrating a Crown Club service project of their very own. This is an opportunity to pave the way for other young ladies in the many, many years ahead. New member nominations will be considered at the beginning of every school year with nominations being submitted by both current Crown Club and Junior Auxiliary members.
Members are expected to maintain a 2.5 grade point average, attend monthly meetings and perform at least 20 hours of volunteer work in their community throughout the school year. Crown Club not only fosters interest in its members in the social, economic, educational, civic and cultural conditions about them, but also allows them to meet the community service hours requirement for the Tennessee Scholars program.
Crown Club members are advised and supervised each year by a Junior Auxiliary committee. This year’s committee advisors consist of Ashley Martin, Katie Creswell, Lindsay Maddox and Tina Adams.
The Crown Club slogan is “Caring and Responsibility for Others Who are in Need” and when combined with the focus of Junior Auxiliary organization, these girls will be shining a new light on community and child health and welfare.
Junior Auxiliary of Obion County is part of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries (NAJA) which is a non-profit organization that encourages members to render charitable services which are beneficial to the general public, with a particular emphasis on children. NAJA currently has 99 active chapters across eight states. The Obion County chapter has been a part of the national association for 35 years with many more years and service projects to come.
