A Corinth youth working toward the highest Girl Scout award has formed a new service organization.
“I felt like teen age girls in Alcorn County could really benefit from being part of a service organization that would allow them to research and learn about the needs of the residents of Alcorn County,” said Olivia Knight, who is earning the Gold Award. “That’s when I decided to approach the ladies of the Junior Auxiliary of Corinth to see if they would partner with me in creating a Crown Club.”
Knight is a sophomore at Corinth High School, and a member of Girl Scout Troop 20003 under Beverly Grisham.
The Junior Auxiliary pledged its support, and the project was also approved by the Girl Scout Council. There are 14 charter members, and each area high school is represented.
“They have a heart for service and are so talented,” Knight said. “In the process, we are creating strong friendships, developing leadership and organizational skills, and have the benefit of being mentored by the wonderful ladies of the Corinth Junior Auxiliary.”
Charter members are Olivia Knight, president; Grier Moss, vice president; Lynleigh Crabb, vice president; Melanie Dunn, social media chairman; Caroline Grisham, chaplain; Annalee Turner, secretary; Kate Bailey, secretary; Julianne Parker, treasurer; Chesne Joyner, treasurer; Kelsi Watkins, Lauren Phillips, Grace Ann Davis, Alden Tomlinson, and Molly Mitchell.
Jamie Jones serves as the Corinth Crown Club Junior Auxiliary Chairman, and Alesha Knight is an adviser.
