Dear Current and Past Members of Junior Auxiliary:

In 2015 the Junior Auxiliary of Hattiesburg was pleased to introduce the founding class of Crown Club.  As you may know, Crown Club’s purpose is to provide high school young ladies an opportunity to grow through service to others in our community.  The program promotes leadership in our youth and instills in them an appreciation for volunteering, as well as fosters interest among its members in the social, economic, educational, civic and cultural conditions around them.  In addition, Crown Club develops leadership and character, prepares members for good citizenship and helps them demonstrate a concern for others.  Our first-class consisted of 37 sophomore, junior, and senior girls from area high schools, and we continue to grow the size and scope of Crown Club as a result of the success and excitement our first two years generated.  Crown Club is a project of Hattiesburg Junior Auxiliary, and as such, the ladies of JA assist and oversee all aspects of Crown Club and are present at all meetings and service projects. 

Qualifications for membership are as follows:

  • Resides in Forrest or Lamar County

  • Entering 10th or 11th grade for the current school year

  • Has a minimum GPA of 2.75

  • Completes an application for membership and submits 1 reference by the deadline

  • Possesses leadership ability and interest in serving their community

  • Be selected for membership by a blind committee from the Junior Auxiliary of Hattiesburg

To maintain membership in good standing, the following is required:

  • Attend a minimum of 6 general meetings

  • Attend the Crown Club workshop in August 

  • Perform a minimum of 12 service hours

  • Pay annual dues ($40)

  • Maintain a 2.75 GPA

  • Attend all assigned projects unless prior arrangements have been approved


We would like your assistance in helping us identify young ladies who would be good candidates and potential members of the Crown Club of Hattiesburg.  Please have applicants fill out the application online by April 30, 2020.  Please note that late applications WILL NOT be accepted.  Thank you for your time and consideration in helping us.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
