BREVARD, N.C. Maggie Jones of Brevard was elected to the office of state president for the Junior American Legion Auxiliary at their state convention on April 13-15. There are 768 junior members in North Carolina.
Jones was endorsed by Unit 88 Monroe Wilson of the American Legion. Jones has been a member of the auxiliary since it was organized.
She has held all the local offices and four offices on the state level before being elected to the office of president.
Jones is in the eighth grade at Brevard Middle School. She is active in the chorus, the show chorus, a member of the tennis team and a member of the soccer team.

The Junior Activities program prepares girls under the age of 18 to become active adult members of the American Legion by providing positive volunteer experiences that instill the ideals of the Auxiliary. These young ladies develop leadership skills while having fun and will hopefully become the future leaders of the organization.
