"Crowning Moments Last a Lifetime" was the message to members of Junior Auxiliary of Taney County (JATC) at the 73rd Annual Education Conference held May 2-3 at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Destin, FL. Over six hundred ladies were in attendance at this year’s event, four of them from Taney County.

Junior Auxiliary is a national non-profit organization that encourages its members to render charitable services, which are beneficial to the general public with particular emphasis on children. JATC was established by a group of caring, enthusiastic women in 1997 and continues to grow and thrive throughout Taney County. Volunteers work tirelessly throughout the year on a variety of projects that focus on local children and families in need of assistance.

JA of Taney County is a part of the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries (NAJA), a non-profit organization founded in 1941 with Headquarters in Greenville, MS. NAJA has more than 15,500 active, associate and life members in 98 chapters in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee.

This year’s conference was packed with entertainment, education, and networking with other chapters from across the Mid-South. JATC representatives enjoyed speakers such as Dr. Tim Elmore, bestselling author and President of Growing Leaders and an expert in the field of understanding and connecting with Generation Y; Marilyn Morris, founder of Aim for Success; and Steve Azar, singer, songwriter, producer and Artist in Residence at Delta State University.

Junior Auxiliary chapters all over the Mid-South are working more than ever before to increase awareness of children in need and the benefits of caring today to create character tomorrow.
