Clarissa Bors Featured For Jr. Auxiliary Leadership
Clarissa Bors of Dorchester is the focal point in a feature story just published by the Friend Sentinel.
The DHS junior is profiled because on top of her busy schedule balancing school, student council and Longhorn athletics, she is also extremely active in the American Legion Junior Auxiliary.
“I feel it is important to be active in school and your community,” Bors told the Friend paper. “I enjoy helping others and showing my pride for our country.”
As a life-long member of the Junior Auxiliary, she has participated in many activities in support of the U.S., those in service and veterans -- including making favors for veterans, Poppy Day events, Flag Burning ceremonies, Memorial Day services and holiday programs. Bors has held unit, district and state offices, and this past year she was the 2013-14 Nebraska Department President.
Bors got involved with the Auxiliary with help of her grandparents, Robert and Marva Kasl. The duo have been actively involved in the Dorchester Post 264 Legion and Auxiliary for several years.
This past August, Bors attended the Junior Auxiliary Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, where she held the office of Northwest Division Vice-President and was elected as National Historian.
“I’m excited to continue supporting our country and the ability to share my knowledge about the American Legion Auxiliary organization,” she said.
Girls who are in school, grades K-12, and would like to be involved with the Junior Auxiliary should contact Clarissa for information on how to join.
