Sondra Barnes, Chairperson for the Greater Chatham’s Junior Miss program is proud to announce its Class of 2011 Junior Miss to be presented on Saturday, April 3, 2010 at Sol C. Johnson High School.
Greater Chatham’s Junior Miss (GCJM) program is affiliated with and franchised by Georgia’s Junior Miss (GJM) and America’s Junior Miss (AJM). GCJM is a scholarship program for high school junior young women (public and private schools) from all racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds from the following counties: Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty.
AJM is not a beauty pageant, but is a scholarship program that rewards overall excellence. Last year, AJM awarded more than $33 millions in scholarship opportunities to young women on the local, state and national levels.
This is the first Junior Miss program for the southeastern part of Georgia. Greater Chatham’s Junior Miss Scholarship Program is proud to call Savannah our home. This year 12 Junior Miss contestants from the various high schools will converge in our “Host City” to compete for cash scholarship and the chance to be the first “Greater Chatham’s Junior Miss” and “Savannah Junior Miss”.
Each of the twelve (12) young women have selected a “Little Sister” to follow in her footsteps.
