Congratulations Hannah Tatom

 

The Krewe has a new scholarship recipient. Hannah Tatom is our 2015 recipient, attending University of south Alabama.

Hannah writes "I cannot thank you enough for the opportunity the Navarre Krewe of Jesters has given me to experience not only college, but joining a sorority, Airforce ROTC, baptist campus ministry club, students today alumni club, and future educators of America club as well. My journey at South Alabama has been as amazing thus far and I cannot wait to see where my path leads me. Tomorrow I am trying out to be the school mascot, and next semester I will officially be a member of the Airforce ROTC program. I am thrilled to be doing so well in all my classes and am happy to announce I currently have all As. I will continue to keep you posted and hope to hear from you all very soon!"

The Krewe Wants You

Are You Doing Your Part?

Did you know that to be a member in good standing every Krewe member must be an active part of a Krewe Committee? Everything that makes this Krewe function from funds brought in to put on the Parade and award our scholarship, planning for Krewe events, maintaining our float, even Krewe social functions requires active Krewe particpation. If you are not currently actively particpating in one or more of the committees now is the time to get active.
