MADISON – Anfernee Jones, a junior at Bob Jones High School, has been selected “Young Citizen of the Month.”

STAR 99.1-FM and the Community Awareness for Youth (CAFY) organization sponsor the recognition program.

“Anfernee Jones was selected as a ‘Youth of the Year’ candidate to represent the J.E. Williams Boys & Girls Club for his outstanding commitment to volunteer service and helping others succeed,” Josh Bray said. Bray works as assistant program director for Boys & Girls Clubs of North Alabama.

Jones’ honor acknowledges his outstanding community service and commitment to academics, Bray said.

Jones participates in the track team at Bob Jones. He serves as a youth mentor at Williams Boys & Girls Club and devotes time to volunteer at Triana Public Library and the police department and fire station in Triana.

At Triana Cumberland Presbyterian Church in America, Jones is president of the youth department, secretary of Sunday School and sings in the choir. His mother is Anitia Jones.

Anfernee Jones enjoys training for Bob Jones Track Team and serving as a community volunteer.

In Spring 2016, Jones plans to pursue dual enrollment in college during his senior year at Bob Jones. At this time, he is undecided on a college major or campus location.

Agencies and businesses that support the Community Awareness for Youth program include Huntsville Police Department, City of Huntsville Office of Multicultural Affairs and Human Relations Commission, Huntsville Utilities, Huntsville City Schools and Madison County Schools.

“We are searching for nominees in grades 7-12 who have gone above and beyond serving their community, congregation, school, friends or family,” Bray said. Adults affiliated with a civic organization, the clergy or a school system can nominate a teenager.
