Jones earns March of Greatness honors

Carrington Jones is named the Marine Corps March of Greatness award winner for Week 9.

COLUMBIA (WACH) --- Throughout this Friday Night Rivals season, The Marines Corps will recognize an exceptional student member of the home team’s band with challenge coin prior to each game.

One of Marine's many traditions, dating back to World War One, is the carrying of the challenge coin. Coins are often presented by high-ranking officers for a job well done, which is a great honor.

This week’s Friday Night Rivals Marine Corps March of Greatness Award goes to Carrington Jones!

Jones is the woodwind section leader for the Raider Rubber Band playing the flute and piccolo. She also participates in symphonic band.

Outside of school she also donates to the Red Cross and volunteers as a tutor. Jones is also a member of the JROTC and a member of the marksmanship team.

Congratulations Carrington!
