Fremont Resident Ends One Year Reign
by Malia Morris
Jennifer Anderson, 20, of Fremont recently completed her reign as the California State Job's Daughters Grand Bethel Honored Queen. Anderson was selected last June at the California State Job's Daughters Convention, called Grand Bethel, held in Bakersfield. She served a term of one year and presided over this year's convention in Fresno.
In Job's Daughters, the presiding officer of each city group is called the "Honored Queen." Each of these young women serves as the president of that city group, called a Bethel. Anderson was elected to represent Fremont Job's Daughters for 2003-2004 and of the forty young women elected by city groups throughout the state, she was chosen to be Grand Bethel Honored Queen of the State of California, a position that hasn't been held in the Bay Area for nearly 30 years.
At the state convention, Job's Daughters share pride in membership of an organization that teaches public speaking, planning, leadership, and teamwork. All girls are invited to participate in competitions such as instrumental and vocal music, sewing, arts and crafts, volleyball, drill team, dance, membership, travel, ritual memorization, essay writing, and scholarship.
Grand Bethel Honored Queen Anderson represented local Bethel No. 253, Fremont and the state organization at statewide functions as an ambassador for Job's Daughters, promoting the virtues, values, and sisterhood of the organization. Jennifer, who received two substantial Job's Daughter scholarships last year, has been attending California State University, Hayward studying Liberal Studies. She continued to attend school and maintained a part time job while traveling throughout the state and representing California at the International Job's Daughters Convention in Chicago.
