Jazmyne Joseph is representing Atlanta Chapter 5 as the Chapter Queen and is competing for the title of National Queen in the National Montford Point Marine Association, Inc Annual Queen Contest Fundraiser. The Queen Contest is a fundraiser held annually to raise funds for programs aimed at preserving the legacy of the Original Montford Point Marines, including but not limited to scholarships, and activities that educate the public about the history of the Montford Point Marines. The Montford Point Marines are the first African Americans to enlist in the Marine Corps from 1942-1949. Because of segregation laws, they were not allowed to train with their white counter parts at Parris Island South Carolina. Instead, they were made to train at a makeshift Camp near Camp Lejeune North Carolina called Camp Montford Point. Despite the hardships of having to build their own training facility and having to prove themselves worthy, nearly 20,000 African American Marines would serve at Camp Montford Point proving that African Americans were just as worthy of the title Marine.
Jazmyne is the daughter of two proud Marine Veterans, and she credits the service and sacrifice of the Montford Point Marines for paving the way for her parents to be able to serve and achieve success in the Marine Corps. She is currently a senior at Louisiana State University where she is majoring in Biological Sciences, Pre-Med with the goal of becoming an OBGYN where she will focus on women’s health, particular in minority communities. She is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, Minority Sciences in Pre-Health and Pre-Dental Society Black LSU, Senator for Student Government for Senior College of Science, and Louisiana State University Black Student Union. Growing up in a military community, Jazmyne learned the value of volunteering. She has committed over three hundred hours of community service with several organizations including Legacy Building Mentors Incorporated, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc, Girls on the Run, and currently works as a Scribe at a local emergency room. Jazmyne is extremely honored and humbled at the opportunity to represent Atlanta Chapter 5 as the Chapter Queen and is excited to help raise funds that will provide educational opportunities for young men and women as well as bring more awareness to the service and sacrifice of the Original Montford Point Marines. She is counting on your support to win the title of National Queen.
