Longtime local citizen keeps on giving back

By Alexis Draut ADraut@CalhounTimes.comMay 18, 2019

Helen Jones has been involved in Calhoun for years, organizing a golf tournament fundraiser, participating as a contestant in Dancing with the Stars and volunteering with local charities. But one of her most significant contributions is starting the Sequoyah Ball.

Born in South Carolina and raised in Georgia, Jones met her husband at Emory and when they were raising a family, they decided to move to Calhoun. After making the transition, Jones didn’t hesitate getting involved in the local community, making the Calhoun Woman’s Club one of her top commitments.

Jones was a member of the club for decades, and in fact, she was one of the women who started the Sequoyah Ball – along with Cathy Matthews and Molly Jenkins. Not only did her involvement with the club get her connected and provide her with immediate friends, but it allowed her to also give back.
