Girl Scout Mile Hi Council
Program emphases that Jones promotes at the Mile Hi Council include healthy living, the arts, science, technology, engineering, and math. Jones is a fitness enthusiast herself and believes that a positive body image and healthy habits learned in childhood will carry a woman through to healthier adulthood. She created the Women of Distinction program to bring together Girl Scouts and women who are corporate and community leaders to serve as role models for girls.
In true Girl Scout form, one of Jones’ driving passions in life is to serve her community. Jones was elected the first woman president of the Rotary Club in 1995 and now serves as a trustee of the Rotary Club Foundation. One of her most fulfilling endeavors was serving on the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, striving for equal rights for all Colorado citizens. Jones is also a member and a past president of the Women’s Forum of Colorado and serves as trustee and past chair for the Colorado Trust. She has been vice chair and trustee of Historic Denver and member and past president of the Minoru Yasui Community Volunteer Award Committee. Currently, Jones is a board member of the Samaritan Institute and the Mountain States Employers Council.
Jones was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, a fifth-generation Coloradoan whose grandmother’s grandfather, James Correy, came to Colorado with General Palmer as the lobbyist for the Denver and Rio Grande Railroads. Jones and her husband of 42 years have two sons and four grandchildren, one of whom is already a Girl Scout.
