Hi, my name is James Jones and I am the Career Counselor for Graves and Marshall County. I wanted to tell you a little about myself!

Where I'm From: I am originally from the Webster County and Providence area

Why I joined the Guard: I joined the Guard three weeks after I saw our country attacked on 9-11-01.

My Hobbies: I really enjoy restoring old trucks and spending time with my family.

My High School Career: I was a 2 time State qualifier in Wrestling at the 130lbs weight class and I finished 7th in the state my senior year.

My Family: My wonderful wife, Pam, works at Murray State University and she is working on a Masters Degree. My daughter, Sumer Starks, and my son, Keaton Starks are also attending Murray State.

What I like best about working in the Jackson Purchase: I love working with the Murray ROTC, and this area of the state is very patriotic, that is really nice to see!

I come from three generations that have served in major conflicts Great grandfather served in WWI grandfather served in WWII and father served in Vietnam. I was at Cherry Point North Marine base in North Carolina after father had finished his last tour in Vietnam.

I have grown up watching what the service can do to help grow and shape people. I will be very happy to share my insights with you.
