Kormeri Sohui Jones

An Enterprise girl is the winner of a virtual talent contest.

Kormeri Sohui Jones was selected by nationwide vote for the “Military Kids Have Talent.”

Jones was announced as the winner of the seven to nine-year-old age group in the Elizabeth Dole Foundation’s “Military Kids Have Talent” virtual contest. Jones performed on the piano. 

After two weeks of voting by the American public, Jones was announced as a winner in the “Military Kids Have Talent” grand finale, hosted by actor Jocko Sims.

The winners performed as a part of an hour-long segment that premiered on the Elizabeth Dole Foundation’s Facebook page. The national vote determined winners from 36 finalists, all children and survivors of military service members and veterans.   

“We created this virtual opportunity because COVID-19 caused many celebrations and milestones to be canceled for military kids and we are delighted by the enthusiastic nationwide response and participation,” said Steve Schwab, CEO of the Elizabeth Dole Foundation. “We congratulate our five talented winners and thank Americans from coast to coast who supported the contestants with their votes.”
