Jan Bass

“Bass has served as a member of the Richmond Hill Exchange Club, where she recently held the position of vice president for the 2010-11 term,” the release states. “She has also served nearly seven years as a cheerleading coach, activity coordinator and member of the Richmond Hill Recreation Association. As a resident of Richmond Hill, she actively participates with the Richmond Hill-Bryan County Chamber of Commerce as an ambassador to promote an entrepreneur-friendly community.”
