Manteca Rainbow Girl Brittney Clements is now a state officer.
She was appointed “Member of the Grand Executive Committee, Historian and Representative to South Carolina and Virginia” at the recent state Convention for the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls.
Clements, a 2010 graduate of Sierra High, will now spend the year traveling and visiting the various Assemblies throughout the state. Included will also be trips to the jurisdictions of South Carolina and Virginia as she represents California.
A Rainbow Girl since 2003, Clements has served in all but three offices during that span. She’s also had perfect attendance for the last five years.
Clemens has been a member of the state choir, an observer helper, and an aide and assistant to the state leadership at the Grand Assembly or state convention.
She also comes from a Masonic family. Her father is a mason with Tyrian Lodge, Manteca, while her brother is the current Master Councilor of the Manteca chapter, Order of DeMolay.
Her volunteer efforts include Relay for Life and other charitable activities. She’s received multiple assembly service honors and is a recipient of the Grand Cross of Color service award, which is Rainbow’s highest individual award of honor.
In addition, Clements is a past Divisional Sweetheart, Princess for the Northern California DeMolay Association, and is an active member of Jobs Daughters, Bethel 110, in Tracy.
She currently works as an administrative assistant for the Department of Defense.
Clemens was the recipient of a Rainbow Girls scholarship, and is attending college with the goal of obtaining a degree in business. She hopes to secure a permanent job with the government.
The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls is a community service organization. Those involved learn such values as faith, hope, and charity while putting those teachings into practice in their daily lives.
Clements continues the legacy of Manteca Rainbow Girls who have achieved special state recognition.
The organization has been around since 1922. Former Rainbow Girls include actresses Dawn Wells, Lee Meriwether, and Donna Reed; comedienne Ruth Buzzi; NASA astronaut Dorothy “Dottie” Metcalf-Lindenburger; former Olympic skier and inspirational speaker Jill Kinmont; Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor; and U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe, to name a few.
