Twenty JAG graduates were selected to receive a $1,000 scholarship and one JAG alum was selected to receive a $2,000 scholarship. These twenty-one outstanding JAG graduates have achieved the high honor of 2017 Smith Scholar. This achievement should be listed in the Smith Scholar’s resume or when applications request a listing of awards, scholarships, or recognitions. Only 20 JAG graduates in the Class of 2017 will be able to use the Smith Scholar designation.

The Kenneth M. Smith Scholarship Fund and the Smith Scholars Program were established by the JAG Board of Directors to recognize the extraordinary leadership and service of the President and Chief Executive Officer of Jobs for America’s Graduates, Inc., Kenneth M. Smith.  The number of scholarships to be awarded is dependent on the donations to the Kenneth M. Smith Scholarship Fund.  Funding for the KMS Scholarship Fund has come from JAG Board members as well as Western Union Foundation, Lillian Goldman Trust, Strategic Partnerships and CERI.  From 2009-2017, the Fund has awarded 113 scholarships for a total of $167,000.

Northview JAG Hosts Veterans Picnic

On May 7th, the Northview JAG students hosted a free picnic for Clay County Veterans and their families.  This was the 4th year for the picnic.  The students created a flyer which they used to promote the event.  They also worked with local Veteran Organizations and Nursing Home facilities to promote the event to their residents. This year's turnout was the best so far as the students served lunch to approximately 80 people.
    


At the event, the students collected names and mailing addresses of the attendees and will continue their tradition of sending cards on Veteran’s day.
