Congratulations to JAG student Montgomeree Porter who was awarded a scholarship to play basketball at St Mary's of the Woods! Terre Haute South JAG student Kayanna Greer signed a letter of intent with Robert Morris University (Peoria, IL) for basketball as well.
On Saturday, May 14, the Northview JAG program hosted it’s 3rd annual Veteran’s Picnic for Clay County Veterans.
Despite the cold weather, approximately twice as many veterans attended the event this year than last year.
Terre Haute South
Monday, May 16, 2016 JAG students participated in South Vigo High School's annual Welding Cookout put on by Mr. Dillion and his welding classes. JAG voted to have a cotton candy stand at the Welding Cookout to fund-raise for the South High School JAG program. Students worked 30 minute shifts making and selling cotton candy and water. It was a great success and they sold out within the first hour of the cookout. JAG profited $114.14 to go towards their JAG program. The students are undecided what they want to do with the money, but they have decided this will be something they do every year at the Welding Cookout. Great job South JAG!
Talent Show Collects Canned Goods for Back Pack Program
On May 19th JAG Students at North High School hosted a Talent Show to help raise donations for the back pack program at North High School. The entire event was student led. Students recruited talent during lunch and held auditions after school for three days. They made sure all needed equipment was obtained for both the dress rehearsal and the show.
The first act was JAG Student Montgomeree Porter. She opened the show with a tap dance and then introduced each additional act. In between acts she told jokes. We had seven other acts; A Rubik’s cube challenge, a song and dance number, a spoken word piece, a vocal/piano number, two soloists, and a vocal/instrumental duet. The show was amazing. The JAG students did a fantastic job. The JAG students collected can goods, pulled curtains, operated the stage lights, operated the sound equipment, and solved some technical issues.
The students were able to collect 52 can goods during the event. These can goods were all donated to the back pack program. They will be handed out during Memorial Day weekend.
