11/3: Today we will be wrapping up our efforts in our 1st ever Puerto Rican Power Drive at MCHS. Despite the efforts of what the most recent hurricanes have done to our country we as a JAG program and a Consolidated high school have came together and worked hard to do a one week power drive to raise donations for the hurricane survivors in Puerto Rico. One of our regional JAG programs, Seymour high school, has a very unique individual as a JAG specialist who is from Puerto Rico and has lost all of her personal belongings and right now it’s struggling to overcome the devastation of the hurricane to her home and family. And we as JAG students, far and wide, are united as a family through this program.
If one needs help, we all will help . We worked hard with our student body to seek donations for D batteries and bottled water, to gather and take to North Vernon Educational Training center and deliver to Belizabeth Vasquez, our Bi-lingual JAG Specialist, so she may take those back to Puerto Rico and help her community and family that are in need. We to Together as a school and JAG class have gathered over 30 cases of bottled water from local businesses and over 30 packs of D batteries to contribute to the donations that will be shipped back to Puerto Rico.
The pictures you see are our Career Association officers working with the Seymour Owls to pack up donations and head back to Seymour after an awesome day at our LDC.
Today we learned alot about being a leader and how to serve he people who need it the most. Thanks to our Outreach Coordinator Julie Thompson for putting this together for us and helping us network with other programs for our first ever, Leadership Development Conference.
