DC Trip Leaves an Impression

Happy Monday!  Presidents’ Day is kind of a weird holiday and that’s just the debate over how to spell it!  Presidents, President’s or Presidents’?  (I’m going with the plural possessive since it’s general thought of a day to honor the 45 people who have served/are serving as Commander in Chief).  Can anyone connect dots between this holiday and mattress sales?  Also, schools and banks are closed but most people have to work.  Do you?

I have no problem punching in the clock as I’ll continue to use this forum to share JTG student testimonials from their recent trip to Washington DC.  Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) hosts a National Student Leadership Academy which draws nearly a thousand students from around the country including from its affiliate in Tennessee.  Fairview High School JTG specialist Vickie Parsons in Williamson County always makes it a priority to raise money (about $1,500 per student) to host a a handful of students.  Here’s Fairview High School senior Emma Lavendar (she is 3rd from the left in the picture above) reflecting on her experience:

My trip to Washington D.C. for the JAG Leadership conference was an unbelievable experience.  I learned so many things about leadership and how to be successful in life.  I went with my school and a couple other students in my grade and we stayed at a hotel with most of the other JAG groups.  I had doubts about what it would be like, but overall I had the best time of my life.  I loved staying in a hotel with everyone else because I created so many friendships with other teenagers that inspire to be successful in life.  Other than the amazing lessons we learned and activities we did, we had a lot of free time sightseeing and to tour the big city.  The trip overall was one of my favorite memories of high school and I encourage everybody to go.  I made so many unforgettable memories and lifelong relationships that I will cherish for years.

Emma Lavender
Fairview H.S. ’17

I’m so proud of Emma and her classmates for how they represented JTG on this trip.  All the students were well behaved and respectful.  Take a bow JTG specialist Vickie Parsons for creating this everlasting memory.  Another example of how JTG improves young lives forever.
