The Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG) program at Northview High School/Cumberland Academy recently was awarded first-place for its year-long service learning project, which was directed at assisting all local veterans.
All JAG programs within the state of Indiana were required to utilize the "Value of Veterans" service learning theme, which was directed at supporting veterans from across the state.
The JAG students at Northview/Cumberland opted to support local veterans by providing a free luncheon Nov. 12, 2011, and also with assisting veterans at the 2012 Veterans' Expo March 6, 2012.
Early this spring, students turned in a service binder to Indiana Department of Workforce Development that showcased their hard work and determination to assist those in need.
On April 20, JAG student Jessica Shields traveled to Indianapolis to compete as Northview/Cumberland's representative at the annual JAG Career Development Conference. At the conference, Shields learned her program had been awarded first-place for the project out of 84 schools.
