Three students represented the Crossett High School (CHS) JAG program at the state leadership competition in Little Rock, on the campus of the University of Arkansas—Little Rock recently.

JAG stands for “Jobs for America’s Graduates.” JAG is a class for seniors that will prepare them for their future and career. Crossett High School added the JAG program in the 2017-18 school year.

The students competed in various types of competitions including interview, public speaking, and math skills. Bryce Sanders, Terry Dean and Jessie Hooker attended.

JAG specialist Kristi Clanton said, “This year was our first year to attend competition, and it was a learning experience for us. Next year we will start to prepare earlier, in hopes of bringing home a win.”

Bryce Sanders, the President of JAG Career Association, said, “JAG is an amazing leadership experience, I had a lot of fun!”

Sanders competed in employability skills. He submitted a resume and cover letter, filled out an application and completed an interview with three judges.

Terry Dean represented CHS JAG in public speaking and Jessie Hooker competed in math skills.
