Tanner Crawford: Tanner is the head leader of the Service Leadership Branch of JAGS. His goal is to work on inclusion with all of the leaders in JAGS, and to establish a chain of command to further improve the JAGS Program. Along with this, he seeks to provide many opportunities for service in the community, and to help reintroduce the meaning of service to the members of the program.

To us, service is both giving back to our community and developing the self. It is an act of bringing people together through a common good.

As seen in this photo, JAGS students worked with the rest of Jackson High School to collect hundreds of non-perishables for the Adopt-A-Family program

Each of our JAGS staff is also a paragon of service, traveling all the way to Akron with several students in order to help volunteer at the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.

Ms. Kathryn Stone (above) is the service coordinator here in JAGS and thinks service is an imperative part of a student's upbrining.

Service over Self

"Take Action" is a key pillar of JAGS, but this idea is able to be seen in all aspects of life. In any form, all occupations work to take action and better the community. By learning how to serve those around us while in high school, JAGS students will be able to use their diverse perspectives in order to make a difference in any environment they are placed in. Service brings the community together and is why JAGS is so imperative in our modern society. 

JAGS Students will need to complete 80 hours of community service by Graduation

RAHAB and Hannah's House Donations

Hello All!

We are currently sophomores in JAGS and for our GO Night project, we are focusing on equal rights for all. With this, we are starting a drive running from October 12th until the 22nd to gather products to donate to organizations such as RAHAB and Hannah’s House. If possible, at your convenience could you play this short video explaining our cause at the beginning of class while you take attendance? Along with this, we would appreciate it if we could place a box in your room to collect donations and pop in every so often to give an incentive to whoever may have brought in items. An example of one of our flyers is attached below.

Thank you so much for your time!

-Blaire Blythe, Sarah Henson, Emily Nist, and Chloe Howard
