Destiny Shelton Smith Scholarship Awardee

Each academic year, Smith Scholars are selected by members of the JAG Board of Directors who invest considerable time in reviewing applications. Selecting recipients for a $1,000 scholarship is a challenging assignment since the vast majority of the applicants need, want and can use the scholarship to pursue a collegiate education and/or their career goals. In Kansas, Destiny Shelton was one of the recipients of the Smith Scholarship.

JAG-Kansas First Year Success

The Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) program successfully completed its first year in the state of Kansas. During this past school year, JAG had 25 programs across the state of Kansas. The great results achieved over the first year have made it possible for JAG to double its programs for the 2014-2015 school year. The launch of JAG-Kansas is one of the most successful launches in the history of JAG. Expanding the program has made it possible for Newton to have an additional JAG program, which will include Chisholm Middle School.
