JAG Celebrates 10th Anniversary of Investing in Indiana's Future Workforce

By Kara Kavensky

Indiana’s Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) program is one of several important initiatives under the Department of Workforce Development (DWD). Commissioner Steve Braun led the 10-year anniversary ceremony in the north atrium of the Statehouse by welcoming special guest speakers Governor Eric Holcomb, Vincennes University President Chuck Johnson, Senator Dennis Kruse and JAG graduates Elijah Tribbett and Desiree Steinkamp. Sixty current JAG students, as well as JAG specialists, were also in attendance.

Students in Jonesport Shovel for Their Neighbors

Some spots in Downeast Maine got up to a foot of new snow. That means more shoveling. But kids from Jonesport-Beals High School volunteered to help those in their community that couldn’t clear their driveways and sidewalks on their own.

Ellic Mottram, JMG Specialist at the high school says, “This is their day off. They’re outside of school. They could have had the time free to themselves and their volunteering to contribute to the community.”
