At times it’s easy to forget that JAG is so much more than time spent in the classroom. The program includes scholarship programs, community service projects, student government and much more. At the beginning of May the JAG-New Hampshire program hosted a Senior Award’s Lunch.
The advisory committee for JAG-New Hampshire was tasked with selecting 12 seniors, one from each JAG-NH program to receive a plaque honoring them as Outstanding Leaders. The twelve students represented each one of the schools participating in the JAG-New Hampshire program. Dr. Susan Lynch, First Lady of New Hampshire was on hand to present the plaques.
In addition to the outstanding leaders, the JAG-New Hampshire organization recognized eighteen students who received over $20,000 in scholarships. In attendance as a special guest was Father Sanderson. Father Sanderson is a huge contributor not only to the JAG New Hampshire program but nationally as well. He not only contributes funds for student scholarships every year, but for the past 4 years, his Foundation has supported 80% of the two Middle School programs in New Hampshire.
A group of students from Manchester Memorial attended the luncheon to present their winning Chapter Manual. The Chapter Manual is created by the students throughout the year. They catalog the events they have participated in, speakers they have listened to, the I&I Ceremony, community service and many other activities. It’s a compilation of the student’s activities within the program. The Chapter Manuals take a lot of time and creativity and highlight the year’s events not including academics.
