DHS’ JAG program encourages students

STAFF REPORT @dvillechief

The Donaldsonville High School JAG program continues to expose students at DHS to positive influences in the community and in surrounding areas. Since January, the program, coordinated by Tarleshia Miles, has taken student to LSU women’s basketball games where they were able to meet the players and also met Donaldsonville-native and Super Bowl Champion Jarvis Green. Green came to the school to speak to the students in the program to encourage them the sky is the limit and to continue to work hard.

The JAG program also helped host the school’s club day where Lowery Middle School students were able to come and learn about the DHS’ activities and clubs/

Miles said the program will continue and it’s focus is to help the students in the classrooms and outside of the classroom as much as possible.

“We just want to encourage and inspire these teens because they are our future,” Miles said.
