Jonesboro State Bank donates new scoreboard to J-H Middle School

For over five years Jonesboro-Hodge Middle School has been forced to deal with an antiquated way of keeping score. That is all in the past now as thanks to the generosity of Jonesboro State Bank, the J-HMS gym has a beautiful, state of the art, scoreboard hanging on the wall. With Thurston Allen of the Jonesboro State Bank in attendance, the Middle Schooler’s new scoreboard was unvield this past Thursday in the contest against Winnfield. 

“On behalf of Jonesboro-Hodge Middle School, I would like to thank Mr. Thurston Allen with Jonesboro State Bank for their generous donation to fund our new wireless scoreboard. The middle school had been without a working scoreboard for 5+ years,” said J-HMS Principal Danielle Copeland. “While we know academics takes precedence, oftentimes sports are what keep students motivated in school. Therefore, I requested a donation from Jonesboro State Bank this summer, in which they did not hesitate to help. That is a true example of community partnerships. We are very appreciative and look forward to working with them in the future.”
