WHS and JHHS appreciative of JSB / Pledge 10 grants

Weston High School has received several Pledge 10 grants from Jonesboro State Bank this school year. The first grant was one written by the Jackson Parish School board for CPR and AED training equipment as well as a Stop the Bleed kit. With this equipment, high school students will be trained in life saving measures and proper techniques for CPR, first aid and AED usage.

The Weston Wolves baseball team also received a Pledge 10 grant for field maintenance equipment and a new storage building. Equipment is used to maintain the practice area at the school and around the cages housed on campus.

Mrs. Simpson’s second grade class received new tables and flexible seating. Flexible seating allows the students to move and wobble while at their desks. It increases blood flow to their brains, keeps them more alert and focused.

WHS would like to thank the Jonesboro State Bank for funding all of these activities through the Pledge 10 grant and for their continued support of the schools in Jackson Parish.
