“We are very grateful for our partnership with United Way/Ready 4 Service. The purpose of Ready 4 Service is to provide students with opportunities and exposure to better excel in student-of-the-year panel interviews. The year-long partnership began with tours to ULM, the Town Hall of Jonesboro, and multiple Zooms on “Community Conversation” topics. Our students gained a deeper knowledge of Louisiana’s history, legislation and its powers, community issues/solutions, communication skills, and most importantly self-confidence. We look forward to partnering with United Way next year”-Ms. Copeland, Principal.
