When not participating in a sport, he will be found leading the crowd in the student section. He is an excellent student and has earned multiple honors, both in the classroom and outside of it. In working with Jackson for so many years, most recently as a counselor, I’ve come to know a responsible, outgoing individual who has a positive impact on those around him. He is humble, has been blessed with a serving heart, and takes a genuine interest in making his community a better place, which is evident in his many community service activities.”
Mrs. Griffin: “There’s never been a time, in the six years that I’ve been blessed with Jackson as a student, that he hasn’t put 110% of himself into everything he does. Jackson is an amazing young man.”
