JCISD Special Education Millage Renewal on May Ballot
Vote on May 2! The May 2 ballot will include a question regarding a renewal of the Special Education Millage for school districts in the Jackson County ISD service area. This is not a new tax. JCISD and its partner districts have, in part, been able to meet the needs of special education students because of voter-supported enhancement millages that began in 1997. Currently, more than 4,000 students ages birth-to-26 receive some form of special education services.
A taxpayer who owns a home with a market value of $100,000 (taxable value of $50,000) would pay $77.04 per year or $6.42 per month in renewed millage.
For more information or to review the Q&A, visit www.jcisd.org/millage.

Northwest High School Students Excel at Junior Achievement CEO Challenge
Northwest High School students recently participated in the Junior Achievement CEO Challenge and proved their entrepreneurial skills by making it to the top "Entrepreneurial Nine." The competition was held on Saturday, and all three teams from Northwest High School made it to the top.
Zach Tumlinson and Sam MacMillan with their innovative idea, "Finance King," demonstrated their expertise in financial management, which helped them secure a spot in the top nine. John and Mathew Horvath Frias, with their project "Digital Wisdom," won third place in the competition and received $250, along with a Chromebook for Mathew. Aryeman Singh and Landen Little's project "Sports United" was awarded the most innovative idea, and they won $500.
The CEO Challenge is a great platform for students to showcase their skills and creativity. The competition provides an opportunity for students to learn about entrepreneurship and encourages them to pursue their dreams. The students from Northwest High School not only demonstrated their entrepreneurial skills but also their teamwork and dedication.
We would like to congratulate Zach Tumlinson, Sam MacMillan, John and Mathew Horvath Frias, Aryeman Singh, and Landen Little for their fantastic performance at the JA CEO Challenge. We are proud of their accomplishments and wish them all the best for their future endeavors.

National Honor Society Scholarship Semifinalist
The National Honor Society (NHS) announced that Braylee Bevier, a high school senior at Northwest High School and member of NHS, has been selected as an NHS Scholarship semifinalist.
Since 1946, more than $21 million in scholarships have been awarded to outstanding NHS
senior members to support college access and student success. The scholarship program is
supported by the parent organization of NHS, the National Association of Secondary School
In the 100+ years since NHS was founded in 1921, members have been making a difference
in their schools and communities, and the NHS Scholarship is NASSP’s way of recognizing
the most exceptional of these student leaders. Recipients are chosen based on their
demonstrated work to support the four pillars of NHS: scholarship, service, leadership, and
"Braylee exemplifies our school’s values of being Responsible, Respectful, Kind and Hard
Working! She is always the first to volunteer when there is a need, and makes everyone feel
welcome with her bright smile! Her positive “can do” attitude will bring her much success. We
look forward to seeing where Braylee’s dedication and hard work will take her in the future!", Mrs. Randi Watts.
At NWHS, Braylee has held leadership positions in STORM (Student Government), National
Honor Society, and works with new students as well as special education students with
student leadership groups such as Link Crew, Peer Connections, Renaissance Exchange
Council and even our SuperFan council. This fall, she hopes to attend Taylor University to
study elementary education with a minor in math.
Check out all the opportunities and resources available our NWCS students to help prepare them for their future!
