Attention High School Students and Parents: There are some changes to our process for ordering letterman jackets this year. Please use the link below to place all orders. We will not be doing in person ordering on campus. Once the jacket has been paid for the company will begin making individual jackets so that you do not have to order as a group. Please check with your coaches for any additional information or questions. https://jostensharrell.typeform.com/to/RvSsyBqs Please note that jacket orders are only for high school students, and they have to have started a season before ordering a jacket. #ghs_panthers #GreenbrierProud
