Meet the SHS new Jag Coordinator

"My name is Tabatha Farnsley, and I am very excited to say I am the new JAG coordinator for SHS. JAG is a new program here at Scottsburg and it is going to be making a positive impact on those who participate in it. JAG stands for Job's for America's Graduates, and the purpose of this class is to prepare students for after High School. Through Career research, job readiness planning, internships, and more, let JAG help you become a more successful student and grow into an even more successful adult.

I have loved meeting my new students and cannot wait to meet even more! Everyone at SHS has been kind and warm, from the sweet and hardworking custodians to the warm and kind office staff, the entire faculty here has been more than gracious. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to be here at this school and to get this new program started."

Chapter Challenge is an event held annually by District XI that allows the chapter within the district to come together and compete with one another. Scottsburg FFA hosted this event because they have two district officers in the Scottsburg FFA Chapter. Emma Hall is Vice President, and Tessa Richey is Secretary of District XI.
