Students from the Ben Davis High School Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) program recently attended the Regional Career Development Conference.
The all-day event was hosted at the NCAA Hall of Champions and sponsored by several Indianapolis corporations.
The students competed in several areas that tested their career-related skills. The students displayed poise, respect, and talent, while truly enjoying and appreciating the experience.
In addition to individual awards, the JAG program received two chapter awards. These awards were representative of the school and its program. All 80 of the JAG students worked on the chapter banner, which illustrated what BD JAG means to them.
The students had a strong fall semester of classroom learning and their learning was on full display at the Career Development Conference. All students who placed will receive monetary prizes and those who placed first or second will move on to the state competition on March 14.
