Jackson County School System students have been big winners in recent promotions for participation in meals served in local cafeterias.
Zach Brown, a senior at Jackson County Comprehensive High School won a Samsung Galaxy tablet for his red-and-black Panther-themed artwork encouraging students to eat breakfast. Runners-up received prize bags with the “Start your Engines” theme used for the annual celebration of breakfast at school.
School-level winners and runners-up included Shuajdu Ly, Sofia Rosales, and Jessica Hughes at North Jackson Elementary School; Braxton Pittman and Juliet Camp at East Jackson Elementary School; Hannah Jarrett and Chloe Lawrence at Maysville Elementary School; Justin Travenner at Gum Springs Elementary School; and Sydney Lee at JCCHS.
And, while NCAA men and women’s basketball players were making buckets in tournament games across the country, local student winners were munching on treats from March Madness promotion “buckets.”
