Without JAG program, 'I would not be anywhere'

Posted on Aug. 9, 2014 at 4:21 p.m.

I owe a great debt to the Jobs for America's Graduates program, including the JAG specialist at Elkhart Memorial High School, Michael Griffin. Michael and JAG have both helped me in ways that have helped me better my craft. Without this program, I would not be anywhere.

I wish to say thank you to everyone at JAG and WorkOne for helping me find my niche. I would also like to thank The Elkhart Truth for taking me in as an intern, letting me work with the paper and teaching me lessons beyond just an educational and professional standpoint, but from a moral standpoint.

I will always remember the people I have met and the gifts of knowledge you have given me. To Michael, JAG, WorkOne and The Elkhart Truth, thank you — not only for helping me, but for giving others hope for their future by paving a path. Thank you.
