JMG Students (l-r) Amy Lawrence, advisor Mrs. Jill Page, Natosha Sand, Nataliya Melnyk, Ashlyn Aten, Reagan Zerbe, Micah Tweten, Kacie Pittman, Kaylee Ross and Kassie Moore assisted and coordinated with the Red Cross to obtain blood donations at GHS on Feb. 22.

On Feb. 22, the Red Cross stopped at Glasgow High School to assist in the current shortage of blood donations throughout the country. The blood drive was in partnership with Jobs for Montana Graduates (JMG) students. Under the advisement of Mrs. Jill Page, JMG helped fellow students and staff get registered while volunteers from the Red Cross assisted in obtaining blood.

JMG is a course at GHS where students prepare for life after high school. No matter the direction the students choose, the course helps students with communication, career research, career development, all of which involves job shadowing and leadership skills, as well as self-development skills such as finances, budgeting and teamwork. The course also includes the students attending state conferences and being a part of the Montana Career Association club.

Class officers Kassie Moore (president), Ashlyn Aten (vice president of leadership), Kacie Pittman (vice president of social), Lexie Pehlke (vice president of career), Alexus Nistler (vice president of civic) and Natosha Sand (treasurer/secretary) help keep the class and students on track in fulfilling their full potential and following the foundations of JMG.

Another major aspect for these students is community involvement. Students have painted Scottie paw prints outside of the high school, helped fellow students by putting up posters with positive themes throughout the high school, and most recently, collecting funds for patients affected by leukemia and lymphoma cancer.

If you have a community service project, have an idea on how these students can be involved in the community or would like more information regarding JMG, contact Mrs. Jill Page at 228-2485 or by email at page@mail.glasgow.k12.mt.us.
