Jackson County's JAC3 Program celebrates its 'pioneer' graduates
Tuesday, February 07, 2017
Jackson-area high school seniors had one week to decide if they wanted to participate in a three-year precision machining and welding program.
Only, they would have to complete it in two years. And, they would be the pioneers -- the first students to ever go through such a program.
Six students were up for the challenge, and all are on to big things, as five now have full-time jobs in the industry and the other is using his job experience to further his education.
On Thursday night, Aug. 11, these six students were honored at Cascades Manor House, 1970 Kibby Road, for completion of the the Jackson Area College and Career Connection Early/Middle College Program, JAC3 for short.
