Youth media

Donna Ladd, editor and co-founder of the Jackson Free Press, who helped start the Mississippi Youth Media Project spoke recently to the Rotary Club of Jackson. She explained how the project helps youth 14 to 18 learn the tools to tell their own personal stories. Several of the youth attended the meeting and answered questions from the audience. Shown are (from left) Rotary Club of Jackson President-Elect Neddie Winters, president of Mission Mississippi; Ladd; and Michael Neelly, president and general manager of WAPT-TV.


The Jackson Academy Accents won in the MAIS Spirit Competition, taking first place in both the AAAA Kick division and the AAAA Pom division against teams from across the state.
