The Cherokee County JAG program held their annual JAG Banquet on Thursday, November 15th at Gadsden State-Cherokee. Delivering the keynote address was recently elected District 39 Alabama State Representative Ginny Shaver. Shaver shared about an influential teacher she had in high school and discussed with the students on the importance of setting goals.
Also in attendance was Dr. Cynthia McCarty, Vice President of the Alabama State Board of Education, Cherokee County School Superintendent Mitchell Guice, and Cherokee County Career Technical Director Brett Keasler.
Every year, the Cherokee County JAG program develops, plans, and carries out this event to display what JAG is all about and show family, friends, and community leaders the important role JAG plays in their lives.
