Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our student-athletes come from across the city of Jackson and our entire school qualifies for free lunch and transportation to and from school based on the fact that the majority of our students live below the poverty level.
Despite the issues facing our students, they come to school every day and persevere.
Most every student attends college post-graduation. Our students need any support available, as our school and district often cannot provide the resources necessary for our students to compete with other high schools in our region. Athletics is a way that they are able to realize their post-secondary dream.
Our track and field team is coming off of a very successful season. Our track program is made up of males and females. The level of play spanned from newcomer to district qualifying athletes. Most of all, our students are having fun and learning the sport. The kids are doing a great job learning and really enjoyed the experience. This school year will be our team plans to compete for a state title!
During track meets our athletes are positioned around the track our in the bleachers.
Being in Mississippi it is very HOT during track season. These tents will help us provide our athletes with the shade to help them perform well.
