Preddy Earns First Place at State JAG Competition
Robert Preddy took 1st place in the state competition for Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG). JAG is a new program to Cassville High School. This is the first time students have competed in the Career Development Conference which consists of pre-event competitions and on-site competitions. Several students competed in the pre-event category for Career Development Conference which included chapter commercial, chapter newsletter, and employability skills to name a few.
Preddy competed in employability skills which consisted of two phases: resume and cover letter (phase 1) and application and employment interview (phase 2). His resume and cover letter took 1st place which would have sent him to phase 2 of the competitions on-site. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to compete in phase 2 because of quarantine.
