Longley Named JAG Essay Winner
Students enrolled in the Jobs for American Graduates Program (JAG) at Cassville High were asked to complete an essay answering the following question: "what do you wish all Missourians knew about JAG?"
Cassville JAG member and CHS senior, Sara Longley, was selected as the local essay winner. Essay winners across the state were invited to an event on November 1 in Jefferson City. Longley, joined by her grandfather Landon Fletcher and JAG Advisor Mrs.Teresa Stewart, toured the Governor's Mansion, enjoyed lunch with JAG students and advisors from across the state and were honored by Governor Mike Parson and First Lady Teresa Parson during a reception at the Capitol Rotunda.
JAG compiled all winning essays and created a book for the winners as a keepsake. Longley is also pictured on the front of the book.
Longley is the daughter of Leslie Smith and Kent Longley, both of Cassville.
