Russell High School’s Jobs for America’s Graduates-Kansas, or JAG-K, organization worked in April to create a marketing campaign to promote JAG-K and what the program is all about.

The students divided into groups and each group built their own part of the marketing campaign. JAG-K students presented their campaign to students during their council period, hosted a networking event, and also provided information to high school students and parents.

Raina Tomlinson, RHS JAG-K Career Specialist, recently spoke about the campaign on KRSL’s morning show.

JAG-K students also participated in a stress management and self-care unit that discussed stress they might face in the workplace.
