Madison Consolidated High School has been a host for  Jobs for America's Graduates (MadJAG) since 2010.  Since our beginning, we have received 40+ awards for our individual and chapter achievement and community contributions. Our program has touched the lives of nearly 200 students.

Jobs for America‚Äôs Graduates (JAG) is a state-based, national non-profit organization dedicated to preventing dropouts among young people who are most at-risk. JAG's mission is to keep young people in school through graduation and provide work-based learning experiences that will lead to career advancement opportunities or to enroll in a postsecondary institution that leads to a rewarding career.  

Recently, our MadJAG team participated in the Career Development Conference where the team took first place in Chapter Commercial, Chapter Blog, and Chapter Brochure.  Individual first place awards included: Outstanding Senior - Riley Motenko, Career Presentation - Lauren Medina, Public Speaking - Josh Pearson, and Cover Design - Johnny Hunt.
Individual second place awards included: Employability Skills - Christian Brown, Entrepreneurship - Gabby Wilson, and Writing Skills - Michanel Guard.  Third place awards included: Financial Literacy - Emyly Wilson and Employability Skills - Daniel Anderson.

This Just In!

On Friday, March 17th, three members of the MCHS JAG Chapter traveled to Indianapolis to compete at the State Annual Career Development Conference.   Each student, IMG 20170317 180307 216decorated with regional awards, had hopes of a state title in their choice of professional development categories.

Lauren Medina (pictured on left) placed 2nd in Career Presentation, Riley Motenko (pictured on right) earned an Honorable mention for Outstanding Senior, and Josh Pearson (pictured in center) competed in Public Speaking. "Each student faced stiff competition and all performed well and networked making professional connections which will last a lifetime", shared Mrs. Whitney Mathews, MCHS JAG teacher (pictured back center).

The MCHS JAG program brought home 1st place in State for their Service Learning Blog. "This is a huge accomplishment for us as a program!  Our Chapter has placed at the state level, but never first. This is a first for our region to take a 1st place spot in a chapter event," shared Mathews.

Congratulations to all competitors and all members of the MCHS JAG Chapter and Mrs. Mathews on a job well done!
