We've often heard it takes a village to raise a child. Well, on Tuesday morning, Jackson public schools thanked the village of people in the community who volunteer with JPS.
The school district hosted the 8th annual "JPS Partners in Education Highlight Awards Breakfast." The ceremony recognizes businesses and people who give their time to JPS students.
Rebecca Starling, the Director for the Partners in Education Program says, "the community brings so much to our schools in the way of career education and just all kinds of things they wouldn't ordinarily be exposed too."
WLBT received recognition for thirty years of service with the "Partners in Education" program.
