EducationH.W. Byers students attend High School Day at JSU
By Kearee J. Jackson
Members of the junior and senior classes at H.W. Byers High School recently traveled to Jackson State University’s High School Day. On Saturday, October 6, the students arrived at the university with a warm welcome from campus students. The students received valuable information regarding the university such as: admissions requirements, scholarship information, and academic programs information. They also received welcomes from Jasmine Searcy, Miss Jackson State University, the Student Government Association president, and the president of the university. Not only did they learn about the college, but they were able to see the JSU Dance Ensemble, Wavy Dave and the Baby Tigers, and a Greek show where members from the Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, and Zeta Phi Beta sororities and Phi Beta Sigma fraternity performed. “This opportunity has really allowed me to get the JSU experience,” said Simone Ryan, a senior class member. “God‚ Family‚ JSU‚” was the main theme for the High School Day. Chaperone Lender Luse said, “I was glad that the students were able to view my alma mater. I think they will add this university to the list of colleges and universities they would like to attend.
“Ultimately, it was a great trip and an awesome opportunity. After viewing the campus and thoroughly enjoying it, maybe some of our students will become a ‘Jacksonian’,” she said.
