Bevin welcomes JAG National Board Meeting to Kentucky
By Nicole Burton
Louisville, KY - Gov. Matt Bevin today welcomed the Jobs for America's Graduates (JAG) National Board of Directors meeting to the Commonwealth, as the group convened at the Seelbach Hilton in downtown Louisville. JAG is a state-based national non-profit organization dedicated to preventing dropouts among young people who have serious barriers to graduation and/or employment.
Gov. Bevin, who serves on the JAG Board of Directors, welcomed his colleagues from across the nation, as he touted the program's success in the Bluegrass State.
"We are excited to host the distinguished members of the Jobs for America's Graduates National Board of Directors to Kentucky," said Gov. Bevin. "JAG Kentucky has invested nearly $1 million in Kentucky schools to prepare the next generation of student leaders. The program's impressive outcomes, including a 100% high school graduation rate among participants, prove the effectiveness of their powerful model. Not only is JAG equipping young people for success, it is enhancing the quality of businesses and communities all across our Commonwealth."
