A Lebanon High School graduate says she did not see the point in going to school before taking a class to help her graduate and find her niche. Emily Young says the Jobs for America’s Graduates program helped her to show up for school. The organization, known as JAG, helps at-risk students to work on their personal development, graduate, and find a career.
Young graduated in May. She is working at a hotel in town and plans to pursue her education in hospitality.
