Jefferson middle school students were invited to participate in the Mahoning Valley Innovations Conference on March 14th by Mr. Miles Jay. Students listened to a forum panel discussing issues within the communities and possible solutions. Students then led an activity at the conference, guiding the group through readings of various poems by poet Tupac Shakur. We would like to thank Mr. Jay for his invitation to the event and congratulate the students for their hard work and the positive role they played during the conference.
