WASHINGTON, D.C. - The student-led team from Parkview High School placed first in the nation in the Project-Based Learning Showcase Competition during the Jobs for Americas Graduates (JAG) National Student Leadership Academy in Washington, D.C.
Parkview High School seniors Kaymeryn Baker, Aumri Duncan, and Jose Santos were awarded first place for their community service project they developed and implemented through the Parkview JAG Program. These students presented their plan, implementation, and results to the judges in the Project-Based Learning Showcase Competition. Project-Based Learning is a teaching methodology that combines real-world scenarios with 21st Century skills to prepare young people for postsecondary education and the workforce.
Another Parkview High School senior, Jaylen Lampkin, was chosen to sing the National Anthem at the JAG Awards Luncheon that also took place during the JAG National Student Leadership Academy.
The JAG National Leadership Academy took place Nov. 14-18. Students who placed in the top three for the category they competed in during the JAG State Student Leadership Academy were able to compete at the JAG National Leadership Academy.
