The Jackson Scholar Program
The responsibilities associated with the position are as varied as the curriculum. In addition to the scholastic requirements, Jackson Scholars serve as Center representatives at sponsored and co-sponsored events both on and off-campus. Scholars will be expected to come to weekly meetings with the Director and Assistant Director, as well as various other planning meetings throughout each semester.
Each spring semester, the Scholars serve as counselors for the After School Ethics Academy. For seven weeks, local sixth graders come to campus to learn about what ethics are, and how we ought to live our lives. Scholars are heavily involved in the planning for the Academy, and function as both counselors and mentors to the visiting students.
