Elementary, Middle school honor departing students

Most parade entries have folks waving from the roof of a car or a truck.

Incoming JHS freshman Carson Williams was able to one up his Jacksboro Middle School classmates during the eighth grade parade May 20 by riding in his dad’s 18-wheeler, which he thought was pretty cool.

As a chance to say goodbye to its graduates, both JES and JMS let their departing students go through town in a short parade. JMS has 89 students moving up to the high school while JES has 82 students to replace the JMS students as 6th graders.
