JHS awarded Region 9 book grant

Jacksboro High School freshman English teacher Susan Coley was the recipient of a gift for her classroom just in time for the new school year.

Coley received a trunk full of books to be used by freshmen English 1 literature students. In the trunk were multiple copies of several current young adult fiction and nonfiction titles.

“Students will be able to pick books they would like to read and discuss with classmates,” Coley said. 

A grant from Write for Texas through the Region 9 Educational Service Center provided the books through the program coordinated by Marisa Hafley and Kathy Harvey.
