The REF program at JHS

Katie Linder, Staff Writer


JHS is one of the few schools in the area that is home to a program for incoming freshmen in high school.  The Role Models Encouraging Freshmen (REF) Program has been in place at JHS since 2009 and with every school year, new changes have been implemented.

Currently, there are around 50 REFs at JHS, and the REF Program was responsible for organizing the freshman-only day on August 16th, 2012.  With Mrs. Neathery at the head of the program, positive changes have been added over the past years and will continue to be added in the future.
