Emalee Beyer to attend National JAG Conference in D.C.


Graves County Sophomore Emalee Beyer has been accepted as a member of the JAG Kentucky Leadership Academy.

Beyer will travel to Washington D.C. in December to attend the National JAG Conference where she said she is excited to learning more about JAG and how it helps students.

“I am excited for ALL of it,” said Beyer, “I look forward to the conference and experiencing the important monuments in our nation’s capitol.”

JAG stands for Jobs for America’s Graduates, and is sponsored by Mrs. Stephanie Rickman, who also received a leadership award this year.

In order to be considered for this opportunity, Beyer had to complete a competitive and rigorous process. “I had to read a prompt and write a speech about the qualities of a good leader and how people can improve on and show these qualities,” she explained. “Then I had to record it and submit it to national team.”

Beyer’s enthusiasm for JAG was evident as she encouraged students to join the program: “It is really helpful for scholarships, job, and college applications. It is a great way to figure out how to prepare for your future.”
