Jackson DECA Provides New Eyes for the Needy


by Molly Staffordsmith

On January 25th, 2017 Jackson Liberty High School DECA hosted their community service chapter project to benefit New Eyes For the Needy. Molly Staffordsmith and Alex Lanier, Sophmores, ran the club’s Cornhole Tournament in the main gym on Wednesday night.

The event lasted for two hours and was filled with music, fun, competition, and prizes. The winners of the event won prizes provided by local businesses in Jackson.
The turnout was more than anyone ever expected, and the support shown was tremendous. The two students worked long and hard to raise money for New Eyes For The Needy, an organization that raises money for those who are unable to purchase their own glasses. The goal that the students had to reach was to raise $900 for the cause, at the end of the day they raised well over $1,000. Congratulations and thank you to all that came out to support this great event.
