Congratulations are in order for a number of JGHS students for recent academic, musical and athletic accomplishments. Seniors Sage Keltee and Tiffany Luong received $500 book scholarships at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Breakfast in Zanesville Monday. Keltee and Luong were among 28 students to receive this annual scholarship. Both have plans to study nursing in college. Five senior band students participated in the All District Honors Band at Marietta High School last Saturday. Tori Edwards, Michelle Horner, Megan Mahon, Sarah Porter and Caleb Stewart were part of the 98 member band representing 20 southeastern Ohio high schools. The girls' swim team placed first at the Coshocton Invitational on Saturday. The girls' relay team made up of Julie Lewis, Julie Morgan, Katie Morgan and Erin Shade also broke their records for both the 200 medleys and 200 free. Last Friday night, senior Jake Heagen reached a basketball milestone by scoring his 1000th point during an away game at West Muskingum. Heagen wasn't even aware that he had reached it until the end of the game when his sister told him he had. Congratulations to all of these students for the obvious dedication they have shown. They are not just talented in one area; all of these students demonstrate many skills and academic success at JGHS. Not only that, they are young people who are respected by their peers. The Jon Jee staff wishes all of you continued success. On a sad note, the Jon Jee staff also wishes to express our sympathy to the family of Sue Williamson. Mrs. Williamson, who retired a few years ago, taught kindergarten for 35 years in the district. She lost a battle with cancer just before Christmas. Mrs. Williamson made an impact on so many East Muskingum students. Her gentleness and enthusiasm helped instill a love for learning in her students. It is because of teachers like her that so many students in our district have been motivated to succeed in so many different areas.
