• Alumni & Friends  
    WHO WE ARE:   The JPS Alumni & Friends Association is a group of all alumni (Parkside HS, Jackson High, & TA Wilson grads)  and friends (families, staff, community members etc.) of the Jackson Public Schools who want to be more connected with the school and community. The mission of the Association is to impact the following four groups in a meaningful way: Connect alumni with their fellow alumni, the schools and the faculty and students; Provide the students with a perspective of what's possible for them with their JPS education; Give the faculty a sense of pride of the impact their life work has made on the lives of their former students; and help the community take pride in the impact the Jackson Public School system has made. The Association will strive to keep alumni informed of current events, venues to get connected with fellow alum, and volunteer opportunities to give back to the schools in a meaningful way.
    WE WANT YOU!  Join and be a part of the future of JPS!
