JHS Students from low-income families looking for major college opportunities. Check out Questbridge. QuestBridge is a powerful platform that connects the nation's brightest students from low-income backgrounds with leading institutions of higher education and further opportunities. We are an aggregator of excellence. By facilitating these exchanges, QuestBridge aims to increase the percentage of talented low-income students attending the nation's best universities and the ranks of national leadership itself. Our Vision QuestBridge envisions a world where America's leadership encompasses thoughtful and broad-minded decision-makers drawn from every economic segment of society. QuestBridge will revolutionize the way leading colleges and universities recruit talented low-income students, and the way these students approach their educations and futures. Our Mission QuestBridge designs and builds programs for talented low-income students to access and navigate exceptional educational and life opportunities. QuestBridge recruits, develops, and supports motivated low-income students – beginning in high school through college to their early career – to be successful at America's best colleges, graduate schools, and companies. What we know Abundant low-income talent exists. Annually, approximately 30,000 talented low-income students nationally are academically qualified to attend the nation’s best colleges, but the majority of them don’t even apply to one selective college. Already in the system, there is abundant raw talent and tens of thousands of academically prepared talented low-income students in America to match top low-income students with every full-need scholarship that top American colleges provide. There need be no academic gap if we can bring our best low-income students into the system. What we believe Intelligence, talent, motivation, nobility, and grit are distributed across the entire economic spectrum of America's youth. Many elite colleges and universities, Fortune 500 corporations, and top graduate schools sincerely strive to embrace the country's most talented, determined, and self-motivated students. But they often lack the reach to attract appropriate candidates from low-income populations. America has an undiscovered population of talented low-income youth. Some of our brightest young minds are well-suited to opportunities, but unconnected for simple lack of information, mentorship, and other surmountable barriers. https://www.questbridge.org/high-school-students

The possibility of severe weather during school hours will undoubtedly create some anxiety. Please remember that every student at Jones is within a few minutes of a safe room while at school. However, if you feel your family will be safer at home, we will support your decision. If you decide to keep your child at home, please call the main office to report the absence, so it can be excused. Tomorrow’s absences will not count against perfect attendance or absences limitations. Thank you, Dr. Carl Johnson

Congratulations to JHS Junior, Taylor Shaw. Taylor has been selected as a Miss Oklahoma Teen Finalist. It’s A Great Day To Be A Longhorn! She is currently preparing for her pageant and is looking for sponsors. Below is some information from Taylor about her selection. The Miss Oklahoma Teen Pageant is organized by National American Miss. They send letters to chosen participants to invite them to an open call interview, which is where they will determine whether or not you are in the pageant. They select their participants by reviewing Honor Society referrals and/or you had participated in a past pageant. National American Miss Pageants are based on teaching girls to have positive self-images by enhancing their beauty within. The pageant isn’t focused solely on the girls outer beauty but on helping girls grow and expand their ideas on who they truly are. When I first received the open call letter, I was very excited. The pageant would not only open many doors for me in the future, but would also allow me to create many friends and memories along my journey. I went to the open call interview and was then asked three questions about myself and what I planned on doing in the future after I graduate high school. The following day I got an email stating that I had been chosen to be a Miss Oklahoma Teen Finalist. After finding out I was in the pageant, I immediately called close family to tell them the exciting news. In the small amount time of finding out that I was a State Finalist, I have gained much support from family and friends. In the email, it provided a step by step guide of what was next to come. I am currently searching for potential sponsors, to help support me as I get ready for the pageant. The sponsors would help support me with sponsorship fees, production number outfits, audience tickets for the pageant, and so much more. I then attend a pageant prep training session, which will prepare me for the pageant,which is on July 5th through 7th in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Miss Oklahoma Teen Pageant is an opportunity of a lifetime and I am so thankful to be a part of it. In addition to the crowning of the next Miss Oklahoma Teen, scholarships, cash prizes, awards, and trophies are given to all participants. Girls who participate in the pageant will also gain self-confidence, communication skills, and a valuable experience as they interview and appear on stage in front of others.

Jane Austin Society of North America Essay Contest JASNA conducts an annual student Essay Contest to foster the study and appreciation of Jane Austen's work. The contest is open to high school, college/university and graduate students who appreciate the writings of Jane Austin. Participants must write an essay on the following topic: 2019 Contest Topic Abbey Gatehouse Reading Abbey Gatehouse, where Jane and Cassandra Austen attended school from 1785-1786 In honor of the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's novel Northanger Abbey, we welcome essays on following topic: Northanger Abbey can be described as a book about books. There is, of course, the well-known "defense of the novel,” but characters also discuss their reading habits, name specific novels, and even consider history books. In her works, Austen often makes use of fiction, poetry or plays, either explicitly or indirectly. Explore how she does this in Northanger Abbey. High school students may bring in another Austen novel but are not required to do so; undergraduate and graduate students must bring in one or more additional novels. Award Amount: 3 awards, $250 – $1,000 Deadline: June 3, 2019 http://www.jasna.org/programs/essay-contest?

Black History Month Did You Know… The United States Armed Forces were segregated from the End of Slavery until Executive Order 9981 was issued on July 26, 1948, by President Harry S. Truman. It abolished discrimination "on the basis of race, color, religion or national origin" in the United States Armed Forces. The executive order eventually led to the end of segregation in the services. Prior to desegregation our United States Military had many all-black units that served this country with distinction. In this spotlight we are going to focus on two highly decorated groups. The 9th & 10th Calvary “Buffalo Soldiers” and the 332nd Air Squadron or Tuskegee Airmen. These troops fought many battles to protect rights that they themselves did not get to fully enjoy. There has been much made of where the term”Buffalo Soldier” originated but it has become the term used for the US Army units that trace their lineage back to the All-Black 9th and 10th Calvary units, whose service earned them an honored place in History. The Buffalo Soldiers spent time in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas. They pursed Victorio and Nana and other Apache warriors during Victorio’s War. They also fought in the Ghost Dance War and the Wounded Creek Massacre. They were also used to remove SOONERS from native lands in the 1880’s and 1890’s. A total of 23 Buffalo Solidiers received Congressional Medals of Honor during the Indian Wars. These All black Calvary Units continued to serve the US Military through conflicts around the World until the Horse Calvary was disbanded in 1951. The Tuskegee Airmen is the popular name of agroup of African American military pilots who fought in World War II. They were the first African American military aviators in the United States Armed forces. The Tuskegee Airmen’s first Combat Assignment was in North Africa where it received a Distinguished Unit Citation. They were then assigned to mainland Italy. In Italy they escorted Heavy Bombers on Bombing Raids into Hungary, Austria, Czechloslavakia, Poland and Germany. The quickly won the admiration of the Bomber pilots who referred to them as Red Tails because of their distinctive plane markings The Tuskegee Airmen are credited with the following accomplishments and awards: • 1578 Combat Missions • 179 Bomber Escort missions , losing bombers only on 7 missions • 112 enemy aircraft destroyed in the air • 950 rail cars, trucks and other motor vehicles destroyed • One destroyer put out of action • 40 other boats and barges destroyed • Received the Distinguished Unit Citation on 3 separate occasions • One Silver Star • 96 Distinguished Flying Crosses • 14 Bronze stars • 744 Air Medals • And 8 purple hearts

Black History Month Did You Know… Being handpicked to be one of three black students to integrate West Virginia’s graduate schools is something that many would consider one of their life’s most notable moments, but it is just one of several breakthroughs that have marked Katherine Johnson’s Life. **Her intense curiosity and brilliance with numbers allowed her to move ahead several grades in school ** She was attending high school at age of 13 at West Viriginia state College ** Graduated from West Virginia State College in 1937 and took a job teaching at a black public school in Virginia ** West Virginia State University president John Davis selected her and two male students as the first black students to attend West Virginia University’s graduate school in 1939. **1953 She took position at the all-black West Area Computing section at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics(NACA) Langley Laboratory. She was assigned to a project in the Maneuver Loads Branch of the Flight Research Division. She spent 4 years analyzing data from flight tests and worked on t the investigation of a plane crash caused by wake turbulence ** 1957 Launch of the Soviet Sputnik Satellite changed History and Katherine Johnson’s Life ** The NACA groups (becomes NASA) she worked with began their foray in space travel and Katherine went with them. She did trajectory analysis for Alan Shepard’s May 1961 Freedom 7 mission. This was America’s first human spaceflight. ** In 1960 she coauthored a research report. It was the first time a woman in the Flight Research division had received credit as an author. **in 1962 as NASA prepared for the orbital mission of John Glenn, Katherine Johnson was called upon to do the work she would become most known for. **As part of the preflight checklist, Glenn asked the engineers to have Katherine Johnson run the same numbers and equations that had been programmed into the computer, but by hand. If she says they are good,” Katherine remembers the astronaut saying,”then I am ready to go.” Glenn’s flight was a success. Katherine Johnson Retired from NASA in 1986

Black History Month Did You Know… The Greenwood District of Tulsa is a historic Freedom Colony. As one of the most prominent concentrations of African American businesses in the United States during the early 20th Century, it was popularly known as “America’s Black Wall Street”. This area contained numerous expensive houses belonging to Doctor’s, lawyers and business owners. The buildings on Greenwood Avenue housed the offices of almost all of Tulsa’s Black Lawyers, realtors, doctors and other professionals. Greenwood had some of the most successful black owned businesses. Greenwood was home to over 15 well know African American Physicians, including Dr. A.C. Jackson who was considered one of the most able Negro surgeons by one of the Mayo Brothers. Greenwood was home to not only one but two major Newspapers, The Tulsa Star and the Oklahoma Sun. Black Wall Street flourished until the Tulsa Race Riots of 1921. During this riot 100’s of African Americans were killed and 10000 left homeless as 35 square blocks of homes and businesses were torched and fire bombed by mobs of angry whites. This massacre has been omitted from state and local records and was rarely mentioned in history books until recently. ‘ The community mobilized its resources and rebuilt the Greenwood area within 5 years of the Tulsa Race Riots. To learn more about “Black Wall Street’ and the Tulsa Race riots read Black Wall Street: From Riot to Renaissance in Tulsa’s Historic Greenwood District.

Black History Month Did You Know…. Clara Luper was an OKC Civic Leader, retired school teacher, and a pioneering leader in the American Civil Rights Movement. She was born in rural Okfuskee County in 1923. Her father was a World War I veteran and laborer and her mother was a laundress. She went to high school in the all black town of Grayson, Oklahoma and attended college at Langston University where she received a BA in Mathematics and a minor in History. In 1950, she became the first African American student in the Graduate History Program at the University of Oklahoma. She received her MA in History Education from OU in 1951. In 1957 as Luper worked as a History Teacher at Dunjee High School in Spencer Oklahoma she be came advisor of the Oklahoma City NAACP Youth Council. She was deeply influenced by Martin Luther King Jr and his methods of nonviolent protest to affect change in the Civil Rights Movement. From 1958 to 1964 Luper mentored members of the NAACP Youth Council during its campaign to end segregation of public accommodations through sit-ins, protests and boycotts. This was highlighted in 1958 when Luper, her son and daughter and members of the NAACP Youth Council entered the segregated Katz Drug Store in downtown OKC and asked to be served. They were refused service and the police were called. NO arrests were made but three days later Katz corporate management in Kansas City desegregated its stores in three states. Luper was very prominent in the National Civil Rights movement. She took part in the 1963 March on Washington where Dr. Martin Luther King gave his “I have a Dream Speech” and also took part in the 1965 Selma to Montgomery Marches. In 1972, Luper ran unsuccessfully for election to the US Senate. When asked by the press if she, a black woman, could represent white people, she responded: “ Of course, I can represent white people, black people, red people, yellow people, brown people, and polka dot people. You see, I have lived long enough to know that people are people.” Luper taught History in the Oklahoma City School system for 41 years. She retired from John Marshall in 1989. Luper received hundreds of awards and was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, the Okahoma Women’s Hall of Fame, and the Oklahoma Afro-American Hall of Fame among others.

Today kicks off Black History Month. Did you know... DID YOU KNOW…… The story of Black History Month begins in 1915, half a century after the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery in the United States. That September, the Harvard-trained historian Carter G. Woodson and the prominent minister Jesse E. Moorland founded the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (ASNLH), an organization dedicated to researching and promoting achievements by black Americans and other peoples of African descent. Known today as the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), the group sponsored a national Negro History week in 1926, choosing the second week of February to coincide with the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. The event inspired schools and communities nationwide to organize local celeIn the decades that followed, mayors of cities across the country began issuing yearly proclamations recognizing Negro History Week. By the late 1960s, thanks in part to the civil rights movement and a growing awareness of black identity, Negro History Week had evolved into Black History Month on many college campuses. President Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, calling upon the public to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.”

There is no shame in reaching out for help if you or someone you know needs it. • If you or someone you know is struggling with drug use or addiction, give them the number to the confidential hotline: 1-800-662-HELP (4357). There is treatment for drug addiction, and it works. It’s never too late to reach out for help.
