High school applicants must be applying to be full time students at a two or four year college/university or a technical training college (these are considered qualified schools). Applicant must maintain a 2.0 GPA minimum on a 4.0 scale in the current year. College applicants must be full time students at either a two or four year college or university.

JHS Seniors: Driver Education Initiative Award – Annual Scholarship Opportunity National Driving and Traffic School is proud to announce their 2020 scholarship opportunity, entitled “In the Driver’s Seat.” The company is seeking to reward essay applicants $3,000 in scholarships- for students entering college or already enrolled in a higher education institution – on the topic of being a safer driver. Driver Education Initiative 2020: In the Driver’s Seat The Topic of this year’s essay submissions deals with the serious implications of being a driver. In America, an average of 34,000 people die each year as a result of driving. This is more people who have died in one year as a result of driving, than the total number of American soldiers who have died from war in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. The total number of Americans who die within the span of two years as a result of driving is more than the total number of American deaths from the Vietnam war. This is to say, driving is more dangerous and deadly for our nation than being involved in combat, and highlights the serious consequences of being negligent on the road.

JHS Seniors: Apply THE JAMES ALAN COX FOUNDATION FOR STUDENT PHOTOJOURNALISTS Type of Awards: Five (5) Digital SLR Cameras will be awarded to five (5) high school students. (High school applicants should only submit still photographs. The video awards are for college and graduate students only.) Five (5) $2,500 scholarships will be awarded to five (5) college or technical school students, payable to their school. Four awards will be for video work while one will be for still photography. One (1) $2,500 scholarship will be awarded to one (1) graduate student, payable to their school, for video work. Focus of work and entries: PHOTOJOURNALISM. (Please see the 2019 or previous years’ scholarship recipients to view examples of winning photographs and videos.) Scholarships will be awarded to those students whose work “tells a story”. This is a fairly broad topic and may include a variety of subject matter and approaches (breaking news, sporting events, etc.) Please keep in mind, for the still photography submissions, that we are NOT looking for “art” photography. One suggestion, for subject matter, is the current crisis our world is facing: COVID-19. All of our lives have been changed by the Coronavirus. Much like 9/11 changed the lives of your parents, this event will change your world forever. You can show, through images or video, how COVID-19 has affected life in your school, your home, and your community. (In terms of still photography, you may submit individual images that stand alone or a series of photos.) Topics might include empty shelves in stores and empty classrooms, or health care workers bravely battling this virus. Stories might also focus on how you and your family are dealing with this pandemic – playing games, making meals together, and, of course, navigating the new educational system of distance learning. We urge you to go out and record the history that is being made all around you (and be sure to identify your photos by location and date). Again, we are looking for photojournalism. We are asking you to do a lot with this application – write an essay and send us your transcript and recommendations – so if you are submitting still photos, please don’t ruin your chances of being considered by entering images of flowers, glamour shots or kittens – no matter how adorable they may be. Scholarship applications must be submitted between July 15, 2020 and Midnight, the Evening of November 15th, 2020. Scholarships will be announced and awarded in early to mid-December.

27 September 2020 Dear Parents, In an effort to keep you informed on the health status of our district, we will be reporting weekly on any positive cases of COVID-19 within our schools and any exposure to positive cases. While we hope we can avoid any more positive cases in our community, we expect to have a few students or staff exposed to COVID during this time, and they will be asked to quarantine as per the OKC - County Department of Health guidelines. Remember, an exposure is not the same as a positive case.  It is important to keep in mind that if your child is ever exposed to a COVID positive person at school, you will be notified immediately. This report is only to make you aware of the overall incidents within our district. With each incident, and on other occasions, we are consulting with the OKC - County Health Department.  During this last week, we have experienced two POSITIVE CASES, one at the elementary school and one at the high school. We also had 26 reported exposures. Families with students that were at risk of exposure were notified directly. Each individual is following the quarantining protocol as prescribed by OKCCH.  We are following CDC guidelines and protocols set by the State Department of Health and our school district to decrease potential spread. The use of masks is critical to this cause. Also, we have limited the contact time and provided social distancing whenever possible.  Should your child/children start exhibiting COVID related symptoms, it is strongly recommended that you contact their primary care physician or the local health department to have them tested immediately.  Also, if anyone in your home is experiencing symptoms, PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL until it is certain they have not been exposed or have quarantined the appropriate amount of time. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s principal. Sincerely, Carl Johnson, Ph.D. Superintendent Jones Public Schools

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States and advocate for gender equality, passed away on Friday, September 18. She was 87 years old. Bader Ginsburg was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1993, becoming only the second woman to serve as a justice. Prior to serving on the Supreme Court, she dedicated her career to gender equality. In 1972, she co-founded the Women's Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and later served as the Project's general counsel. Among her many career victories, she helped ensure that women have the right to financial independence, men receive the same caregiving and Social Security rights as women, employers are not allowed to discriminate against employees based on gender, and schools that receive state funding must admit women. Throughout her lifetime, Justice Bader Ginsburg was a strong advocate for women's rights - what she considered the "constitutional principle of the equal citizenship stature of men and women." She leaves a legacy of dedication, determination, and hope. #RIPJUSTICEBADERGINSBURG

As you may have heard, all in-person in-door college fairs through the OCRA (formally OCD/NCC) organization who schedules the yearly fall college fairs around the state have been cancelled for this year. They are working on some GREAT virtual opportunities, but in the meantime…we threw out an idea to our colleagues for us to host an outdoor college fair. We understand the severity of taking safety precautions, but also know we want to offer opportunities for students to meet recruiters in person (while behind a mask and socially distanced) to open those doors for them even if a little outside of the box of the normal daytime college fair environment. We have gotten SO many interested, that we are ready and willing to do this! We are excited for this opportunity to be able to offer a quality college fair, while keeping faculty, staff, and students safe and healthy! So here is the info and we would LOVE you to share this with your students and parents…and even welcome you to attend if you are free to stop by! Student Registration Link: https://rosestatecollege.formstack.com/forms/outdoor_college_fair Facebook Event (where colleges will be highlighted that are attending): https://www.facebook.com/events/1399011840297402/ *PDF Flyer Attached* The following safety measures are being put in place: · Even though it is an outdoor event, we will be requiring masks to be worn and provide masks to those who arrive without one. We will have hand sanitizer stations at various locations throughout the fair area. Each table will be spaced more than 6 feet apart with social distance markers throughout the outdoor space and in front of each table. · Instead of having students grab materials at each table, students will receive a pre-made “Recruitment Bag” with material from each institution at check-in. When students are walking around, they can either pull out their material at the table to ask questions and/or the recruiter will showcase “This is the book that is in your bag, I encourage you to take time to look at pg. 3 when you get home….” type thing.

Earlier today, the OSSAA board voted to conduct summertime activities in accordance with current Rules and Policies as listed in the Administrator’s Handbook. While many may feel this permits a return to immediate, full participation, Jones Public Schools will take a more measured approach. Over the last several days, Jones Public Schools has been in the process of developing a plan for the safe reintegration of our student-athletes and coaches into summertime activities. We will continue to develop that plan and provide it to our community in the coming days. This plan will ensure compliance with all federal, state, and local health and safety guidelines.

JHS STUDENTS INTERESTED IN EOC NEXT STEP SCHOLARSHIP: Please see the digital Next Step application, attached below. (Students should be able to input data digitally, and do not need to print to fill out) Also, disregard the signature area from the EOC Tech Instructor. Student Services will take care of that on the back end. The Next Step Scholarship will cover tuition at EOC Technology Center in one of our daytime programs. Please visit http://www.eoctech.edu/fulltime-programs/ for more information on program offerings. The Next Step Scholarship does not apply to the Fire Academy or EMT. Students applying for the Next Step application will also need to apply for FAFSA. Some students will have the opportunity to receive a PELL grant that will assist them through the program. If students plan to go to college and do not want to use a year of PELL at EOC Tech, that is totally fine. School Code for EOC Tech: 015867 Students do not have to be currently enrolled in a program to take advantage of the Next Step Scholarship. If a new student is applying, the scholarship will last for the amount of time it takes them to complete the program. For instance, if an adult student attends full-time, they can finish the program within one year. If the student attends half-time, the scholarship will last the two years the student attends. If you could please let your student know that enrollment meetings will be held with Mrs. Christensen once EOC Tech is back in session. Students can submit their completed Next Step Scholarship application to studentservices@eoctech.edu https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/675288/Next_Step_Scholarship_App_.pdf

JHS seniors: Below is updated info from Wichita State University: this point nothing has changed at this point with our deadlines at Wichita State Admissions. Housing sign-ups are going as planned. If students change their mind and have put down a housing deposit, they have until June 1 to get a refund. They just need to email the Housing Office to request a refund. Orientation sign-ups are at www.wichita.edu/orientation and they are working on a hybrid solution of how we will host orientation and we will let students know more once that is decided. Passage 2 Success – I encourage students from diverse backgrounds to sign up for this on-campus program beginning four days before move-in day. Lots of resources, getting to know each other and the WSU & Wichita communities. More information is at www.wichita.edu/p2s May 1 acceptance deadline for scholarships. But, if a scholarship is WDNA (withdrawn for non-acceptance) it can be restored once they’re enrolled and students can work with me to learn more about that should their decision change. Students should still be able to communicate with National Merit Corporation since that’s an online process. And – as with most of the Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) schools, we have no real deadline to apply and be admitted as long as students allow enough time for processing, orientation, and enrollment before the fall semester begins. Our office is still processing applications, transcripts, admission acceptances or exceptions. All of our staff is working remotely except staggered shifts for processing staff.

Dear Longhorn Community, Today during a special board meeting, State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister proposed, and the state school board accepted the recommendation to close all public school buildings through the end of the current academic year. The board also approved the recommendation to allow local districts to design and implement some form of “continuing education” to begin as soon as possible after April 5. This process does not allow for on-site instruction and directs educators to observe the current mandates on social distancing. While we have about 10 days to determine how we can accomplish this, we anticipate some form of distance learning. Distance learning includes two overarching types of instruction. The type that most of our students are familiar with is synchronous instruction. This type of distance learning takes place in an environment where the instructor and learner are in real time communication. It can be through video or audio. There is direct, immediate interaction and feedback during these lessons. An example is the concurrent classes many of our high school students take. There is a video with the instructor at the front of the room or on the computer and they conduct the class much like everyone is in the same room. The other type of distance learning is asynchronous instruction, and it does not necessarily require any type of technology. In this environment, the instruction is conducted through communication that is delayed to meet the specific needs of everyone involved. The instructor may provide content through recorded media, emails, or even snail mail. We expect to utilize both types of distance learning; however, the asynchronous delivery will have to be the primary form as it has the greatest chance to reach all of our students. As you can expect, our implementation will vary from each of our sites; however, you can expect your child’s teacher to make direct contact in the next week. If email is not available, a phone call may be necessary. Our goal is to limit the educational loss that is inevitable during time away from the classroom, and we are committed to ensuring that no student is penalized for a lack of resources during this time. We are hoping to alleviate much of the stress that parents must be feeling while trying to provide instruction on their own. I would encourage parents to use Khan Academy https://www.khanacademy.org/ if available. This is a free resource that is an outstanding tool. Also, we are working on a process to provide mental health resources for all our families when needed. We all have to accept that students across this country and at every level of education will experience some loss in skills. Our goal is to minimize loss by reinforcing current skills, and introduce new skills only where clear opportunities exist for all. Teachers will be prepared for in-depth diagnostic analysis when we return to a traditional setting. We will use that data to determine where to start and create a plan for getting back on track. I know there is considerable anxiety concerning events like championship basketball, baseball, track, prom and graduation. We must continue to follow CDC, federal, state, and governing agency guidelines on social distancing and group events, so we’re limited on options. We continue to have discussions about these events, and we’re looking for ways to maintain these social events that are important to high school students while still being responsible for actions that might affect the health of our community. We are all experiencing this together, so please don’t feel alone or that your child is at risk of falling behind his or her peers. It will not be easy, but I know what we’re made of. None of us will back away from the work or time that it will take to repair what might be damaged, so until we can Turn Those Horns Loose again, we’ll make this work. It’s always A Great Day to be a LONGHORN!! Carl Johnson, Ph.D. Superintendent Jones Public Schools

Install the Zoom client here https://zoom.us/download Download “Zoom Client for Meetings” and install or choose run. Once that is done you will see the Zoom meeting screen.

Dear Longhorn Community, I hope everyone is finding a way to enjoy your extended time with family during this extraordinary time. Regardless of politics or one’s personal inclinations toward news reporting on this crisis, we have a responsibility as Americans to abide by the directives provided by our elected officials. However, we have a responsibility as humans to be sincere in our actions to minimize and eliminate the health threats to ourselves and neighbors. This event brings with it considerable anxiety, and Jones Public Schools wants to be a source of relief not further stress. As you know, the State Board of Education has voted to enact a mandatory, statewide closure of all public schools through April 3 (April 6 is the current return day). This closure may be lengthened due to public health and safety concerns. We encourage everyone to prepare for this possibility should it become necessary. We have instructed all staff, other than specific personnel directed by the administration, to stay away from school grounds. If you have business with the school, please call or email the administration. Offices and all facilities will be closed during this time. Mwatkins@joneshs.k12.ok.us Lelerick@jonesms.k12.ok.us Bguthery@jonesel.k12.ok.us We will provide lunch and breakfast to all students enrolled in Jones Schools beginning Monday, March 23rd. We will use a drive-through type pick-up at the high school. Pick-up will be from 9am until 11am. To avoid chaos (as much as possible), we will stagger the time for pick up by site. Please enter at the baseball gate on 4th street and follow the curb around to the SW entrance. School personnel will be outside with the meals. Elementary families should pick up from 9am until 9:45am. The middle school from 9:45am until 10:30am, and the high school will pick up from 10:30am until 11am. Families will pick-up BOTH meals at once. If you have students at multiple sites, of course you can pick up during either period for all students in the family. If you can’t make your suggested time, please come anytime during pick-up. We do not intend for the process to be a burden. We want to make it as efficient as possible. We expect to learn more as this process continues, so you should expect changes. In a previous message, I told you that we were anticipating a plan to provide some instruction through online platforms; unfortunately, the state department of education has determined that no type of instruction will be allowed. It appears this has something to do with the law that governs this type of shutdown. We will, however, provide resources for at-home, parent led educational activities. Due to social distancing recommendations, we will be reaching out individually to parents to set up a phone or video conference to complete IEP/504 requirements during the school closure. However, if these avenues are not acceptable, parents should work with school personnel to meet once school resumes. After the extended closure has ceased, IEP/504 teams are responsible for reviewing on an individualized basis how the closure impacted the delivery of special education and related services to students eligible for IEP/504 services. Students may need additional or extended school year services (ESY) to make up the missed IEP/504 services. Finally, much like the teacher advocacy days we missed a couple of years ago, we will adjust as needed, and it will most likely be needed often. Please do all you can to be a part of the solution. Sincerely, Carl Johnson, Ph.D. Superintendent Jones Public Schools

The State Department of Education is expected to order all schools in Oklahoma to close until April 6. We appreciate our state leaders being proactive during this health crisis. Our administrative team has been working on plans to support our students and their families as much as we can. We have requested permission from the state to provide meals to all families that need that service. We have to consider the possibility that there will be subsequent, longer closures, so we are also working on plans to provide some modified instruction online. Students who do not have the opportunity to participate in online activities will not be penalized; however, we are working diligently to make sure EVERY student will have that opportunity. We hope to be able to provide details on these plans in the next few days.

Information from University of Tulsa regarding on campus events for high school students The University of Tulsa is closely monitoring the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) and working with the Tulsa Health Department. As of Tuesday, March 10, two cases of the disease have been confirmed in Tulsa County, one of whom is a family member of a student. In light of these developments, TU is implemented its social distancing policy effective Wednesday, March 11. What does that mean for TU students, faculty, staff, and visitors? All scheduled campus visits are canceled. TU Up Close (March 27) and Discover TU (April 10), as well as the Petroleum Engineering Open House (March 26) have been canceled. All classes for current students moved to virtual instruction on Wednesday. We are so disappointed we had to cancel these events, but TU wants to do its part to protect the public and campus community which, unfortunately, results in reducing visitors to campus. Our admission counselors are ready to answer any questions your students may have and will be reaching out to help schedule phone calls with professors and/or university ambassadors. Please encourage your students interested in TU to contact their admission counselors with questions and to continually check their text and email inboxes as we will be sending content that will help them learn more about life as a TU student. Although classes are now being conducted online, our faculty and staff will be available during regular business hours so do not hesitate to let us know if we can help you as we all navigate through these unchartered territories.

We would like to invite JHS students to our annual SHPE Discovery Day that is taking place Saturday, March 7th, 2020 from 9am-3:30pm.

Black History Month Did You Know.... Clara Luper Clara Mae Luper was born in Okfuskee County, Oklahoma, to Ezell and Isabell Shepard on May 3, 1923. She attended all-black schools and was bussed several miles to Grayson High School where she graduated in a class of five. After graduating from the segregated Langston University, Luper became the first African American student to enroll in the history department at the University of Oklahoma, earning a master’s degree in 1951. Luper was one of the early leaders in the civil rights movement in Oklahoma during the 1950s. She taught history in various Oklahoma City public schools for forty-one years and became the sponsor of the Oklahoma City NAACP Youth Council. In 1958, working with this group, she led the earliest “sit-ins” in Oklahoma and some of the first in United States. Through these protests she and other civil rights activists succeeded in integrating many public facilities in Oklahoma City and across the state by 1964. In 1957, Luper escorted her Dunjee High School students to New York City, New York to perform a play she had written, Brother President: The Story of Dr. Martin Luther King, for a national freedom rally. Inspired by non-violent activism, she and her students returned determined to end segregation in Oklahoma. They staged a sit-in at the Katz Drugstore counter in August 1958. This sit-in led to numerous other demonstrations at lunch counters, cafeterias, churches, and amusement parks, as well as marches, voter registration drives, and boycotts. She was arrested twenty-six times for her civil rights activities. The Oklahoma City Council responded with an ordinance ending racial discrimination shortly before the national 1964 Civil Rights Act. Luper participated, as well, in the civil rights marches with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in Washington, D.C. and in Selma, Alabama. Luper also fought for the integration of Oklahoma City schools and organized the Oklahoma City Sanitation Strike in 1969. She was a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 1972, and founded the Freedom Center, Inc. In 1979, she published her memoir, Behold the Walls, and later developed the Black Voices Magazine,now called America’s Voices. Luper also hosted a radio talk show in Oklahoma City between 1960 and 1980. Luper continued to lecture on behalf of racial justice until illness forced her retirement in 2008. Clara Luper received many honors in her later years. She was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame in 2007, a scholarship was established in her name at Oklahoma City University, and Oklahoma City named a street, the Clara Luper Corridor, in her honor. In 2009 she received the National Education Association’s Rosa Parks Memorial Award. Upon her death on June 8, 2011, Oklahoma officials honored her by placing her casket to lie in repose in the rotunda of the state capitol building, and flying flags at half-staff. She is survived by a son, Calvin, and two daughters, Marilyn Hildreth and Chelle Wilson. Sources: Linda W.

Jones High School Bowling team placed 5th at Regionals against 10 teams in our regional. We had one bowler gone for 5 of the first 8 games. We made match play as the 8 seed and bowled the #1 seed (best 3 out of 5 games). This team lost the first 2 games, won the 3rd and almost won the 4th game with a 180 (they lost by 5 pins). Matlyn struck out to force the other team to strike out to beat us. She is a freshman and put the pressure on the Senior from Enid, and he came through for them for the win. We are SO proud of this team and how far they have come. Accomplishments this year was a member being selected to All Conference and All Region. The Team making match play at Windsor, and Regionals, and finishing 5th overall. We have 3 girls (2 that have never bowled before) and 2 boys so we had to bowl in the boys division, which is VERY difficult and VERY competitive. We are so proud of them and I hope our community and their school is equally as proud of them!!

BLACK HISTORY MONTH DID YOU KNOW… Lloyd August Hall was an African-American Chemist. Lloyd Hall devoted much of his life and efforts to food science curing meat, particularly to improving a curing salt marketed by Griffith Laboratories known as flash-drying. This product originated with German chemist Karl Max Seifert, developer of a process whereby solutions of sodium chlorine and one or more secondary salts were sprayed onto hot metal and rapidly dried, producing crystals of the secondary salts encased inside a shell of sodium chloride. Seifert patented the process in 1934 and sold the rights to Griffith Laboratories. The adaptation of Seifert's process specifically for meat curing was then patented by company owner Enoch L. Griffith, who proposed nitrates and nitrites, well-known curing agents, as the secondary butt salts. Lloyd Hall is often falsely credited with the original invention of Seifert's process. However, Hall took a leading role in developing the patent after it was sold to Griffith Laboratories, adding hygroscopic agents such as corn sugar and glycerine to inhibit caking of the powder. Most of his patents in meat curing dealt with either preventing caking of the curing composition, or remedying undesired effects caused by the anticaking agents. Hall also investigated the role of spices in food preservation. It was common knowledge that certain seasonings had antimicrobial properties, but Hall and co-worker Carroll L. Griffith found that some spices carried many bacteria, as well as yeast and mold spores. To counter these problems, they patented in 1938 a means to sterilize spices through exposure to ethylene oxide gas, a fumigant. This method was all but abandoned upon the discovery that ethylene oxide was a toxic carcinogen. Hall and Griffith later promoted the use of ethylene oxide for the sterilization of medical equipment, helping to advance an idea that had been around for several years. Hall also invented new uses of antioxidants to prevent food spoilage, especially the onset of rancidity in fats and oils. Aware that unprocessed vegetable oils frequently contained natural antioxidants such as lecithin that slowed their spoilage, he developed means of combining these compounds with salts and other materials so that they could be readily introduced to other foods. After retiring from Griffith in 1959, Hall consulted for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. From 1962 to 1964, he sat on the American Food for Peace Council. He died in 1971 in Pasadena, California. He was awarded several honors during his lifetime, including honorary degrees from Virginia State University, Howard University, and the Tuskegee Institute and in 2004 he was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame for his work., football and track. He had the opportunity to choose between four colleges and he picked Northwestern University.

The Musical Theater Songwriting Challenge is a program of the Arts Endowment in partnership with the American Theatre Wing (the producers of the Tony Awards among other activities). The goal is to nurture the next generation of songwriters from among the country’s high school students by engaging professional musical theater artists. With the Songwriting Challenge’s emphasis on articulating the components and intent of a song, the program is a dynamic means for realizing the National Core Music Standards for Creating, and specifically the standards for Composition/Theory. From all of the applications submitted to the Songwriting Challenge by students (almost 200 last year), six winners are selected to work with a mentor and music director to hone the student’s original song into a Broadway-ready composition that is then recorded by Broadway musicians and vocalists in New York City. You can learn more about the process at https://www.arts.gov/national-initiatives/songwriting The winning students have all noted that the experience of the Songwriting Challenge is extraordinary and life-changing. And the professional artists are thrilled to be part of invigorating their field with talent and energy. Here is the page for Tessa Barcelo, one of the 2019 winners with a video illustrating her recording session. The deadline is March 6, 2020 at midnight Eastern Time.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH DID YOU KNOW.. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a social activist and Baptist minister who played a key role in the American civil rights movement from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968. King sought equality and human rights for African Americans, the economically disadvantaged and all victims of injustice through peaceful protest. He was the driving force behind watershed events such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the 1963 March on Washington, which helped bring about such landmark legislation as the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 and is remembered each year on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a U.S. federal holiday since 1986.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH DID YOU KNOW…. Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist and political activist. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made some 13 missions to rescue approximately 70 enslaved people, including family and friends, using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. 1. Tubman’s codename was “Moses,” and she was illiterate her entire life. “Come with me if you want to live.” Other Underground Railroad code names included “Canaan” for Canada and Spiritual Songs for directions along the Railroad. Since few slaves were literate, the route of the Underground Railroad had to be accessible to everyone. Tubman used the stars and mosses in the woods to guide her in aiding escapees. 2. She suffered from narcolepsy. When she was a teenage slave, an overseer threw a metal weight at another slave, but it hit Tubman instead. As a result of the head injury, she would often go into sleeping spells and was difficult to wake. She considered the dreams she had during these spells to be religious visions and her religiosity was a guiding reason to helping slaves escape. 3. Her work as “Moses” was serious business. She avoided cops, dogs, mobs, bounty hunters, and slave catchers. She and her escapees slept in swamps and moved only at night. Once with her on the Railroad, she threatened to kill anyone who lost their nerve to escape. She even once had to drug a baby. She once told a man”You go on or die.” Known as the “black ghost,” the bounty on her head was at least $12,000, equal to around $330,000 today. 4. She never lost a slave. She recommended slave escape on Saturdays, as owners used Sundays as a day of rest and would not notice slaves missing until Monday, giving the slave a two day head start. She also preferred to move during winter, when the days are shorter. Estimates of slaves she helped range as high as 3,000. 5. Tubman was a Union scout during the Civil War. She also served as a nurse, cook, and spy to Federal troops from 1862 to 1865. She received $200 for three years of combat service (roughly $5,400 adjusted for inflation). When she applied for veteran’s compensation, it took her 34 years to get it and only after the intervention of President Lincoln’s Secretary of State William Seward. She was 78 years old. 6. She cured dysentery. Her knowledge of the local flora in Maryland led her to find a cure for Union troops suffering from dysentery. She also helped relieve symptoms of Chicken Pox, Cholera, and Yellow Fever. 7. She was the first woman to lead a combat assault. While under the command of Colonel James Montgomery, Harriet Tubman led 150 black Union troops across the Combahee River in South Carolina in June 1863. Using information from escaped slaves, she led Union riverboats through Confederate torpedo traps, freeing 750 slaves and dropping off Union troops. the troops burned the estates of influential Southern secessionists who supplied Confederate forces. She didn’t lose a single troop. 8. She had brain surgery to fix her sleep problems. She refused anesthesia. She opted instead to chew on a bullet, just like Civil War soldiers did when they had a limb amputated.

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.”

ROSE STATE SCHOLARSHIP UPDATES: • Academic Scholars Program UPDATES! We were informed that the OSRHE Academic Scholars Program (Regents Scholarships) has been expanded as of December 9th pending finalization during the 2020 legislative session. So if you see any information online, it is more than likely the old information due to the Governor signing temporary rules until the legislator has finalized. In the past for a Community College, the qualification for consideration was a minimum of a 29 ACT with some additional current GPA/Class Rank options. Our institution has only had 5 to give out where they receive a tuition waiver plus $900 for books, fees, etc. o New! For a Community College, the qualification for consideration as a Regents Scholar is a minimum of a 26 ACT (or SAT equivalent) and 3.7 min GPA. The students will now receive an increase of $1100 to use for books/fees and Rose State College now will have 10 to award versus 5. We are excited to see more students eligible for this amazing scholarship. This is another reason to encourage students to indicate they would like to be considered for leadership seeing as our Regents Scholarships fall in that category! If you do not know much about the Academic Scholars Program, check out this link for more info: https://content.xap.com/media/7643/asp-program-rules.pdf. When we hear this has been signed in during the session, I will email you…but we have been told we can use these updates due to the Governor signing a temporary rule revision!

JHS SENIORS: Mattress Nerd has been paying attention to the many voices of students across the globe who have recently been calling for a change in our living habits and the way we consume and recycle. We are working in an industry where new technology is being developed all of the time to ensure that mattresses will be longer-lasting and produced with more environmental materials, and we want to ensure that our readership understands the options available to them to be mindful with their mattress disposal. Despite the push in awareness regarding needed changes in how we dispose of our waste, we don’t believe there is enough information out there on the different ways of reusing and recycling our products when they are no longer of value to us. We’d love to hear from more students with a dedication to sustainability and conscientious buying so we can build on our own knowledge and be a contributor to offering an insight on how people can live more environmentally friendly. The best essay will be awarded with a $1000 scholarship for their contribution to this important cause. For More information and to apply go to https://www.mattressnerd.com/scholarship/

JHS SENIORS THAT ARE GOING TO MAJOR IN A SCIENCE RELATED FIELD: We are excited to announce the Jimmie L Dean Scholarship Foundation is now taking applications for the 2020-2021 academic year through April 15, 2020 at our website www.jimmiedeanfoundation.org Every year since 2010, we have provided individual scholarships of up to $10,000 per year to outstanding Oklahoma students who attend Oklahoma colleges and Universities. Since our first awards in the 2010-2011 School year we have provided actual funds of almost $1 million. Our mission is to provide financial assistance to Oklahoma students who will attend Oklahoma colleges and universities that we feel will remain in out great state after graduation and contribute to the Oklahoma economy for many years. This award does not consider income levels, hardship conditions, or a specific entrance test score (although we do require a minimum 25 ACT score for 4 year colleges and Universities and 17 for OSUIT students). We do take into consideration the test score when trying to project a student's success in their chosen major area of study. We are simply looking for true Oklahomans who may find themselves in the position of not having sufficient funds to attend college but have income levels that preclude them from receiving enough financial assistance to cover their costs of attendance. Our awards are structured in a manner to fill in the gap between the scholarships and awards already earned by a student and the cost of tuition and academic fees plus room and board charges, with the goal to eliminate or reduce the need for student debt. The qualities we are looking for are students who are responsible citizens who have worked hard and have achieved good academic standing. We view a student's work history, their expected major, their academic achievement and recommendations from those they have been associated with as a body of work to eventually make our decision as to who will receive an award. Our application form provides an avenue for a short student essay to allow them to introduce themselves to our foundation. We rely upon this to help select our finalists each year. We encourage you to communicate to prospective students they take this opportunity very seriously. You would be surprised as to how many essays simply state the students need for money or tell us about the other members of their family but really nothing about themselves. In all candor we already know they need money or they would not be applying and telling us about family members is only relevant if it provides insight into the student. We want to know about the student, what jobs they have held, what would make them a good investment for us, and how do they exemplify the qualities of the Foundation. Our awards are primarily awarded to students who will be pursuing degrees that are science related rather than arts majors. Therefore, some of the majors we will not consider are music, performing arts, English, literature, Psychology, Sociology, Journalism, Business, Pre-law, Political Science, Music, Education or similar majors. In short, we are looking for students who are wanting to make or build things or serve in a health science field.

JHS AMERICAN INDIAN SENIORS INTERESTED IN NURSING: American Indian Nurse Scholarship Program The American Indian Nurse Scholarship Award Program (AINS) was started by the NSCDA in 1928 to give students of American Indian descent the opportunity to pursue careers in nursing. The students are expected to return to work among their people to help improve health care. Some students work on reservations, and others find employment in hospitals in areas largely populated by American Indians. Intended originally to benefit females only, the program has expanded to include males and the career goals now include not only nursing careers, but jobs in health care and health education, as well. The current goal is to grant a $1,500 scholarship each semester, as long as the student remains in academic good standing. The scholarship money is restricted to tuition and specific academic expenses. To meet the financial demands of their education, many students seek additional government grants and subsidies and maintain part-time jobs For more information and to get application go to https://nscda.org/student-resources/scholarship-opportunities/

Every 15 minutes a teenager dies in the United States due to dangerous decisions related to drugs, alcohol, etc. This program today will provide a small demonstration. Every 15 minutes the Grim Reaper will come and pull a student out of class. This student will be painted up to be the Walking Dead. These individuals will return to class but will be unable to interact with their peers for remainder of school day. Remember we emphasize this information during Red Ribbon Week, but please carry this information year round. DO NOT DO DRUGS/ALCOHOL!!!

Today's Red Ribbon Week Facts are about Prescription Drugs: • Enough painkillers were prescribed in 2010 to medicate each American adult every four hours for one month. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] • Every day in the US, 2,500 youth (ages 12 to 17) abuse a prescription pain reliever for the first time. Drugfreeworld.org • Deaths from prescription painkillers have reached epidemic levels in the past decade. CDC • Teens who abuse prescription drugs are 2x as likely to use alcohol, 5x more likely to use marijuana, and 12-20x more likely to use illegal street drugs. National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse • Almost 50% of teens believe that prescription drugs are much safer than illegal street drugs – they’re not. Drugfreeworld.org • After marijuana and alcohol, prescription drugs are the most commonly abused substances by Americans age 14 and older. National Institute on Drug Abuse • Most teens get these prescribed medicines from friends or relatives. Rarely do teens abuse medicine prescribed in their own name. The Stark County Educational Service Center • In 2013, 15% of high school seniors admitted to abusing a prescription drug during the year prior. Village Behavioral Health • Among many others, some long-term effects of prescription drugs are self-harming behaviors, organ damage and failure (especially to kidneys), and death.

Today's Red Ribbon Week facts relate to alcohol: • Drinking too much can weaken your immune system, making your body a much easier target for disease. Drinking a lot on a single occasion slows your body’s ability to ward off infections – even up to 24 hours after. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism • Teen drivers are 3 times more likely than more experienced drivers to be in a fatal crash. Drinking any alcohol greatly increases this risk for teens. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention • People who have their first drink at age 14 or younger are six times more likely to develop alcohol problems than those who don’t try alcohol until the legal drinking age. Helpguide.org • For adolescents ages 15 to 20, alcohol is implicated in more than a third of driver fatalities resulting from automobile accidents and about two-fifths of drowning cases. Helpguide.org • 4,358 people under age 21 die each year from alcohol-related car crashes, homicides, suicides, alcohol poisoning, and other injuries such as falls, burns, and drowning. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism • The age limit of 21 years old for alcohol is based on research which shows that young people react differently to alcohol. Teens get drunk twice as fast as adults, but have more trouble knowing when to stop, binge drinking more often than adults. Mothers Against Drunk Driving-Why 21 • Combining drugs raises the risks of brain damage, heart attack, stroke and overdose exponentially. An average of 2.7 drugs is involved in every fatal overdose. shatterproof.org

JHS Jones Against Drugs is sharing facts to our student body daily during Red Ribbon Week. These facts are from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Today's facts relate to Marijuana> • Marijuana is 300% more potent now than 20 years ago. It causes significant changes to blood flow in the brain, leading to diminished cognition and judgment. shatterproof.org • About 9 percent of those who use marijuana will become addicted. This rate increases to 17 percent of those who start in their teens, and goes up to 25 to 50 percent among daily users. National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) • Regular use of marijuana has been linked to depression, anxiety, and a loss of drive or motivation, which means a loss of interest even in previously enjoyable activities. Its effects can be unpredictable, especially when mixed with other drugs. NIDA • After alcohol, marijuana is the drug most often linked to car accidents, including those involving deaths. Marijuana affects skills required for safe driving—alertness, concentration, coordination, and reaction time. Marijuana makes it hard to judge distances and react to signals and sounds on the road. NIDA • The human brain continues to develop into the early 20s. Exposure to addictive substances, including marijuana, may cause changes to the developing brain that make other drugs more appealing. This may be why some people who use marijuana go on to try other drugs. NIDA • Between January and May 2015, Poison Control Centers reported 3,572 calls related to synthetic marijuana use, or Spice, an increase from the 1,085 calls during the same period last year. Spice abusers who have been taken to Emergency Rooms report symptoms including rapid heart rate, increased blood pressure, reduced blood supply to the heart, vomiting, agitation, confusion and hallucinations.

JHS Students turning 18 this year: Pre-registration Open for Young Voters at 17.5 Starting Nov 1 Oklahoma citizens will be able to pre-register to vote when they turn 17.5 years old thanks to a new law going into effect on November 1. Sen. Jason Smalley, R-Stroud, and Rep. Zack Taylor, R-Seminole, authored Senate Bill 496 this past session to make it easier for young voters to remember to get registered to vote before they turn 18. “Voting is one of our greatest freedoms, and that first time to vote is such a memorable experience. Unfortunately, many forget that they have to register 60 days before the election and end up not being able to vote until the following year,” Smalley said. “Hopefully, by using age rather than a specific time period, it’ll be easier for people to remember to get registered to vote and we’ll see more of Oklahoma’s youth getting involved in the voting process.” Currently, a 17-year-old can pre-register to vote 60 days before an election if their 18th birthday is on or before election day. The new law will allow citizens to pre-register when they turn 17.5 regardless of when the election occurs as long as they will turn 18 on or before election day.

Red Ribbon Week is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention awareness campaign. Today, millions of people celebrate. Red Ribbon Week started after the death of Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who in 1985 was brutally murdered by drug traffickers he was investigating in Mexico. After his death, people wanted to honor his sacrifice. Local celebrations began in California – where Camarena grew up – in 1985, and in 1988 the National Family Partnership started the first National Red Ribbon Week. As a tribute to Camarena during the initial local celebrations, high school friend Henry Lozano and Congressman Duncan Hunter, created “Camarena Clubs” and the wearing of a red ribbon to show their oppositions to drugs.
