Jackson High School

Jackson High School’s Leah Shin is one of Washington’s top youth volunteers

Lea Shin received one of the two 2015 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards in Washington State.

When told she was one of just two students in Washington to win the 2015 Prudential Spirit of Community Award all Shin could think of was others, “… the immense support I received from my family, the Literacy for Love team, Henry M. Jackson High School, the University of Washington Foster School of Business: Young Executives of Color Program, and most importantly the entire Mill Creek/Bothell community.”

Jackson High School students inspire local school districts to support Marysville Pilchuck High School

This Twitter and Instagram campaign started on Monday, October 27th. By the next day, there were over 500 posts using the hashtag.

After the shooting at Marysville Pilchuck High School (MPHS), Jackson High School students coordinated with local high schools to generate unified support. The associated student body (ASB) officers contacted several high schools to suggest making posters for students and staff to sign and show their support.

In addition, a group of students at Jackson High School started a social media campaign personalizing support for the students at Marysville Pilchuck.

The idea is simple: cut out a paper heart, write “MP” on it, take a picture of yourself or friends holding the heart, and then share it on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #MPinOurHearts.
