How do you see JRHS impacting the students for their lives ahead? “JRHS gives students real time opportunities to become true followers of Jesus, of Whom Scripture says:   Jesus matured, growing up in both body and spirit, blessed by both God and people. I have seen that growing/happening over the five years it has been my privilege to serve on the Board.  Many of our graduates are already living examples of the mission of our school of Christ.”
