Work Ethic Certificate

The JCHS Work Ethic Certificate is an opportunity to create a partnership between Jennings County Schools and our local business community. This partnership will open our students’ eyes to the industry and businesses that are looking for employees who possess the skills outlined in the WEC. This will also help to educate our students on many of the businesses in our community and what opportunities are available to them post-graduation. 

Our goal is that the WEC will benefit the student body through a better understanding of local employment opportunities and an incentive to strive for their best during their high school experience. We also hope that the WEC will help our local business community identify the best of our student body for post-graduation employment.
