Maynard Jackson High School Principal Stephanie Johnson has gone above and beyond her duties in leading her school.

Ms. Jackson has created “Mission Possible: Summer Opportunity”.

The “Mission Possible” program is designed to find Maynard Jackson High students summer jobs.

This summer two job fair events were held that resulted in almost 500 jobs for students. Employers, including Barnes & Noble, the City of Atlanta, Atlanta History Museum, and Emory University, have hired students at wages between $7.50 and $14 per hour.

All volunteers receive training, free parking and a catered meal provided by Carole Parks Catering.
