South Mountain Works Coalition Requests to work with Jaguar News Students

Posted by Community Relations on 5/3/2016

The South Mountain Works Coalition came to Jaguar News and because of the students’ previous work with the Phoenix Police Department, asked if they would create some #southabovetheinfluence PSA’s (public service announcements) about issues at South that could be addressed. The Jaguar News students created two PSA’s-one on the dangers of drinking and mixing over the counter medications and the other about cigarette smoking. The PSA’s were shown at the Town Hall meeting held at South for students and were sent out to media outlets. The SMW Coalition asked JohnJay VanEs (KISS FM dejay) if he would surprise students at South with a visit in recognition of their hard work on the PSA’s. He came April 28 and watched the PSA’s, provided feedback, talked to the future broadcasters and answered questions.
