The "Wives Behind the Badge" Organization is sponsoring a "Paint the Town Blue" Campaign throughout the month of May. The Law and Public Safety Class at MCTC is encouraging students, teachers and community members to support this campaign. Community members can hang blue ribbons, decorate store windows and use social media to show our local officers that they are supported. Law and Public Safety students Sabrina Paynter and Holly Riffe created the bulletin board pictured below to show support for this campaign. They did a terrific job!
President Gee, WVU faculty representatives, the Mountaineer mascot and some JMHS Mountaineer students visited with Monroe County students in grades 5-12 on Tuesday, May 31 at JMHS. President Gee spoke of the great community students will find in Morgantown and challenged students to join Mountaineer Nation after graduation. The first female Mountaineer mascot spoke to students about pursuing their dreams and persevering through challenges they may face. JMHS graduates, Jared Boone & Brian Young, spoke how the large university quickly becomes a small community when on campus. Both of our graduates are excelling at WVU, and we were happy to welcome them back to JMHS!

The James Monroe High School Youth Leadership Association has actively pursued participation in all aspects of the YLA organization, including any ceremonies hosted by the organization. On Thursday, April 21st 2016, YLA Officers Bryce Dickerson (Youth Secretary of Military Affairs and Public Safety) and Antonella Blanco (President of the General Assembly for Model United Nations) attended the Spirit of the Mountains ceremony in Charleston, to honor Governor Tomblin and First Lady Joanne Tomblin with the YLA Service Award. The ceremony attracted many important political figures that both students had the opportunity to meet and converse with. This ceremony is attended only by those who receive an invitation, making both Bryce and Antonella incredibly lucky students. The Spirit of the Mountains ceremony is an event that the James Monroe High School YLA intends to continue to attend over the course of the upcoming years
