  • JCPS Difference Maker Award


    The JCPS Difference Maker Award is presented to district staff members and community partners who've gone above and beyond to serve our students, staff members and schools. Difference Makers are individuals, teams or groups who have made (or are making) a difference in our district. Nominate a Difference Maker here!

    JCPS will thank all Difference Makers nominated, and some, like those pictured below, will be recognized monthly at the JCPS Board of Education meeting. We love to spotlight Difference Makers that are tied to each of our three organizational pillars: Learning, Partnerships and Stewardship. 



  • July Difference Maker - Jordan Hart  

     Jordan Hart, JCHS Speech and Debate Advisor 

    Mr. Jordan Hart, advisor for the JCHS speech and debate team, (pictured left) was recognized for his work with 60 JCHS students this year. The group participated in 10 tournaments, including 13 students participating in Nationals in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in June. Will Henrickson (pictured center) shared his humorous interpretation titled “Reluctant Prophets” with the Board of Education at its July meeting. Will also expressed his gratitude for the enlightening experience he has had as a member of the speech and debate team, crediting his experience with helping to form the type of student he became during high school, and the type of citizen he will become in the future.
