On August 24, 2020 Thurston Allen from Jonesboro State Bank presented the Jackson Parish School Board with a $45,000 donation to assist the School Board for the purchase of handicap accessible playground equipment for Jonesboro Hodge Elementary School and Quitman High School. Jackson Federation of Teachers, Jackson Parish Bank, Hodge Bank and Trust and Walmart also graciously contributed to this project. Through the collaboration of our community partners and The Jackson Parish School Board, the students at Jonesboro Hodge Elementary and Quitman High School will have a Sway Fun installed, which will be accessible for all students to interactively play together. Our heartfelt thanks go to Jonesboro State Bank and our other community partners for their contributions to this project.
