On Saturday, May 6, 2017 a special event was held to honor and celebrate the life and legacy of Jackie Ward.
Jackie Ward was an advocate for the education of children and families in our community and an inspiration to all she touched. Tragically, her life was cut short far too soon.
The Jackie Ward Foundation was created in her name to enrich and enhance an otherwise general education by introducing students to the life-changing power of the Arts, while promoting business, entrepreneurship, science, technology, engineering and math education. The overall goal of the Jackie Ward Foundation is to ignite and galvanize those who will eventually take on roles as community leaders and trailblazers.
The event included a special performance by local singer-songwriter, Ally Jordan, and comedy by Karl Snow.
