Laurel High School Senior featured in college magazine

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - This is a news release from Laurel High School

Laurel High School senior Jaelyn Taylor was recently featured on the spring cover of Connections magazine, a publication of the Mississippi State University Research and Curriculum Unit.

Taylor is one of the first Mississippi Scholars Tech Master students in the state. The Laurel High School Career & Technical Center participated in the Tech Master pilot program for the 2013-14 school year, which is being piloted in seven counties throughout the state.

The Tech Master program, much like Mississippi Scholars, is geared toward encouraging students to pursue a more rigorous course of study and standards, but with an emphasis in career and technical education.
