The Southeast Indiana Workforce Investment Board Announces Expansion of Jobs for America’s Graduates Program in Decatur County.

Greensburg Community High School, North Decatur Jr Sr High, and South Decatur Jr Sr High are the three being added with this expansion.

(Greensburg, IN) - The Southeast Indiana Workforce Investment Board (SEIWIB) announced the expansion of the Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) program into three High Schools in Decatur County.

Greensburg Community High School, North Decatur Jr Sr High, and South Decatur Jr Sr High are the three being added with this expansion.

This expansion was possible by a recent donation from Honda to support SEIWIB’s best-in-state JAG implementation throughout southeast Indiana.

“The JAG program is very impactful for students, preparing them for successful, sustainable careers, said Roxanna Metz, Plant Lead at the Honda Indiana Auto Plant. “Honda recognizes the importance of building the future generation of workforce and we are proud to support the expansion of JAG in our community.” 

“The growth of Indiana’s JAG program ensures opportunities for a new generation of student leaders in Southeast Indiana,” said Tom Hunter, Superintendent of Greensburg Schools.

 Southeast Indiana Workforce Investment Board’s JAG will now serve approximately 520 active participants and an additional 200 young adults in a follow-up program each academic year. These graduates have a 99% graduation rate and, in 2023, area JAG students secured $1.7 million in college scholarships.

 This expansion will add these three schools to the list of schools like Lawrenceburg High School, Madison Consolidated High School, Milan High School, South Dearborn High School, South Ripley High School, Jac-Cen-Del High School, and Switzerland County High School.
