As the 2016-2017 school year rapidly comes to a close, John P Powell Middle School PTO held its annual LaFayette Jr High Athletic and Band members banquet, for an awesome year!!
Their guest speaker was Lafayette native, Jared Washington. He spoke words of wisdom to our youth with his speech “Preparation and Expectations”. He also stressed the importance of being respectful at all times to everyone that you encounter, no matter the role or title they may hold.
With hearing this speech, we hope that all our of student athletes and band members begin to prepare for next year, set goals, and achieve those goals with high expectations.
A tremendous “Thank You” goes out to Jared for taking time out of his schedule to inspire the future of Lafayette. The ceremony concluded after a delicious dinner was served by our great J.P. Powell’s PTO and the students received recognition by receiving trophies.
