Today's Learners... Tomorrow's Leaders!
Former NFL wide-receiver and Five-Time Pro-Bowler, Harold Jackson visited Hawkins Elementary on Tuesday, September 20. Jackson played 16 years in the NFL with the Rams, Eagles, Vikings, Patriots, and Seahawks, and then went on to a career as coach with the Buccaneers, Patriots and the New Orleans Saints. Jackson spoke to the students about his career and the importance of education. He encouraged the children to listen to their teachers and read at least one book per month. Jackson is currently eligible for the NFL Hall of Fame and the students presented him with a petition to induct him.
