A JDHS Pleads the Case For Basketball Travel
Hello everyone, my name is Mackenzie Jackson. I’m a senior at Juneau-Douglas High School, and have been lead manager for the JDHS Men Basketball program for the last three years. This basketball team has treated me as a equal, and apart of the team since day one. These young men work hours upon hours on making themselves better players on and off the court. After all these years I been apart of this program, this year especially, has shown me what true determination and drive to their goal which is playing in the state championship. Hindering these young men from reaching their goal after such a troubling year, will absolutely crush them mentally. It’s been a full year since the complete shut down, and we’ve taken as many precautions as told to do so, and more. For our community to move forward through this pandemic, we need to take the steps to do so, with all the precautions we will take. I hope you have it in your hearts to reconsider your decision. I know this is a difficult decision, I just hope you reconsider. Thank you for your time.
