NMS Student is Featured in Valdosta Scene Magazine for Doing Good in the Community

Jasmine Lewis is a 6th grader at J.L. Newbern Middle School who cares strongly about her community and others. In 2018, she founded the Be Great Foundation with her grandmother, Ms. Shalonda Harris.  Because of this, Lewis was featured in the October 2019 issue of Valdosta Scene Magazine.

Lewis stated in the article, "I want me and a group of kids to get together, give back to the community and be great." Recently, Lewis fed LAMP residents grilled hamburgers and hot dogs with chips and sodas. Last winter, Lewis gave out 'blessing bags' to those in need.

Jasmine's ultimate goal is to continuously help those in need. Way to go, Jasmine, your NMS and VCS families are proud of your endeavors and we support you!
