The JA Board of Trustees presented, on behalf of JA faculty, staff, and students, a special honor for Ray Higgins: The SOAR program has been named the Ray Edgar Higgins SOAR program.

Board chair Ashley Willson presented a beautiful etched plaque and read the following resolution:

“In view of Ray Higgins’ enormous contributions for over four decades to Jackson Academy and his desire and vision to minister to students through experiencing God’s creation and challenging them outside of their comfort zones and in view of the legacy of service to others and the eternal impact he has made in the lives of JA students, the Board of Trustees of Jackson Academy is hereby RESOLVED that, the SOAR program shall henceforth and forever be known as the Ray Edgar Higgins SOAR program.”
