We are pleased to announce that our quarterly Forward Thinking Partnership Program grant has been awarded to Jackson Storyfest. Jackson Storyfest received $1,000.00 to help fund the twenty-seventh annual cultural and educational storytelling event. Teachers, students, and the general public are welcome. This free event promotes literacy, listening skills, and develops a greater cross-cultural understanding. Jackson Storyfest encourages imagination and helps people to realize that everyone is a storyteller.
