Hundreds Celebrate JAG-K Day at the K

On Sept 29, Royals Charities provided more than 1,000 free tickets for JAG-K to attend at a Kansas City Royals game. Our program was featured on the scoreboard as one of the game’s special guests. For many of the JAG-K students and their families in attendance, it was their first visit to Kauffman Stadium.

It was a very special opportunity for JAG-K students to attend the game with their families, classmates and Career Specialists. Making the evening all the more special was that I was allowed to represent JAG-K in the Buck O'Neil Legacy Seat, which is dedicated to the memory of Negro League player and longtime coach and scout Buck O’Neil who became a Kansas City celebrity prior to his death in 2006. What a great honor!
