The Jackson Chapter of the Mississippi Engineering Society has been active since the first executive order regarding Covid-19 was put in place. For the last two months, in lieu of the chapter luncheon, those funds have been given to a local charity helping those experiencing added stress during this time. Additionally, the chapter has coordinated with Jackson Public Schools (JPS) to provide books for young readers. Today, members were present at 6 schools handing out books to students and their families as they collected their schoolwork and lunches. On Wednesday, another 6 schools will be served. When we’re done, over 4000 books will have been distributed. We are proud of our very own, Rick Sumrall, P.E. for participating in such an important community event this week.
