Today at approximately 10:15 a.m. a construction worker at the Jacksboro High School Gym construction site went into cardiac arrest. Jacksboro Police, Fire, and Faith Community Hospital EMTs were dispatched to the high school campus and immediately began CPR. The worker was transported by ambulance to Faith Community Hospital. No JHS students or staff were involved in this incident. Please join us in praying for the construction worker and his family.

We are so lucky to have Brian at JISD.
