Customers at the sixth annual iJAG Cookie Walk at the PHS Commons Saturday were met by iJAG Specialist Tina Lutterman, center, in a Santa hat and about a dozen student-bakers in the program.

The sixth annual Perry High School Cookie Walk and PHS Iowa Jobs for America’s Graduates (iJAG) Awareness Day drew a lot of customers to the PHS Commons for fresh-baked goodies Saturday morning.

Holiday cookie lovers could choose from more than two dozen kinds of cookies offered at $12 a pound.

“The students baked almost all the cookies themselves,” said iJAG Specialist Tina Lutterman, “using ingredients that were donated locally.”

Between the plates piled high with cookies were individual testimonials from PHS iJAG students, who told what the program has meant to them and what skills they have learned i iJAG classes.

All proceeds from the annual PHS Cookie Walk help support service projects and class activities for students taking iJAG classes at Perry High. The PHS iJAG program was started in 2012.

The PHS iJAG goals include a 100 percent graduation rate from PHS, increased student participation in the school and community, greater student awareness of opportunities after high school in college, careers and the military and developing students’ leadership, problem-solving and communications skills.
