Monroe High class of 1986 is making a difference

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The Monroe High School Tornadoes class of 1986 is making a difference in the community.

The graduates dawned their green and gold and held a cookout Saturday morning.

They prepared sausages and chicken at the Albany Rescue mission.

Everyday the mission helps needy men, women, and children who turn them for help, including food.

The group says what they do for others is the only thing that really matters, and hope they can encourage more graduates from Monroe and other area high schools to do the same.

"Monroe Class of 1986, there's something about that tornado spirit, you don't loose it, it grows. Even our out of town classmates they've donated even though they can't physically be here," said Ricky D. Jackson, Monroe High, Class of 1986.

The class has been raising money and giving back to their neighborhood through several charity events leading up to the celebration of their 25th class reunion next year.
