At the Jackson High School Honors Program May 13, Sandra Haisten of the Butts County Life Enrichment Team (LET) recognized the 73 students who had achieved perfect attendance through the entire 2009-2010 school year. Haisten spoke of how LET had targeted attendance as a problem in Butts County schools several years ago, and said the group was pleased with the improved attendance at all grade levels in recent years.
