Oakes gives back to middle school
Nathan Oakes (center) recently donated the blue blazer he wore as a student ambassador, along with funds he raised through his church and volunteer efforts, to Eaton-Johnson Middle School. The donations were received by Dr. Priscilla Chavis-Lockley (left), who leads the ambassador’s program at the school. Joining them is Mary Mangum of the Vance County Early College High School. Oakes is a junior at the early college. The donations were spurred by the positive treatment Oakes received at Eaton-Johnson.
