Jacob Dooley

Rotary Club Student of the Month

Mr. Jacob Dooley is Alcorn Central’s final Rotary Student for the 2016-2017 school year.  Jacob is the son of William and Jamie Dooley and the brother of Lee Dooley. Jacob is ranked 3rd in his senior class, and is a member of the ACHS Hall of Fame. During his high school career he has received awards in the English classes, Math classes, and History classes.  Jacob has really excelled in classes at our Alcorn County Technical & Career School.  He received the Entrepreneurship Award; he was their Career Delegate and the ACTC Student of the Quarter. 

Jacob is very involved in clubs and groups at ACHS and ACTC:  He is in Beta Club, he serves as Treasurer of the Theater club, he is a student mentor,  he is a member of  ACTC National Technical Society, Educator’s Rising, FCA, Class Representative and Online Honor Society.

When Jacob  moved to ACHS in 9th grade he really submersed himself in theatre, but last year he took an interest in athletics and has proven to be just as much of an asset in that arena.  He served as the ACHS Basketball team manager this year and was a varsity tennis team member last year.

Jacob’s high school schedule has been full of community service activities and volunteering.  He has helped with the Magnolia Regional Health Centers Winter Wonderland and Company Picnic, he has been a Mission of Hope Camp Leader and Sunday School teacher, he helped with the Mississippi Special Olympics, ACHS Reading Fair, ACHS Beautification Project, ACTC Free Little Library, and Teacher Academy Field Experience. 

After graduation Jacob will be attending Millsaps College where he is going to pursue a degree in History and hopes to return to the Alcorn School District  to teach.

Jacob is a conscientious goal setter and thus far, there isn’t one goal that he has set for himself that he hasn’t accomplished.  His smile can be seen constantly in the halls and his encouragement felt by so many fellow schoolmates.  He doesn’t meet a stranger and is always kind to everyone.

Alcorn Central is extremely proud of Jacob’s accomplishments and pleased to have Jacob Dooley as our Rotary Student of the Month.
