Nichols Student News
News from a student's view.
Previous years content is being added and updated on a regular basis. Links below include shows and news stories from previous years since Jay City News came into existence in 2013. The program changed administrations to fall under the supervision of Nichols Career Center in the 2017 school year and was re-branded "Nichols Student News.
We hope you enjoy the content and encourage students to continue to reach for their dreams of pursuing careers as reporters, photo journalists and video production specialists. Thank you for your patience as the JCN website is being transferred to its new location.
