Jones High School was featured on The Ellen Show today for a wonderful reason.
The Jones High chorus was invited to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City and have been diligently raising money for the trip.
The total cost of the trip is $200,000 and Principal Kirby said the students have raised nearly half of the money required for the trip through car washes, singing at different events, and just being in the community.
Ellen surprised the band and choir director as well as the students with a check from Walmart for $100,000.
The Morning MIX got to speak to Allison and Jamal from Jones High School on the air:
