Lafayette, Ind. (WLFI) - Jobs for America's Graduates hosted a Career Development Conference for students Friday.

They were able to network with manufacturers and schools, as well as participate in competitions like public speaking.

Winners were given awards and cash prices to go toward schooling.

Those who placed first will now compete against other JAG students across Indiana at the state conference.

McCutcheon Student Montez Thornton attended today's conference.

He says being in the JAG class has set the course for his life.

"If you have a choice you need to join this class," Thornston said. "It has changed my life in ways I can't even tell you. It has me prepared for the future and I know it can prepare anyone watching."

JAG's graduation rate is above 90 percent.

Indiana First Lady Janet Holcomb was the conference's key note speaker.
