Marietta High Educator Nominee
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Jannon Barker Memorial Award
DeJarnett, MHS Coordinator Pennies School & Youth program

MARIETTA, GA - Kibbie DeJarnett, a French teacher at Marietta High School (MHS), Student Council Sponsor, Junior Class Advisement Team Leader, and School Coordinator of the Georgia Pennies School & Youth program, is a nominee for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) LLS Jannon Barker Memorial Award. Only eight school sponsors statewide, selected out of 778 schools that participate in the Pennies for Patients program, receive the award each year.

“Giving back to our community and to others is an important part of being a staff member or student at Marietta High School,” said Leigh Colburn, MHS Principal. “I applaud the efforts of Ms. DeJarnett and her work with our student council to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She is a model of compassion and service leadership, and works every day to make a positive difference in the lives of others. As the sponsor of our student council, she is influencing our student leaders to do the same.”

The Jannon Barker Memorial Award named in honor of Jannon Barker, who led her school’s Pennies for Patients program for three years before losing her own battle to leukemia, is awarded to Georgia School & Youth coordinators who demonstrate dedication to the LLS mission and inspire students to make change.
