Jason has always been hard working and caring. He always gives extra time to his students, church; friends and family. He is a great teacher, father, and son and is very deserving of this recognition. His mother and I are very proud of him and always have been.

Mr. West has been a great role model for myself and so many students. Without his influence I probably wouldn't have made the decision to stay in the agricultural field as I went into college and pursue animal science which I'm more than happy with. I owe him a lot of thanks for all the hard work he's put into helping myself and others grow into strong leaders and learners as we transitioned in and out of his classroom. You deserve this West!
