Gov. Sam Brownback will visit Wichita’s East High School on Tuesday to meet with teenagers enrolled in a program designed to help guide at-risk students to a career after graduation.

Jobs for America’s Graduates, a national program more than three decades old, made its debut in Kansas last year at 25 high schools. The program offers at-risk students a support system that’s meant to keep them on track to graduate and steer them toward college and job training.

Brownback will visit East High, one of the schools, at about noon on Tuesday to meet with students, the school’s principal, Ken Thiessen, and JAG’s president, Matt Fearing.
