More and more students in Montana are graduating from high school and a lot of the success is being credited to the "Jobs for Montana Graduates" program.

The 22nd annual JMG Fall leadership conference was held on Tuesday in Helena where students from across Montana gathered to learn about leadership and development skills.

First Lady Lisa Bullock encouraged the students to identify their talents and learn how to use them.

"Their success from their choice to graduate matters to their families, it matters to their teachers, it matters to their communities, it matters to their Governor, it matters to me. To be able to come here and celebrate in that success and be amongst the students is a gift," she said.

The theme of this year's conference was Student Voice. 

More info on the program from the Montana Department of Labor and Industry:

Jobs for Montana’s Graduates promotes students to stay in school through graduation and work with them to successfully transition from school into employment, post-secondary education, apprenticeship, the military, or where their path takes them.

We currently serve over 1,000 students in 33 High Schools, 12 Middle Schools, 7 Alternative High Schools and 2 "Out-of-School" programs.
