In October of 2014, the Little Rock School District launched a new student-athlete recognition program. Recognizing the importance that athletic competition can have in developing well-rounded, achievement-driven students, the district now recognizes an athlete, or in some cases athletes, to feature as the “LRSD Athlete of the Month.”
Parkview Patriots Quarterback Koilon Jackson, a junior, was named Student Athlete of the Month for September. In 5 games he has 34 rushing, 806 passing, 1 rushing TD, 14 passing TD’s and 2 interceptions.
Koilon was instrumental in the recent Parkview Patriot win over rival Little Rock Catholic (35-5). In addition to the important leadership role he plays on the team, Koilon is a solid student who volunteers at his dad’s center, P.A.R.K. (Positive Atmosphere Reaches Kids). P.A.R.K. is a non-profit organization which was established in 1993 by Keith Jackson. The mission of P.A.R.K. is to provide "high-risk" students the opportunity to further their education by completing high school so they can attend college.
