    Hello!
    We are so honored to have Coco featured as a High Achiever. As a family we continue to encourage her to give 110% at everything she does and always be a leader. You can be a great Christian, a great athlete, as well as a straight A student if you continue to BELIEVE and stay humble. Two things she continues to live by, 1. God doesn’t bless you just for you, but so you can be a blessing and 2. The Jones never say “can’t”!
