Adopt-a-School Partnerships


At Brown Bottling Group, our involvement in the community is an important part to our business. Team Members from Brown Bottling’s Jackson-area offices joined forces to serve as judges for the North Jackson Elementary “Reading Fair” on October 18th.  Pepsi has served as the official Adopt-A School partner at North Jackson for 36 years.  The partnership was originated in 1982 by Bill Brown’s father, and Shelley Floyd’s grandfather, Ken Brown.  Pictured with one of the student entries are (left to right), Paula Boulanger – Human Resources; Dawn Jones – NJE campus coordinator; Denise Overstreet – Human Resources; Caitlin Woodall – Sales/Customer Service; and Stacy Dawson – NJE librarian.  Following the judging, team members were treated to lunch in the cafeteria by the 1st Grade Students in celebration of “National School Lunch Week.”
