Submitted photo Hard work has paid off for Newton's Makayla Jackson after recently signing her letter of intent to run track for Clafin University in Orangeburg, S.C. Jackson led the Lady Rams to the Region 2-AAAAAA championship last season winning the 100- and 300-hurdles. She also holds the school record for the hurdle. "Makayla is one of our brighest stars. She is a hardworking young lady that has been chipping away at success over the last four years. She will leave a lasting impression on the Newton High School track program for many years to come," Newton track coach Cortez Allen said.
