Nickelodeon Star Comes To East Texas

The Nickelodeon star Lil' JJ talked with students at Stewart Middle school in Tyler Thursday as part of the Hazel Harvey Peace Scholarship Fun Education Awareness Tour. It's all in an effort to motivate students to stay in school, while also raising money to help send students to college. Being a part of the nickelodeon show "Just Jordan, Lil' JJ says students can easily connect with him.

"With me being young, I can talk to kids and they can relate to me a whole lot versus somebody grown just giving them a long speech that they don't want to hear,' he says.

Lil JJ also spoke to students at Robert E. Lee High School Thursday morning.
