Middle school student creates app for Henrico schools


Seventh-grade Pocahontas Middle School student Jordan Washok has created five smartphone apps, and his latest – “Hawk Mobile” – has been purchased by Henrico County Public Schools for possible use at schools across the county.

Hawk Mobile started as a Pocahontas-specific creation for access on Apple devices to school news, information and the student grade portal. It’s now available for Android devices, too, and may expand to other schools during the 2015-16 school year.

The process started when Pocahontas principal Kim Sigler learned about Ball X-scape, an iOS game the student launched in February 2014. She suggested that he create an app for the school’s Relay for Life drive against cancer. That turned into an all-encompassing free app for the school.
