New Scholarship Available To Jones Elementary Alums

Applications Due April 1


Jones Elementary School is offering a one-time, $1,000 college scholarship to a former Fox. Any graduating senior who completed fifth grade at Jones Elementary, has a 3.0 or higher GPA and plans to attend a two- or four-year secondary program is eligible for the scholarship.

Applicants are required to provide identification, proof of their time at Jones, a sealed high school transcript, two letters of recommendation and a 500- to 1,000-word essay.

Students are taught the “Jones Fox Way” with a focus on respect, responsibility and relationships during their time at the school. Application essays should explain how the student continued to exemplify those traits in their time in middle and high school.

The scholarship is the result of unspent funds discovered in the PTA budget, and the current executive committee hopes this initiative is here to stay, said Becci Horrell, PTA vice president.

“We thought this would be a good legacy for us to start for Jones for years to come,” Horrell said. “I think that what we try to instill in the kids at Jones with the Fox Way and the three R’s is something people should live life by in general, and I think that those three aspects of life really help Severna Park be a great community.”

Applications are due by April 1. For more information, visit
