Jones Scholarship offered to seniors

Graduating seniors enrolled in Prince Edward County High School are invited to apply for the fourth annual Elias Harold Jones Memorial Scholarship for Leadership and Character.

Elias was a senior at PECHS when he died suddenly in 2012. To honor his memory, family and friends funded a scholarship for a PECHS student who will continue his or her education in either a two or four year college or university.

The scholarship application packet is available in the guidance office of PECHS. The award amount has been raised to $1,500 this year. Students who have been active in the community and in school are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is April 21.
