Our Selection Process
The Selection Committee is responsible for the scholarship awarding process. Immediate family members of The Selection Committee, The Board of Directors, or any person making contributions to The Charles Hoyt Jones Scholarship Foundation are not eligible for our scholarship.
This foundation has been a process in the making for quite some time. It is through the hard work, time, and efforts of many people which have made this organization possible. Chances are if you are reading this, then you are a friend, family member, fellow alumni, or professional colleague of mine. It is to those people that I would like to explain the origins of our foundation.
I know that I have been blessed in my successes as well as the opportunities I have been afforded. I also know that there are many things I might not have accomplished if not for the help and support of friends and family along the way. With this in mind, it was my goal to find a way to give back to others who might be pursuing those same paths.
Secondly, Charles Hoyt Jones was a great man. As a coach, church member, and leader in the community, I witnessed him touch so many lives in a positive way. It has been a long-time dream of mine to find a way that would allow him to continue to do so. Establishing this scholarship has allowed us to accomplish both of these goals. I just want to thank everyone who has worked to create this foundation. I would also like to thank the potential applicants and potential contributors for your interest.
With sincere gratitude,
Dr. BJ Jones
