The Melodie Hope Jones Memorial Scholarship Fund is a scholarship established in memory of Melodie Hope Jones, a 2015 graduate of Milano High school, who lost her life in a tragic auto accident while attending Blinn College and pursuing her dream of becoming a nurse.
This educational scholarship was established to recognize and support a senior Milano High School student that through their caring and compassion for their peers exhibited the same determination and compassion for others as Melodie Hope Jones did in pursuing her educational dreams at both Milano High School and Blinn College.
The Melodie Hope Jones Memorial Scholarship Fund Inc., at the request of the Jimann and Jeff Jones Family, is offering a scholarship of $2500 to a 2020 graduating senior of Milano High School.
The 2019 Sunflower Fun Run/Walk raising money for the Melodie Hope Jones Memorial Scholarship was great fun and will allow us to continue to give away a scholarship to a deserving individual in the spring.
