Learn About Gerrell B Jones Memorial Scholarship
Every year, the Gerrell B Jones Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a single high school graduate for outstanding leadership abilities and community outreach. Gerrell was a young man who epitomized love for others by helping his neighborhood in any way he could. He made a difference in the lives of several students in the Austin, Texas, area, and we are here to carry on his legacy.
Students are invited to apply through the National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Incorporated, Southwest Region, Delta Beta Chapter of Austin, Texas. This national sorority is an organization of teachers and educators who are dedicated to helping high school students prepare for college. Gerrell was a member of the male youth group, Kudos, for a number of years, so we have worked with Delta Beta Chapter to create this memorial scholarship. As part of the youth group, sponsors teach students in grades 9 thru 12 leadership skills, study methods, and social growth proving leaders always emerge during times of adversity.
Our mission is to spread the life story of an inspirational young man who knew and loved God, and who lived to share Jesus, being original in what he did and real with everyone he contacted.
