The Leadership of Gerrell B Jones
The Gerrell B Memorial Scholarship was established in honor of a young man who died before his time. Gerrell was always dedicated to bettering the lives of those around him. Whether it was helping to breakdown the negative stereotyping of Black male teens or using his artistic skills to design the winning logo for the local youth recreation center, he often found ways to contribute to the community of Austin, Texas. This leadership scholarship was created to give students, like Gerrell, hope and a better chance to succeed.
