Jacksboro Exes award scholarships
At the 2016 Jacksboro High School graduation ceremonies, the Jacksboro High School Ex-Student’s Association presented $88,000 in college scholarships to 10 JHS graduates.
Scholarship committee chairman Jerry Craft told the crowd that in the May 1990 ceremonies he presented two $1,000 scholarships.
“Since that time, including tonight, we have provided $879,000 in college scholarships,” Craft said. “This, of course, is due to the generosity of our ex-students, and our two wonderful foundations, the Miles Foundation of Fort Worth and theSwan Family Foundation of Jacksboro.”
Four-year college scholarships in the amount of $10,000 apiece were awarded to Jacob Wykes, T.C.U., Diana Brock, Texas Tech; Caleb Martin, Lamar University; Karson Hood, Texas Tech; Paige West, Texas A&M; all awarded by the Miles Foundation and Ashley Littleton, Texas State University, given by the Jacksboro High School Ex-Student’s Association.
Also, Yuridia Delgado, Texas State University, and Bayley Richardson, Baylor, awarded by the Swan Family Foundation.
Two-year associate degrees of $4,000 apiece were awarded to William Justus, Texas State Technical College, gifted by Ex-students Martha Salmon and John Cater Hackley, and also to Miss Katelin Snow, who will attend Weatherford College. Her scholarship was gifted by Ex-students Ed Rumage, Steve and Mary Epps, Bob Murray and David Wheelis.
