A scholarship has been established in memory of Paula Jones Williams of Jonesboro to provide assistance to a Jonesboro-Hodge graduate that plans to further their education in the college or vocational school setting.
A beloved educator in the Jonesboro-Hodge Schools for 34 years Williams always exhibited a kind and compassionate demeanor that made her students feel welcomed and loved. Her gentle, caring heart helped to establish a lifelong bond with the students she taught. She would be excited about this scholarship, knowing that it will help one of “her kids” to further their education and advance their future. The deadline for the application will be April 30th. Applicants will be contacted for in-person interviews at Jonesboro-Hodge High School after review. Donations for future recipients can be made to the Paula Jones Williams Scholarship Fund at Jonesboro State Bank.
