Jackson, Tenn (Nov. 17, 2017) – The Mary Jo Boehms Endowed Scholarship Fund has been established in memory of the longtime professor of Jackson State Community College. The endowed scholarship was established by the family through the Jackson State Community College Foundation.
Mary Jo contributed her time, talent, compassion, knowledge and love to everything she did at JSCC where she was a professor of business for over 35 years. The family felt it was only fitting that the scholarship continues her legacy by assisting students with college expenses. The scholarship can cover the cost of books and/or other fees not related to tuition and is structured so that it can award up to four (4) full-time students each semester in any program or major.
“We are so appreciative of the Boehms family for supporting our students with this scholarship,” stated Dr. Allana Hamilton, JSCC president. “Mary Jo gave selflessly to Jackson State and our students, always going above and beyond. The Mary Jo Boehms Endowed Scholarship will continue the great work and compassion that Mary Jo showed all of us.”
Contributions to the fund in honor and memory of Mary Jo Boehms will be accepted by the JSCC FOUNDATION. Checks may be mailed or delivered to: JSCC FOUNDATION, 2046 N. Parkway, Jackson, TN 38301. Please designate that your donation is for the Mary Jo Boehms Endowed Scholarship. For questions regarding the fund, call 731-425-8825.
