It’s the eleventh day of my 12 Days of Charitable Giving. Readers have suggested deserving charities over the past few weeks and I’ll be posting one a day for – well, 12 days (I’m clever that way). Today’s charity is The Jahri Evans Foundation.
The purpose of the Jahri Evans Foudation is to help student athletes further their education and athletic career by improving and developing their athletic capabilities. Funds raised at foundation events are applied to student athletes who meet the scholarship criteria and are entering their 1st year of college.
Recipients must be graduating high school in good academic standing with a grade point average of at least a 3.0. THIS SCHOLARSHIP IS SOLELY FOR STUDENT ATHLETES. The specific criteria used to select recipients will be an analysis of their academic performance during their junior and senior years in high school along with their financial need.
