The Scholarship has launched!
I met with a representative of the Alameda Unified School District with regards to The Miss Nicole Jones Memorial Scholarship that we are inaugurating this year. We hope to give out one scholarship in May to a deserving senior at Alameda High School that has aspirations of achieving a degree in Education. We will also be able to review the final applications and have some input on who the scholarship will be going to. I'm very excited to follow this process and be there when they award the winner.
With that said, we are now appealing to you for donations to fund the scholarship. The funds will be held in a separate account set up for this scholarship at the school district until we decide on a candidate. All donations will be tax deductible and the district will send out letters to that fact to all donations made by check. If this is something you would be interested in helping Nicole's family with, please send any donations, made payable to Alameda Unified School District with a note designating it for The Miss Nicole Jones Memorial Scholarship. If the name and address on the check is different from the donor, please indicate that on a note to AUSD, as they will send the tax deductible letter and Thank You letter to the name and address printed on the check if it is not indicated otherwise. Please send all donations to:
Alameda Unified School District
Attn: Dani Krueger
2060 Challenger Drive
Alameda, CA 94501
We have also set up a GoFundMe page if that is an easier way for donating. The link is below. Please visit the site and see if this is a cause you would like to help us promote.
As always, thank you for your love and support of Nicole through the last few months of her life.
Theresa (and of course Matt and Anna)
