Prince Jones Memorial Scholarship

  Prince Jones was a TAMS graduate in the Class of 1992 who later went on to Howard University

Tragically, in 2000, while in his fiancee's driveway, Prince was misidentified as a suspect by an undercover police officer and was shot and killed.  Prince was one of the most gregarious students in his class.  He had the ability to lift the spirits of the entire room.  Prince's integrity, vivacious spirit, and overwhelming positive disposition left a legacy in the hearts and minds of all who crossed his path.  From the Jones family, "Prince was the friend, brother, and son we all dream of having. He loved God, he loved his family, and he loved people. He was dedicated to the pursuit of truth and knowledge. His favorite aphorism was, “Knowledge is Power.” Like many of his peers, Prince was eager and excited about the opportunity to attend TAMS.  He valued education and believed knowledge was gained both in and outside of the classroom.  Providing scholarships for others to gain knowledge and hopefully find truth is the ideal testament of his legacy. Prince attended TAMS from 1990 to 1992." The Prince Jones Memorial Scholarship is designed to recognize the graduating senior who is that positive force in their class.  A student who is well-liked, amiable to all, and embodies the drive to make a positive difference in the world upon their graduation from TAMS.
