Empowering Outstanding Youth through College Scholarships
After graduating from Hampton Bays High School in 1982, Art Jones attended Hamilton College and ultimately ended up working at Carr Futures in the World Trade Center. He was working that fateful day in September, 2001 and tragically lost his life. Soon after, the AJJ Scholarship Fund was created to help keep his memory alive and to empower young men and women leading their lives in his likeness. Since its inception in 2001, the AJJ Scholarship Fund has awarded over $295,000 in scholarships and worthy community initiatives.
