JTHS BAA Announces Second Scholarship

We are thrilled to announce that our JTHS Band Alumni Association added a second scholarship award in memory and in honor of deceased JT band alumnus, Mr. Norman A. MacDonald (JTHS Class of 1961). The JTHS BAA "Norman MacDonald Memorial Scholarship Award" was made possible by a very generous donation. We have worked closely with Mr. MacDonald's family to expedite this award so it could be presented to one JT senior band student from both JT Central and JT West during this (2013-14) school year.The award recipients are: 1) Alex Paolone - JT West, 2) Salvador Rodriguez - JT Central. Hence, our BAA organization will award a total of four scholarships this year! All of this year's recipients will be recognized at the JT Central Concert on 5/11/14 and the JT West Concert on 5/12/14.
