Two Fleming Island High golfers receive JAGA scholarships

Posted

JACKSONVILLE – Andrew Davis and Jenna Roach, both from Fleming Island High, were among 15 golfers to earn a scholarship from the Jacksonville Area Golf Association.

Davis will attend Florida State College at Jacksonville; Roach will attend Barton College. Both will get $1,000 a semester.

Scholarships are renewable each semester based on scholars meeting certain criteria, including a minimum grade-point average, for up to eight semesters.

Since the JAGA Scholarship Trust was formed in 1974, JAGA has awarded approximately $1.8 million to more than 375 deserving young students. The Trust is a 501 (c)(3) Not for Profit organization.

“The Scholarship Trust Committee is pleased to increase the number of students it will support in 2022-23 to a record 42, up from 35,” said Scholarship Trustee Ken Hicks of Deerwood Country Club. “This is the result of the great work JAGA directors have done over the course of the year in raising funds and identifying so many excellent scholar candidates at their respective clubs. The caliber of students we interviewed was very impressive. They, no doubt, will go on to be leaders in Jacksonville or wherever else their lives and careers take them.”
