Harvey C. Jackson Jr., Memorial Scholarships - 31st year - 2@ $3,000

This fund originated in 196 in memory of Harvey C. Jackson, Jr.. visiting teacher and counselor in Highland Park Schools from 1941 until his death in 1967.

The Highland Park Federation of Teachers was a major force in the establishment of this fund, in cooperation with the Mothers Club of Highland Park and the Board of Education. After a decade of inactivity, the fund was reactivated in 1982 by an Organizing Committee formed by the late Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Thomas Lloyd. A February fund drive, during Black History Month, has been conducted annually in the community's public schools. Harvey C. Jackson. Jr.. Memorial Scholarships are one-time grants to two students each year at $3,000 per student, applicable to tuition, room and board, books, and other fees payable to an accredited college or university. The awards, increased in 1993 from the previous $2,500 amount, are for two graduating Highland Park Community High School seniors qualifying by specific criteria including a minimum 3.0 (B) grade-point average and selected by a school-community committee.
