JHS Class of 1970 elevate cash for scholarship

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) – The 1970 Jonesboro High School class remembered more than just seeing them again on Saturday night.

The reunion took place at The Gardens at Harmony, and classmates and family members gathered for dinner and auction after the event was postponed for a year due to COVID concerns.

The auction, run by class members, was used to raise funds for a Vo-Tech scholarship.

Organizer Brenda Posey Knight said they chose a Vo-Tech Scholarship to provide more financial opportunities for students entering careers.

“Many times Vo-Tech kids are overlooked because they don’t have as many opportunities for scholarships, so we try to raise funds to send others to advance their education in the career of their choice,” Knight said.

Starting Saturday night, the class raised $ 2,500 for the scholarship.

To donate for the scholarship, you can send cash or a check to:
