2. John Jenne did not just live in the present. He was often planning to make thisa better world. Discuss how you plan to make the world a better place.
(Each essay should be 1 – 2 pages, 12-point font and single spaced.)

The deadline to apply for the John Jenne Memorial Scholarship is April 15, 2019.

Graduating East Mountain High School students may apply for the $1000.00 John Jenne Memorial Scholarship for Community Service.

The applicant for this scholarship must present:

a cumulative 3.0 grade-point-average,
evidence of a passion for community service,
and evidence of a desire to develop this passion later in life.

Each of the scholarship recipients shall be a graduate or graduating senior of EMHS, accepted to either a 4-year accredited college or university. The beneficiary of the Jenne Scholarship may use the scholarship in support of his/her educational expenses. The scholarship does not have to be paid back; however, we would encourage the recipients to donate to the scholarship fund when they have graduated or have begun their career, so that other students can benefit and so that the fund remains in existence as long as possible.

The selection committee will include an active member East Mountain Great Decisions Committee and the EMHS Principal or designee. This scholarship will be offered as long as funds are available.

A resident of Sandia Park, NM, John Jenne was a physician and a chemist; a person who cared deeply for the welfare of people; a person greatly concerned with issues of justice both locally and globally; and one who acted on his beliefs in a non-intrusive manner.
