Barberton Band Boosters’ Henda Jones Memorial Scholarship Fund

Barberton Band Boosters’ Henda Jones Memorial Scholarship Fund

Ray E. Leach

Mrs. Henda Jones, a dedicated Band Booster for 19 years, thrived and lived for the senior citizens of Barberton and the band members of Barberton High School. She was an exceptional servant and leader for both groups. She enjoyed her work as the Senior Center Director and Band Booster President for many years. Her dream for a bingo game as a fine support mechanism for the band was realized in 1992. She was present when the Band Boosters purchased their first concession trailer, and continued to be very active in the community in numerous ways. She was always thinking of ideas to support the band. The Band Boosters honor her memory with this scholarship.
