Congratulations to the entire Bristol Bay Borough School District Class of 2023 on your accomplishments!
The 2023 Stephen Jones Memorial Scholarship Winners will be announced at the BBBSD Graduation.
Stephen Jones was a valued member of our community who was
generous in volunteering his time in many ways over many years. In addition to
serving as a director on the Bristol Bay Borough Chamber of Commerce, he also
served as a director on the Bristol Bay Telephone Cooperative Board of
Directors, the NEA Board of Directors and state liaison for the Local Emergency
Planning Committee. He served many years as an active volunteer for the Bristol
Bay Borough Fire Department, eventually becoming the volunteer Fire Chief for
Stephen Jones was also a devoted family man and commercial
fisherman. He learned his love of fishing from his uncles, during his youth in Hawaii.
His love of fishing is what initially drew him to relocate to Bristol Bay with
his wife and four children in 1992. He eventually bought a set net permit for
his sons and daughters, and later developed a family owned and operated fish
processing operation. Stephen’s life was centered around the wellbeing of his
family and community.
It is our wish to award this scholarship to graduating
students who show interest and aptitude in the activities that Stephen valued
and who exhibits commitment to the community that Stephen loved to serve.
