ELLISVILLE – Laurel Christian High School senior, Arianna Molloy received a full tuition scholarship for one semester at Jones County Junior College after winning the annual business competition.  This was the first time a Laurel Christian High School student participated in the competition.

“Thank you!  This will definitely help with expenses.  I was going to major in business but now I’m going into nursing.”

Jared Blackledge, a senior at Northeast Jones won a half tuition scholarship for one semester as the second place winner.  Blackledge said his teacher nominated him for the opportunity to compete at JCJC.  “I am considering economics as a major.  I felt pretty comfortable with the material on the test.”

The two Laurel residents outscored about 50 students taking an objective business test covering general business, computer concepts, and current events to earn a JCJC scholarship.  Phi Beta Lambda honor society sponsor, and JCJC business instructor, David Ray also gave two other students an opportunity to be winners.  Two JCJC PBL $25 memberships were awarded to Laurel Christian High School senior, Kate Williams and Enterprise High School senior, Zach Moulds in a random drawing.  They both plan on attending Jones and utilizing the paid membership dues to take advantage of the networking and learning opportunities.

Sponsors of the business competition include Coca-Cola, Central Sunbelt Federal Credit Union, Hol-Mac Corporation and Leaf River Cellulose.  For more information, call Dusty Holifield at 601.477.5435 or email dusty.holifield@jcjc.edu.
