Munashe Jones, a graduating senior at Jones County High School, has been selected the Young Jazz Musician Scholarship winner for 2020 by the Jazz Association of Macon. With a 3.9 grade point average, Miss Jones has been accepted to Louisiana State University, where she will study music.
Jones County Director of Bands Robert Groves said, “Munashe Jones is one of those students you wish you could clone a million times over, not only because of her talent, but because of her leadership and dedication.”
Jones County Director of Choral Activities Mystee Wilcox endorses her as a performer and musician. “In three years with the Jones County Choir, Miss Jones is considerate, respectful and expresses herself with thoughtful intelligence,” she said.
Miss Jones said she plans to become a music educator and teach band and choir at the middle school level.
