By January 15th of your senior year, your high school guidance counselor must provide certification of these activities to the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. If all of the required activities have been completed, you will receive the documents necessary to claim a one-year scholarship of $2,000. Funds may be used for tuition, fees and books at any academically accredited two-year, four-year or vocational/technical nonprofit institution in the United States.

JHS SENIORS: Mattress Nerd has been paying attention to the many voices of students across the globe who have recently been calling for a change in our living habits and the way we consume and recycle. We are working in an industry where new technology is being developed all of the time to ensure that mattresses will be longer-lasting and produced with more environmental materials, and we want to ensure that our readership understands the options available to them to be mindful with their mattress disposal. Despite the push in awareness regarding needed changes in how we dispose of our waste, we don’t believe there is enough information out there on the different ways of reusing and recycling our products when they are no longer of value to us. We’d love to hear from more students with a dedication to sustainability and conscientious buying so we can build on our own knowledge and be a contributor to offering an insight on how people can live more environmentally friendly. The best essay will be awarded with a $1000 scholarship for their contribution to this important cause. For More information and to apply go to https://www.mattressnerd.com/scholarship/

JHS SENIORS THAT ARE GOING TO MAJOR IN A SCIENCE RELATED FIELD: We are excited to announce the Jimmie L Dean Scholarship Foundation is now taking applications for the 2020-2021 academic year through April 15, 2020 at our website www.jimmiedeanfoundation.org Every year since 2010, we have provided individual scholarships of up to $10,000 per year to outstanding Oklahoma students who attend Oklahoma colleges and Universities. Since our first awards in the 2010-2011 School year we have provided actual funds of almost $1 million. Our mission is to provide financial assistance to Oklahoma students who will attend Oklahoma colleges and universities that we feel will remain in out great state after graduation and contribute to the Oklahoma economy for many years. This award does not consider income levels, hardship conditions, or a specific entrance test score (although we do require a minimum 25 ACT score for 4 year colleges and Universities and 17 for OSUIT students). We do take into consideration the test score when trying to project a student's success in their chosen major area of study. We are simply looking for true Oklahomans who may find themselves in the position of not having sufficient funds to attend college but have income levels that preclude them from receiving enough financial assistance to cover their costs of attendance. Our awards are structured in a manner to fill in the gap between the scholarships and awards already earned by a student and the cost of tuition and academic fees plus room and board charges, with the goal to eliminate or reduce the need for student debt. The qualities we are looking for are students who are responsible citizens who have worked hard and have achieved good academic standing. We view a student's work history, their expected major, their academic achievement and recommendations from those they have been associated with as a body of work to eventually make our decision as to who will receive an award. Our application form provides an avenue for a short student essay to allow them to introduce themselves to our foundation. We rely upon this to help select our finalists each year. We encourage you to communicate to prospective students they take this opportunity very seriously. You would be surprised as to how many essays simply state the students need for money or tell us about the other members of their family but really nothing about themselves. In all candor we already know they need money or they would not be applying and telling us about family members is only relevant if it provides insight into the student. We want to know about the student, what jobs they have held, what would make them a good investment for us, and how do they exemplify the qualities of the Foundation. Our awards are primarily awarded to students who will be pursuing degrees that are science related rather than arts majors. Therefore, some of the majors we will not consider are music, performing arts, English, literature, Psychology, Sociology, Journalism, Business, Pre-law, Political Science, Music, Education or similar majors. In short, we are looking for students who are wanting to make or build things or serve in a health science field.

JHS AMERICAN INDIAN SENIORS INTERESTED IN NURSING: American Indian Nurse Scholarship Program The American Indian Nurse Scholarship Award Program (AINS) was started by the NSCDA in 1928 to give students of American Indian descent the opportunity to pursue careers in nursing. The students are expected to return to work among their people to help improve health care. Some students work on reservations, and others find employment in hospitals in areas largely populated by American Indians. Intended originally to benefit females only, the program has expanded to include males and the career goals now include not only nursing careers, but jobs in health care and health education, as well. The current goal is to grant a $1,500 scholarship each semester, as long as the student remains in academic good standing. The scholarship money is restricted to tuition and specific academic expenses. To meet the financial demands of their education, many students seek additional government grants and subsidies and maintain part-time jobs For more information and to get application go to https://nscda.org/student-resources/scholarship-opportunities/

JHS SENIORS INTERESTED IN OU's NROTC Program: The Navy ROTC program is a great opportunity for your students to earn a scholarship. The program is for leaders who desire to serve as an officer in the United States Navy or Marine Corps and lead America’s finest in the Naval Services. Additionally, the NROTC program at OU offers an opportunity to compete for a $3,000 freshman scholarship that is awarded in the fall semester based on academics, physical fitness, and performance in the unit. For fall 2020, there will be up to 11 of these scholarships available. How your students can join OU NROTC: 1 – Apply for the national scholarship their senior year of high school. The deadline for this is December 31 of their senior year. Typically, students complete the application process during the summer between the junior and senior year in high school or very early in the senior year. 2 – The College Program, which is essentially the NROTC equivalent of being a walk-on football player on a college football team. The NROTC unit does not pay for any of the costs associated with their schooling, and at the end of their freshman and sophomore years in college, they have an opportunity to earn a three-year or two-year scholarship, respectively. If students participate in this program, they need to be prepared to pay for the full cost of college for the first two years at the university. The College Program application process runs from January 1–May 1 each year for the upcoming fall semester. Participation in the NROTC program also grants in-state tuition to the University of Oklahoma for out-of-state residents. The minimum requirement for scholarship applications are as follows: Navy: ACT/SAT Math – 21/540 ACT/SAT English (ACT) or Verbal (SAT) – 22/550 Combined Score of Math and English (ACT) Verbal (SAT): 47/1200 Marine: ACT – 22 Combined SAT – 1000 Combined College Program applications below these minimums will be considered on a case-by-case basis. For more information, visit the https://www.nrotc.navy.mil/ which contains a vast amount of information about the NROTC program nationwide. Additionally, this is where students will submit their application for the NROTC scholarship.

Today's Red Ribbon Week Facts are about Prescription Drugs: • Enough painkillers were prescribed in 2010 to medicate each American adult every four hours for one month. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] • Every day in the US, 2,500 youth (ages 12 to 17) abuse a prescription pain reliever for the first time. Drugfreeworld.org • Deaths from prescription painkillers have reached epidemic levels in the past decade. CDC • Teens who abuse prescription drugs are 2x as likely to use alcohol, 5x more likely to use marijuana, and 12-20x more likely to use illegal street drugs. National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse • Almost 50% of teens believe that prescription drugs are much safer than illegal street drugs – they’re not. Drugfreeworld.org • After marijuana and alcohol, prescription drugs are the most commonly abused substances by Americans age 14 and older. National Institute on Drug Abuse • Most teens get these prescribed medicines from friends or relatives. Rarely do teens abuse medicine prescribed in their own name. The Stark County Educational Service Center • In 2013, 15% of high school seniors admitted to abusing a prescription drug during the year prior. Village Behavioral Health • Among many others, some long-term effects of prescription drugs are self-harming behaviors, organ damage and failure (especially to kidneys), and death.

Today's Red Ribbon Week facts relate to alcohol: • Drinking too much can weaken your immune system, making your body a much easier target for disease. Drinking a lot on a single occasion slows your body’s ability to ward off infections – even up to 24 hours after. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism • Teen drivers are 3 times more likely than more experienced drivers to be in a fatal crash. Drinking any alcohol greatly increases this risk for teens. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention • People who have their first drink at age 14 or younger are six times more likely to develop alcohol problems than those who don’t try alcohol until the legal drinking age. Helpguide.org • For adolescents ages 15 to 20, alcohol is implicated in more than a third of driver fatalities resulting from automobile accidents and about two-fifths of drowning cases. Helpguide.org • 4,358 people under age 21 die each year from alcohol-related car crashes, homicides, suicides, alcohol poisoning, and other injuries such as falls, burns, and drowning. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism • The age limit of 21 years old for alcohol is based on research which shows that young people react differently to alcohol. Teens get drunk twice as fast as adults, but have more trouble knowing when to stop, binge drinking more often than adults. Mothers Against Drunk Driving-Why 21 • Combining drugs raises the risks of brain damage, heart attack, stroke and overdose exponentially. An average of 2.7 drugs is involved in every fatal overdose. shatterproof.org

JHS Jones Against Drugs is sharing facts to our student body daily during Red Ribbon Week. These facts are from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Today's facts relate to Marijuana> • Marijuana is 300% more potent now than 20 years ago. It causes significant changes to blood flow in the brain, leading to diminished cognition and judgment. shatterproof.org • About 9 percent of those who use marijuana will become addicted. This rate increases to 17 percent of those who start in their teens, and goes up to 25 to 50 percent among daily users. National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) • Regular use of marijuana has been linked to depression, anxiety, and a loss of drive or motivation, which means a loss of interest even in previously enjoyable activities. Its effects can be unpredictable, especially when mixed with other drugs. NIDA • After alcohol, marijuana is the drug most often linked to car accidents, including those involving deaths. Marijuana affects skills required for safe driving—alertness, concentration, coordination, and reaction time. Marijuana makes it hard to judge distances and react to signals and sounds on the road. NIDA • The human brain continues to develop into the early 20s. Exposure to addictive substances, including marijuana, may cause changes to the developing brain that make other drugs more appealing. This may be why some people who use marijuana go on to try other drugs. NIDA • Between January and May 2015, Poison Control Centers reported 3,572 calls related to synthetic marijuana use, or Spice, an increase from the 1,085 calls during the same period last year. Spice abusers who have been taken to Emergency Rooms report symptoms including rapid heart rate, increased blood pressure, reduced blood supply to the heart, vomiting, agitation, confusion and hallucinations.

JHS Students turning 18 this year: Pre-registration Open for Young Voters at 17.5 Starting Nov 1 Oklahoma citizens will be able to pre-register to vote when they turn 17.5 years old thanks to a new law going into effect on November 1. Sen. Jason Smalley, R-Stroud, and Rep. Zack Taylor, R-Seminole, authored Senate Bill 496 this past session to make it easier for young voters to remember to get registered to vote before they turn 18. “Voting is one of our greatest freedoms, and that first time to vote is such a memorable experience. Unfortunately, many forget that they have to register 60 days before the election and end up not being able to vote until the following year,” Smalley said. “Hopefully, by using age rather than a specific time period, it’ll be easier for people to remember to get registered to vote and we’ll see more of Oklahoma’s youth getting involved in the voting process.” Currently, a 17-year-old can pre-register to vote 60 days before an election if their 18th birthday is on or before election day. The new law will allow citizens to pre-register when they turn 17.5 regardless of when the election occurs as long as they will turn 18 on or before election day.

Red Ribbon Week is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention awareness campaign. Today, millions of people celebrate. Red Ribbon Week started after the death of Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena, who in 1985 was brutally murdered by drug traffickers he was investigating in Mexico. After his death, people wanted to honor his sacrifice. Local celebrations began in California – where Camarena grew up – in 1985, and in 1988 the National Family Partnership started the first National Red Ribbon Week. As a tribute to Camarena during the initial local celebrations, high school friend Henry Lozano and Congressman Duncan Hunter, created “Camarena Clubs” and the wearing of a red ribbon to show their oppositions to drugs.

JHS Students from low-income families looking for major college opportunities. Check out Questbridge. QuestBridge is a powerful platform that connects the nation's brightest students from low-income backgrounds with leading institutions of higher education and further opportunities. We are an aggregator of excellence. By facilitating these exchanges, QuestBridge aims to increase the percentage of talented low-income students attending the nation's best universities and the ranks of national leadership itself. Our Vision QuestBridge envisions a world where America's leadership encompasses thoughtful and broad-minded decision-makers drawn from every economic segment of society. QuestBridge will revolutionize the way leading colleges and universities recruit talented low-income students, and the way these students approach their educations and futures. Our Mission QuestBridge designs and builds programs for talented low-income students to access and navigate exceptional educational and life opportunities. QuestBridge recruits, develops, and supports motivated low-income students – beginning in high school through college to their early career – to be successful at America's best colleges, graduate schools, and companies. What we know Abundant low-income talent exists. Annually, approximately 30,000 talented low-income students nationally are academically qualified to attend the nation’s best colleges, but the majority of them don’t even apply to one selective college. Already in the system, there is abundant raw talent and tens of thousands of academically prepared talented low-income students in America to match top low-income students with every full-need scholarship that top American colleges provide. There need be no academic gap if we can bring our best low-income students into the system. What we believe Intelligence, talent, motivation, nobility, and grit are distributed across the entire economic spectrum of America's youth. Many elite colleges and universities, Fortune 500 corporations, and top graduate schools sincerely strive to embrace the country's most talented, determined, and self-motivated students. But they often lack the reach to attract appropriate candidates from low-income populations. America has an undiscovered population of talented low-income youth. Some of our brightest young minds are well-suited to opportunities, but unconnected for simple lack of information, mentorship, and other surmountable barriers. https://www.questbridge.org/high-school-students

The possibility of severe weather during school hours will undoubtedly create some anxiety. Please remember that every student at Jones is within a few minutes of a safe room while at school. However, if you feel your family will be safer at home, we will support your decision. If you decide to keep your child at home, please call the main office to report the absence, so it can be excused. Tomorrow’s absences will not count against perfect attendance or absences limitations. Thank you, Dr. Carl Johnson

Congratulations to JHS Junior, Taylor Shaw. Taylor has been selected as a Miss Oklahoma Teen Finalist. It’s A Great Day To Be A Longhorn! She is currently preparing for her pageant and is looking for sponsors. Below is some information from Taylor about her selection. The Miss Oklahoma Teen Pageant is organized by National American Miss. They send letters to chosen participants to invite them to an open call interview, which is where they will determine whether or not you are in the pageant. They select their participants by reviewing Honor Society referrals and/or you had participated in a past pageant. National American Miss Pageants are based on teaching girls to have positive self-images by enhancing their beauty within. The pageant isn’t focused solely on the girls outer beauty but on helping girls grow and expand their ideas on who they truly are. When I first received the open call letter, I was very excited. The pageant would not only open many doors for me in the future, but would also allow me to create many friends and memories along my journey. I went to the open call interview and was then asked three questions about myself and what I planned on doing in the future after I graduate high school. The following day I got an email stating that I had been chosen to be a Miss Oklahoma Teen Finalist. After finding out I was in the pageant, I immediately called close family to tell them the exciting news. In the small amount time of finding out that I was a State Finalist, I have gained much support from family and friends. In the email, it provided a step by step guide of what was next to come. I am currently searching for potential sponsors, to help support me as I get ready for the pageant. The sponsors would help support me with sponsorship fees, production number outfits, audience tickets for the pageant, and so much more. I then attend a pageant prep training session, which will prepare me for the pageant,which is on July 5th through 7th in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Miss Oklahoma Teen Pageant is an opportunity of a lifetime and I am so thankful to be a part of it. In addition to the crowning of the next Miss Oklahoma Teen, scholarships, cash prizes, awards, and trophies are given to all participants. Girls who participate in the pageant will also gain self-confidence, communication skills, and a valuable experience as they interview and appear on stage in front of others.

Jane Austin Society of North America Essay Contest JASNA conducts an annual student Essay Contest to foster the study and appreciation of Jane Austen's work. The contest is open to high school, college/university and graduate students who appreciate the writings of Jane Austin. Participants must write an essay on the following topic: 2019 Contest Topic Abbey Gatehouse Reading Abbey Gatehouse, where Jane and Cassandra Austen attended school from 1785-1786 In honor of the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's novel Northanger Abbey, we welcome essays on following topic: Northanger Abbey can be described as a book about books. There is, of course, the well-known "defense of the novel,” but characters also discuss their reading habits, name specific novels, and even consider history books. In her works, Austen often makes use of fiction, poetry or plays, either explicitly or indirectly. Explore how she does this in Northanger Abbey. High school students may bring in another Austen novel but are not required to do so; undergraduate and graduate students must bring in one or more additional novels. Award Amount: 3 awards, $250 – $1,000 Deadline: June 3, 2019 http://www.jasna.org/programs/essay-contest?

Black History Month Did You Know… The United States Armed Forces were segregated from the End of Slavery until Executive Order 9981 was issued on July 26, 1948, by President Harry S. Truman. It abolished discrimination "on the basis of race, color, religion or national origin" in the United States Armed Forces. The executive order eventually led to the end of segregation in the services. Prior to desegregation our United States Military had many all-black units that served this country with distinction. In this spotlight we are going to focus on two highly decorated groups. The 9th & 10th Calvary “Buffalo Soldiers” and the 332nd Air Squadron or Tuskegee Airmen. These troops fought many battles to protect rights that they themselves did not get to fully enjoy. There has been much made of where the term”Buffalo Soldier” originated but it has become the term used for the US Army units that trace their lineage back to the All-Black 9th and 10th Calvary units, whose service earned them an honored place in History. The Buffalo Soldiers spent time in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas. They pursed Victorio and Nana and other Apache warriors during Victorio’s War. They also fought in the Ghost Dance War and the Wounded Creek Massacre. They were also used to remove SOONERS from native lands in the 1880’s and 1890’s. A total of 23 Buffalo Solidiers received Congressional Medals of Honor during the Indian Wars. These All black Calvary Units continued to serve the US Military through conflicts around the World until the Horse Calvary was disbanded in 1951. The Tuskegee Airmen is the popular name of agroup of African American military pilots who fought in World War II. They were the first African American military aviators in the United States Armed forces. The Tuskegee Airmen’s first Combat Assignment was in North Africa where it received a Distinguished Unit Citation. They were then assigned to mainland Italy. In Italy they escorted Heavy Bombers on Bombing Raids into Hungary, Austria, Czechloslavakia, Poland and Germany. The quickly won the admiration of the Bomber pilots who referred to them as Red Tails because of their distinctive plane markings The Tuskegee Airmen are credited with the following accomplishments and awards: • 1578 Combat Missions • 179 Bomber Escort missions , losing bombers only on 7 missions • 112 enemy aircraft destroyed in the air • 950 rail cars, trucks and other motor vehicles destroyed • One destroyer put out of action • 40 other boats and barges destroyed • Received the Distinguished Unit Citation on 3 separate occasions • One Silver Star • 96 Distinguished Flying Crosses • 14 Bronze stars • 744 Air Medals • And 8 purple hearts

Black History Month Did You Know… Being handpicked to be one of three black students to integrate West Virginia’s graduate schools is something that many would consider one of their life’s most notable moments, but it is just one of several breakthroughs that have marked Katherine Johnson’s Life. **Her intense curiosity and brilliance with numbers allowed her to move ahead several grades in school ** She was attending high school at age of 13 at West Viriginia state College ** Graduated from West Virginia State College in 1937 and took a job teaching at a black public school in Virginia ** West Virginia State University president John Davis selected her and two male students as the first black students to attend West Virginia University’s graduate school in 1939. **1953 She took position at the all-black West Area Computing section at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics(NACA) Langley Laboratory. She was assigned to a project in the Maneuver Loads Branch of the Flight Research Division. She spent 4 years analyzing data from flight tests and worked on t the investigation of a plane crash caused by wake turbulence ** 1957 Launch of the Soviet Sputnik Satellite changed History and Katherine Johnson’s Life ** The NACA groups (becomes NASA) she worked with began their foray in space travel and Katherine went with them. She did trajectory analysis for Alan Shepard’s May 1961 Freedom 7 mission. This was America’s first human spaceflight. ** In 1960 she coauthored a research report. It was the first time a woman in the Flight Research division had received credit as an author. **in 1962 as NASA prepared for the orbital mission of John Glenn, Katherine Johnson was called upon to do the work she would become most known for. **As part of the preflight checklist, Glenn asked the engineers to have Katherine Johnson run the same numbers and equations that had been programmed into the computer, but by hand. If she says they are good,” Katherine remembers the astronaut saying,”then I am ready to go.” Glenn’s flight was a success. Katherine Johnson Retired from NASA in 1986

Black History Month Did You Know… The Greenwood District of Tulsa is a historic Freedom Colony. As one of the most prominent concentrations of African American businesses in the United States during the early 20th Century, it was popularly known as “America’s Black Wall Street”. This area contained numerous expensive houses belonging to Doctor’s, lawyers and business owners. The buildings on Greenwood Avenue housed the offices of almost all of Tulsa’s Black Lawyers, realtors, doctors and other professionals. Greenwood had some of the most successful black owned businesses. Greenwood was home to over 15 well know African American Physicians, including Dr. A.C. Jackson who was considered one of the most able Negro surgeons by one of the Mayo Brothers. Greenwood was home to not only one but two major Newspapers, The Tulsa Star and the Oklahoma Sun. Black Wall Street flourished until the Tulsa Race Riots of 1921. During this riot 100’s of African Americans were killed and 10000 left homeless as 35 square blocks of homes and businesses were torched and fire bombed by mobs of angry whites. This massacre has been omitted from state and local records and was rarely mentioned in history books until recently. ‘ The community mobilized its resources and rebuilt the Greenwood area within 5 years of the Tulsa Race Riots. To learn more about “Black Wall Street’ and the Tulsa Race riots read Black Wall Street: From Riot to Renaissance in Tulsa’s Historic Greenwood District.

Black History Month Did You Know…. Clara Luper was an OKC Civic Leader, retired school teacher, and a pioneering leader in the American Civil Rights Movement. She was born in rural Okfuskee County in 1923. Her father was a World War I veteran and laborer and her mother was a laundress. She went to high school in the all black town of Grayson, Oklahoma and attended college at Langston University where she received a BA in Mathematics and a minor in History. In 1950, she became the first African American student in the Graduate History Program at the University of Oklahoma. She received her MA in History Education from OU in 1951. In 1957 as Luper worked as a History Teacher at Dunjee High School in Spencer Oklahoma she be came advisor of the Oklahoma City NAACP Youth Council. She was deeply influenced by Martin Luther King Jr and his methods of nonviolent protest to affect change in the Civil Rights Movement. From 1958 to 1964 Luper mentored members of the NAACP Youth Council during its campaign to end segregation of public accommodations through sit-ins, protests and boycotts. This was highlighted in 1958 when Luper, her son and daughter and members of the NAACP Youth Council entered the segregated Katz Drug Store in downtown OKC and asked to be served. They were refused service and the police were called. NO arrests were made but three days later Katz corporate management in Kansas City desegregated its stores in three states. Luper was very prominent in the National Civil Rights movement. She took part in the 1963 March on Washington where Dr. Martin Luther King gave his “I have a Dream Speech” and also took part in the 1965 Selma to Montgomery Marches. In 1972, Luper ran unsuccessfully for election to the US Senate. When asked by the press if she, a black woman, could represent white people, she responded: “ Of course, I can represent white people, black people, red people, yellow people, brown people, and polka dot people. You see, I have lived long enough to know that people are people.” Luper taught History in the Oklahoma City School system for 41 years. She retired from John Marshall in 1989. Luper received hundreds of awards and was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, the Okahoma Women’s Hall of Fame, and the Oklahoma Afro-American Hall of Fame among others.
