The Mary Jane Malone English Scholarship, established in 2016, is a $1,000 Scholarship to be awarded to a senior at Magnet High. The scholarship has been established in honor of Mary Jane Malone (Class of 1994), who was a member of the Student Government Association, Debate, and National Honor Society. She was also head cheerleader and Homecoming Queen. Mary Jane desired to teach English and to write after graduating from college, but passed away at a very young age. Through the generosity of her parents Farrell and Martha Malone, who have established this scholarship, her love for Magnet and her interest in literature and writing remain in our thoughts.
The scholarship will be awarded to a senior who meets most or all of the following criteria:
*is an active member of campus life
*has demonstrated a persistent passion for English Language Arts through his or her coursework
*exhibits a love of reading and writing
*has career plans which may include a major in an English related field. Teachers, parents, or students may nominate a candidate; students may also nominate themselves.
Semi-finalists will be chosen to prepare portfolios after all nominations are received.
The winner of the scholarship will be selected by the Malone family from a slate of finalists. Other finalists may be eligible for smaller awards.
