Lovely Miss Jones, initially started out as a blog. The purpose was solely to encourage others through relevant experiences. After celebrating our 1 year anniversary in 2015, we felt a pull to start the LMJ Foundation. Our founder, Krystle, has experienced great financial strain during her undergraduate career and knew there was a need for other college students as well. The LMJ Scholarship was created to help the next generation live out their dreams and purpose, by helping alleviate the financial strain that comes along with pursuing a degree.
“When tuition becomes unmanageable, it can have a direct impact on the college dropout rate. According to College Atlas, 70% of Americans will study at a four-year college, but less than two-thirds will graduate with a degree, and 30% of first-year students drop out after their first year of school.” This is why the LMJ Scholarship Fund was created. We want to be a bridge that helps connect young people to their dreams.
Since the year of 2015, we have hosted a Scholarship Benefit to raise money to help with College tuition. During each benefit we are sure to honor educators, have speakers in the educational field to help stress the importance of education, and most importantly award college students with scholarship money for school.
Since 2015, we have been able to raise over $5,000 and gave away 14 scholarship awards! And we cannot stop there. We are continuing this year and we need your support!
Please help us as we intend to help young people pursue their dreams! This next generation needs all the help they can get to succeed and be our future leaders!
