KNOX - The Garden Club of Clarion County honored Isaak Jones, son of David and Debra Jones of Knox, with the 2020 Hannah Fox Memorial scholarship. Jones will be attending Grove City College this fall to major in conservation biology.

He hopes to pursue a career with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, or as an ecologist. Jones is a homeschool graduate, but was active in the football, basketball, and music programs at Keystone High School.

He was a four-year letterman in both football and basketball. For football, he was selected as the D-9 South All-Conference MVP and D-9 South All-Conference 18 team quarterback.

In basketball, he was the MVP of the KSAC Championship basketball game, and third Team All-Conference. In addition to sports, he was actively involved in the music program at Keystone, participating in the musicals, concert choir, and select ensemble.

He also plays guitar for the praise band at his church. Additionally, Jones was selected to staff for the TeenPact Leadership School, a nationwide leadership and civics organization.

Jones is also an Eagle Scout with Troop 55, and constructed the new pavilion at the Clarion Hospital Cancer Center for his Eagle Scout project. Jones is thankful for this scholarship as he intends to pursue a career that supports the values of this organization.
