The Evelyn Jones Endowed Scholarship

Evelyn Krueger was a member of the Madison High School Class of 1930. After graduation, she obtained her teaching certificate at Eastern State Normal School and taught for one year in Junius. She earned a B.S. degree in library science from George Peabody College in Nashville, Tennessee and a B.S. in nursing from Yale University. Evelyn married Frank Jones and settled in Delaware where she worked as a teacher, librarian and nurse there and in Washington, D.C. Three years after her husband's death in 1996, Evelyn's failing health precipitated her to move to Bethel Lutheran Home in Madison, where she passed away on September 28, 2001. The school district received $161,288.52 from the estate which was sent to the Madison Central School Educational Foundation to invest, with the interest on the investment to be used to provide a scholarship in her name.

Evelyn's gift has helped many Madison students attend college. We are grateful for her generosity and the impact it has made over the past 20 years. As an endowed scholarship, there will always be an Evelyn Krueger Jones Scholarship at Madison High School, which is a wonderful legacy to leave one's high school and one's community.

The interest on investment of the fund will be awarded equally to all MHS seniors with a grade point average of 4.0 or greater, as the Evelyn Krueger Jones Scholarship.
