Linda George Scholarship

The Miss Linda George Scholarship Fund is a program designed to award a $4,000 scholarship to an academically talented, highly motivated Jenks High School senior who has demonstrated social commitment and leadership potential and who wishes to pursue a full-time undergraduate degree in education.

The scholarship program honors the late Linda George, a long-time teacher at Jenks Public Schools. Miss George taught 3rd grade for 45 years and continued teaching as a substitute for the next 20 years. In 1999, she was named Jenks Teacher of the Century. Miss George served as an Ambassador for the Jenks Chamber of Commerce and was involved with the Jenks United Methodist Church, the Jenks Lions Club, and two teaching sororities. Miss George lived to be 100 years old. This scholarship program, established in 2011, is funded through the generosity of Miss George’s estate to honor her dedication to Excellence in Education at Jenks.
