Jacob left us far too early on September 22, 2013.  His passing brought about a revival in the Shoals community as well as in Surry County. Jacob had high standards and always strived to be the best at all he did. Through this event we aim to honor those standards by coming together to raise money for an annual scholarship to be awarded to someone who shares those standards. The first scholarship was awarded to a member of Jacob’s high school graduating class of 2016. 

"One day I want to look God in the  eyes and tell Him that I've used every single ounce of talent He gave me."
