The George Tedford Memorial Scholarship Fund is a program designed to award a $1,500 scholarship to a talented, highly motivated Jenks High School Senior Student-Athlete who has demonstrated leadership potential and desires to pursue a career in business and a full-time undergraduate degree. Consistent with the example they set, this scholarship is reserved for a student-athlete who excels both in the classroom and on the field and desires to be a business leader in his or her community.
This Scholarship was established in 2005 through the generosity of the Jenks Chamber of Commerce and the Tedford Family.
I am pleased to announce that the winner of this year’s George E. Tedford Memorial Scholarship is Sarah Thiessen.
Sarah is the daughter of Mitch and Christy Thiessen. She is a Distinguished Graduate of Jenks High School with a 4.1 weighted GPA.
Sarah’s passion is playing volleyball, which she has done for the past 4 seasons. She was chosen captain of the Junior Varsity team in 2013 and was chosen captain of the Varsity team this season. She has been awarded the Superintendent’s Honor Roll each semester as well as a member of the National Honor Society.
Sarah is planning to attend Oral Roberts in the fall on a Volleyball scholarship.
On behalf of Tedford Insurance, we wish her all the best in her future endeavors!
