The Jordan Dodson Memorial Scholarship
The Jordan Dodson Memorial Scholarship was created in 2022 in honor of Jordan Dodson, the daughter of Craig and Tiffanie Dodson of the Denton High Cares Board. Jordan Dodson passed in the Spring of 2021. She was an artist and a wonderful person who helped the Foundation in many ways and we wanted to honor her memory.
The Jordan Dodson Memorial Scholarship will continue to be given to a Denton High art student. In partnership with the art department there will be a poster contest for our signature event Lisapalooza. The winner of the poster contest will also win the scholarship.
Scholarship Recipient Testimony:
"I am a recipient of the Jordan Dodson Memorial Scholarship. Thank you so much for choosing me as a recipient of this scholarship and I will continue to work hard and excel in biochemistry as a freshman in UT Dallas. I am highly grateful for the Jordan Dodson Memorial Scholarship for giving me the opportunity to pay less in college tuition. This scholarship means a lot to me as I become more energized to fulfill my dreams of making a difference in both science and healthcare."
