Bobby Bones, host of the Premiere Networks syndicated “Bobby Bones Show,” has created a college scholarship for students at his former high school in Arkansas. “The Bobby Bones Don’t Be Skipping Class” annual scholarship will be awarded to a Mountain Pine High School senior who “exhibits strong leadership skills, strong work ethic, and a desire to spread kindness to others.”
The annual scholarship was announced as part of The Bobby Bones Show’s second annual Joy Week celebration, which coincided with the second annual celebration of the show’s anniversary on Country radio. From March 2-6, Bones encouraged listeners to “choose joy, spread happiness and do good things for others” with a week of live studio performances by Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley, Jake Owen, Eric Paslay, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley and others.
Bones stated, “I know I’m no Oprah, but I’m trying. Education was a really important part of my life, so I hope to give back to someone who needs the help, much like I did.” Bones will choose the winner from a list of qualified applicants at the end of the school year and will present the scholarship in-person at graduation.
