New Andrew Jones scholarship to train student activists

Andrew W. Jones was passionate about social justice and protecting the environment. Now a new Angeles Chapter Sierra Club scholarship, the Andrew W. Jones Young Activist Scholarship, will be awarded to five students in the L.A. area to train them in social and environmental activism.

Andrew, who died of cancer in April, gave the Chapter a generous gift to continue its work on environmental preservation.
