Bobby Bones Announces College Scholarship for His High School in Arkansas

LOS ANGELES, March 11, 2015 – Bobby Bones, host of the award-winning Bobby Bones Show, announced on-air that he 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.”  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.
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.”
