Nationally-syndicated country music show host Bobby Bones is putting his money where his mouth is. He is setting up a college scholarship program for students from his high school in Arkansas.
Students from Mountain Pine High School in Mountain Pine, Ark., will be the beneficiaries of the “The Bobby Bones Don’t Be Skipping Class” scholarship. Bones will pick the yearly winner from a nominee list and personally present the award at graduation. There are less than 300 students in the 7th–12th-grade school, so the odds are good.
According to a release, the successful candidate should exhibit “strong leadership skills, strong work ethic, and a desire to spread kindness to others.”
“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 said.
“The Bobby Bones Show” is syndicated by Premiere Networks.
