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.

School Stations Work to Stay Relevant

Each year the Michigan Association of Broadcasters Foundation names high school and college radio stations of the year. Radio World contacted the 2008 recipients. What we heard is that students tend to see themselves as innovators, but ones who are not particularly interested in entering traditional radio jobs.
