Jim Hill Award Stipend
Jackson was the recipient of the 2011 Jim High Award, the highest award given to a student at Jim Hill High School. Along with the distinction of the award, Jackson received a stipend to place towards my college expenses. The act of kindness resonated with me. Thus, Jackson and his mother decided to keep the tradition going. Starting in May 2012, Jackson began contributing the stipends to succeeding Jim Hill Award recipients.
