How We Help
The Chaenda L. Jones Scholarship Program
The Chaenda L. Jones (CLJ) Scholarship Program was initiated by the Power of Pink! Foundation, Inc. in October 2012. The purpose was to develop an educationally-focused initiative that epitomized the life of Ms. Chaenda L. Jones, mother of two children and hard worker, who lost her battle to breast cancer in 2011. The CLJ Scholarship Program was started to foster a positive mind-set that encourages students affected by breast cancer to embody a lifestyle of excellence. As a result, the Board of Directors of Power of Pink! Foundation, Inc. worked diligently over the winter months of 2012 to ensure that the scholarship would be available to qualified students in May of 2013.
The Board of Directors will continue to serve as the coordinators of the Chaenda L. Jones Scholarship Program and plan to further develop the program into a mentor opportunity.
