Foundation awards 11 college scholarships to Andrew Jackson HS grads & unveils “Jaguars Reading Den"

Posted Jun 13, 2013

At the unveiling of the newly renovated “Jaguars Reading Den” at Andrew Jackson High School, Jaguars owner Shad Khan announced the awarding of 11 scholarships by the Jaguars Foundation totaling over $25,000.

At the unveiling of the newly renovated “Jaguars Reading Den” at Andrew Jackson High School, Jaguars owner Shad Khan announced the awarding of 11 scholarships by the Jaguars Foundation totaling over $25,000.  These students will be attending various colleges including the University of Florida, University of North Florida, Florida State College at Jacksonville and Bethune-Cookman University. The college scholarship program was established as a part of the Jaguars corporate partnership with Andrew Jackson High School to assist students at the school who successfully completed the Jaguars Foundation’s Honor Rows program. 

The Jaguars Reading Den at Andrew Jackson High School is a multi-purpose meeting room for students, teachers and staff. The Jaguars Reading Den features two lounge areas, interchangeable study centers, hundreds of books and magazines and signed team paraphernalia including a game day ball signed by Shad Khan and a new Jaguars helmet signed by Jaguars Head Coach Gus Bradley. The team invested nearly $25,000 to renovate the room.

“Shad Khan is a champion of education, and scholarships from the Jaguars Foundation will help these students take the next steps needed for their successful futures,” said Jaguars Foundation President Peter Racine.  He added, “We are so pleased to provide this refurbished room to the school. One of the unique aspects of the Jaguars Reading Den is that through our partnership with FIRSTBOOK, the students are free to take any book they like home with them to incorporate into their home libraries.”

The Jaguars Foundation and team have a strong commitment to education and provide grants exceeding $1 million annually to support youth and families and other NFL and team initiatives in the community.
