In 1987 the Upper Makefield Business Association (UMBA), bestowed its first set of scholarships to four local students. With a new school year underway, we thought it would be a great idea to reconnect with our scholarship recipients from the past 30+ years and see "where are they now."
Tim Jones graduated from Carson Long Military Academy in 1989 before going to Bucks County Community College for two semesters. He grew up in Pineville, Pennsylvania and his family have deep roots in the community. The scholarship that Tim received from UMBA helped “bridge the gap between some of the student loans and tuition.”
After college, Tim kept his education, talents and family in the local area. He starting his own general contracting business, JHS - Jones Home Services, as well as working for other local contractors and builders specializing in everything from HVAC to high quality finish carpentry.
UMBA is proud to have played a part in Tim’s educational journey and we are glad to reconnect with one of the UMBA Scholarship recipients from 1991. UMBA's goal is to better the community we love through fundraising for scholarships, emergency services, people in need and so much more. Some of UMBA's events include the Revolutionary Run, the Annual Upper Makefield Fire Company Dinner and so much more.
