JAGUARS INVESTING IN EDUCATION Jaguars Owner Shad Khan and Harry Frisch, Founder of Beaver Street Fisheries both were immigrants to America and grateful for the opportunities they had to achieve the American dream. Their shared belief in the value of education and high character led them to form the Shad Khan and Harry Frisch Scholarship Program. The scholarship program supports graduating high-school seniors who have successfully completed the Jacksonville Jaguars Foundation’s Honor Rows Program and/or have exhibited a growth mindset in their personal and academic life. These scholarships help to support emerging freshman attending the University of North Florida, Florida State College at Jacksonville, or an accredited college, university, or technical training school that is recognized as a two-year or four-year program. This year the Jaguars Foundation is partnering with City Year to host Family FAFSA Workshops at four local high schools. These workshops are designed to share the latest information on federal and state fi nancial aid programs as well as resources for scholarships, including the Shad Khan and Harry Frisch Scholarship, with the families of graduating seniors. The goal is to help increase Duval County’s FAFSA completion rate by helping to combat challenges that may keep families from attending these important sessions. Family FAFSA Workshops will be held at Andrew Jackson High School, Jean Ribault High School, Ed White High School and William M. Raines High School. Most visible on game day is the Jaguars Foundation’s Honor Rows program. Presented by “Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow,” Honor Rows is a nationally recognized program that uses seats at Jaguars home games as incentives for youth to set and achieve goals in the areas of academic improvement, personal behavior, physical fi tness, and community service. The Jaguars Foundation partners with 40 Jacksonville-area nonprofi ts to provide more than 5,000 children with a game day experience each season. Approximately 55,000 kids have participated in Honor Rows since 1995. “Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow” is a campaign in conjunction with the Florida Department of Transportation that is a pedestrian and bicycle safety initiative.
