Tim Jolley Memorial Scholarship
Tim Jolley was a student at KPC. He was 50 when he suddenly passed away in 2013.
Jolley’s family, while reeling from their loss, felt strongly that they wanted to honor their son’s memory with a scholarship to the college where Tim had found his place and was pursuing a process technology associate of applied science degree. They came forward to express how “super happy” he was with his classes and how he had bonded with several faculty members during his time here. He was very proud of his successes in the KRC Math Lab and that he had been able to raise his GPA to become eligible for induction in Phi Theta Kappa, the honor society for two-year colleges.
Jolley’s family worked closely with KPC’s advancement office to pull together a named, restricted memorial scholarship in record time so that memorial donations for Tim could be directed to the new scholarship.
This scholarship was established with a $5,000 donation from the family and subsequent memorial donations have bolstered the fund. The stated purpose of the scholarship is to provide a memorial to Tim Jolley that is intended to provide financial assistance to a deserving fellow KPC student working toward a degree in Tim’s chosen area of study: process technology.
Tim’s family indicated, "he was lovable, funny, very private, and very passionate about many issues of our time.
While attending KPC’s Kenai River Campus of the University of Alaska, he earned straight A’s in all of his classes. He loved going to school and living in Alaska."
