Timothy Ryan Jenks Memorial Scholarship Recipients

MalaikaWhitley

Malaika Whitley

Malaika Whitley and Paul Miller have been named the 2020 recipients of the Timothy Ryan Jenks Memorial Scholarship at Ames Middle School.

Malaika was recognized in particular for interest in music as a singer and baritone player; she also runs track and has significant family responsibilities.

PaulMiller

Paul Miller

Paul Miller was nominated in recognition of his founding and essential leadership of theAMS Dungeons and Dragons Club.

Each of them will receive a plaque and a$1000 award. As is the case every year, the only
problem the selection committee faced was narrowing down from an incredible
group of AMS actors, musicians, leaders, and athletes. We wish to offer hearty
congratulations to all the nominees (in no particular order): Tate Esser, Nick
Alexander, Noah Williamson, Ember Biggs, Nia Chhen Stewart, Evan Feilmeyer,
Josh Chen, Cade Taylor, Maya Fowler, Olivia Knutson, Haley Prakashan, and
Joshua Romitti.

The TRJMS is named for a proud Ames Middle School alum who was killed in an accident shortly after finishing up at AMS in 2014 and is dedicated to supporting students for showing passion for life and their extracurricular activities.
