The BAC Scholarship Fund was founded by Kevin Jones, a Rocky Mount, NC native in an effort to show the strength of people.
Shortly after Kevin left home for college, his father was laid off which cut the household income in half and made paying for college quite a challenge. Realizing the significance of becoming the first in his family to graduate from college, Kevin took out student loans to finance his college education.
After graduating from North Carolina A&T State University in 2012, Kevin started his career in public service and began to face his looming college debt. With an entry level job and a young family to care for, Kevin often wished that he owed just $1,000 less --- so he decided to help someone else "owe just $1,000 less" and the BAC Scholarship Fund was born.
Kevin lives with his wife Talia along with their daughters, Alanna and Aubree.
