Jon Jennings

Jon Jennings (Columbus, Ohio’s Westerville South, 2010) is a finance major, football player and a recipient of the Dean’s Scholarship. With the Dean’s Scholarship and football scholarship support, Jon’s financial aid adds up to almost a "full ride."  Jon says that the relief to his family and himself is "huge.  The scholarship has taken a lot of pressure off me so that I can concentrate on my education and give football the focused attention it requires."  Best of all, Jon looks forward a few years from now when he will graduate – virtually debt-free.

Jon’s excited about the Cardinal football season and off the field, finishing up most of his gen-ed classes. He hopes to make a little time this year to get involved in a jazz group on campus where he can put his drumming talents to good use.
