This fund was established by Doug and Denise Jones in honor and memory of their son, Nathan. Nathan W. Jones was the Head Groundskeeper for the El Paso Chihuahuas and graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Turf Grass Management. Early on as a student at MSU, it was very evident that Nate would make this his career, but it wasn’t until his arrival in El Paso that his career also became his one true passion. His love for turf management wasn’t limited to the Chihuahuas ball diamond and extended to many local high school baseball and soccer fields. His love of not only the Chihuahuas but also the people of El Paso is the reason the Jones family wishes to offer this scholarship in his adopted hometown. Our hope is to encourage and support others that have chosen turf management as a career. Special thanks to all the people of the Chihuahuas organization and the people of El Paso for making such a wonderful impact on Nathan’s life.
