Jack de Leon Memorial Scholarship Fund

No cupcakes to deliver; no wrapping paper to buy.  Just give online!  This is our main fundraising event of the year, and 100% of donations directly benefit future mathletes.We need a to not only establish a scholarship fund, but also be able to distribute scholarships in the future.

In the Spring of 2016, the Austin High School Chapter of Mu Alpha Theta lost a young mathematician, Jack de Leon, in a tragic motorcycle accident. Jack not only aced every Calculus test, but also inspired an extremely competitive and popular math team.

We wish to continue a scholarship in memory of Jack de Leon (1999-2016). Jack was an exceptional student and mathematician at Austin High School who had a great influence on the development of our math team. We want to (fund and) award a $500 scholarship for college Freshmen (who are Austin High alums). The recipient of this award must have been successful in both the math classroom and in at least one math event at Academic UIL. The recipient of this award should be someone who a leader in Austin High's Math Club and Mu Alpha Theta. Please help us honor his life by donating to the Jack de Leon Memorial Scholarship Fund.
