Jason Tharp Memorial Scholarship


The Jason Tharp Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Jason Robert Tharp, a 19-year-old Marine and 2004 graduate of Braxton County High School, who died February 8, 2005 during water survival maneuvers at boot camp in Parris Island, South Carolina. The goals of the scholarship are to keep Jason’s memory alive and to provide funding for students like Jason who want to attend college. While a student at BCHS, Jason was active in FFA and enjoyed art. His goal in joining the Marines was to earn money to go to college to study art.
