Who Can Apply: The Jay Spence Memorial Scholarship was established by family and friends to honor the memory of James “Jay” Edmund Spence, IV who lived from January 21, 1968 until August 13, 1985. He attended the public schools of Chatham County and was a student at Jordan-Matthews High School. It is the wish of the family that students will be assisted in their educational pursuits, individual lives will be touched and enriched, and recipients will be inspired to make a difference in the lives of others because Jay lived.
