Jefferies Award of Merit (JAM) The board seeks to maintain the program's original intent of recognizing outstanding students, independent of their parent's financial resources. The Jefferies Award of Merit (JAM), similar to the National Honor Society, recognizes and rewards student excellence in and out of the classroom. The Jefferies Award of Merit is a prestigious award that winners are proud to list on their resumes and to display for years to come. Winners receive an engraved lead-crystal paperweight, as well as a $3,000 scholarship. 

Carl Hathaway Memorial Award (CHMA)

This award is based on the applicant’s demonstration of the following characteristics which Carl recognized as key to individual success: overcoming adversity; showing perseverance, grit, and drive; or coping with overwhelming factors to succeed. Winners  also receive an engraved lead-crystal paperweight.
