Kennett High School celebrated senior James S. Jones signing his National Letter of Intent to play Division II soccer at Belmont Abbey College.
James (sitting middle) was surrounded by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Hal and Kimberly Jones, as well as (standing from left) Head Coach Mr. Mike Barr, Athletic Director Mr. Sean Harvey, and Principal Dr. Jeremy Hritz.
James was an active member of Kennett High School’s soccer and track teams. During the course of his high school athletic career James received many awards, including the Captain’s Award and the Milman E. Prettyman Prize which is awarded to student-athletes who demonstrate one or more of the ideals of sportsmanship, including fairness, civility, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Off of the field, James is a dedicated community member who actively volunteers as a coach for the Southern Chester County Soccer Association Summer Camp.
“Reflecting on my career as a Kennett High School athlete, the camaraderie of my teammates is what stands out the most,” said James. “Everyone came together to strive and achieve one goal; winning!”
James chose to attend Belmont Abbey College due to the school’s small size and excellent educational programs. James will study criminal justice, and has a goal of becoming a detective or special agent after he completes his education. James is excited to continue his athletic and academic careers as a Belmont Abbey Crusader!
The Kennett Consolidated School District would like to congratulate James on signing his National Letter of Intent.
