Established in 2020, the “No Ordinary Joe” scholarship is awarded annually to high school students residing and attending school in Bay County and Walton County, FL who exhibit leadership with a strong sense of community and service. The Foundation’s Board of Trustees aims to recognize the community’s extraordinary students and award multiple levels of scholarships for nominated high school students, concluding with a single named winner of the major “No Ordinary JOE” scholarship for each county. The final winners were determined after a round of interviews held in April.

Amberlynn Oswold of Bay High School and Colton Farmer of South Walton High School will each receive an additional $10,000 scholarship and have both been named the “No Ordinary JOE” scholarship winner for their respective counties.

The St. Joe Community Foundation believes that by participating in community projects benefitting others, students can build a multitude of skills, learn problem-solving abilities, boost self-confidence and self-esteem, and develop overall better psychological, social, and cognitive thinking.

Rising senior year high school students who are interested in being nominated for a “No Ordinary Joe” scholarship should begin that process by inquiring at their school’s guidance department.
