Ignite Ole Miss: Help Donate to Jackelyn K. & Christopher F. Byrd Memorial Scholarship

Jackie and Chris

The countdown has begun…only (nine) days until the race!

As of this week, we have reached a couple of remarkable milestones. First, we have surpassed $70,000 and are very close to reaching our stretch goal of $75,000. Second, we hit the 300 donor mark, which is unbelievable and truly shows the strong support we have received.

If our stretch goal is met, we will be able to expand the scholarships awarded each year to two students of The Patterson School Accountancy, of which Jackie was an alumna.

We would also like to give a huge thanks to Lightbeings Living and our dear friend Kristin who created the “remembrance” candle in honor of Jackie and Chris. As previously noted, part of the proceeds will go directly to the scholarship. There is a limited number of candles remaining which can be ordered here:

Thank you so much for your generosity and support in this journey. We couldn’t have done it without you. It’s time…let’s do it!
