Jeff Slama Memorial Scholarship Chili Cookoff Fundraiser

Jeff Slama was fatally wounded by a home intruder in Oct. 2013. He was very active in volunteer work following the Joplin tornado in May 2011. We was also a strong believer and supporter of Catholic School education in Joplin. Annually, in Sept., there's a chili dinner cookoff with the proceeds going to a scholarship for JACS students. Visit our event page for more information.

Edie's Angels Scholarship Program
JACS offers a limited scholarship program to partially assist with fees and tuition. This program was created after the 2011 tornado as a result of generous donors who wanted to relieve any burdens on families who were affected by the storm. The fund is named for one of our donors, a JACS mom, whose husband and two children perished as a result of the storm. The program is currently funded through an annual grant and private donations from individuals.
Donations for this program can be accepted online: DONATE HERE or by sending donations to:
