The Joseph DeJames Memorial Scholarship Fund honors the memory of a man who dedicated his life to ensuring kids who had become ensnared in the Juvenile Justice System would not be mistreated, simply because they were accused of breaking the law.
Often times battling those who turned a blind eye to these kids, or worse yet, advocated harsh treatment for them. Joe worked tirelessly to ensure Juvenile Detention Centers provided safe, clean and decent living conditions. Joe also worked to see that the kids housed in detention centers would receive a comprehensive educational and social service program.
