The Jeffery Biggs Scholarship

This Scholarship Is A Prestigious Opportunity That Provides Financial Support To Deserving Students

Jeffery Biggs served as the Community Outreach Coordinator for 334 Prevention Project. However, he did not simply come to work and do a job. Jeffery was known to all as a passionate and dedicated volunteer to every cause he served, but he gave special attention to the efforts of 334 Prevention, known at the time as the Dothan-Houston County Substance Abuse Partnership. He was responsible for organizing the Dancing with the Stars fundraiser for 334 Prevention. In addition to the Dancing with the Stars project, Jeffery was also very active with various community activities. He especially liked working with kids to share the dangers of substance abuse. He seized every moment possible to make his community a better place to live. Aside from his work with 334 Prevention, he was an active volunteer with his church and his son’s school. He had a deep love for nonprofits and community service. He was known to be a positive force in everything he did and brought support and hope to others he worked with on his community service projects.

In October 2012, Jeffery was diagnosed with kidney and colon cancer. He made the difficult decision to take the path of medical retirement so that he could spend time with his family and undergo cancer treatments. Jeffery battled several rounds of chemotherapy as well as surgeries. Even through this most difficult of fights, Jeffery remained positive and strong. He continued to be an active member of his church and dedicated much of his time to being with his family. On December 30, 2015, Jeffery lost his battle with cancer at the age of 40. Though Jeffery may be gone, the legacy that he left behind lives on in his community work and in the hearts of all those who ever knew him. At 334 Prevention Project, we honor Jeffery’s memory by giving back to the community, just as he did. It is our honor to award a $5000 scholarship in Jeffery’s memory to a deserving high school senior each year. The recipient exemplifies the values that Jeffery channeled into his everyday life: leadership, service, and hard work.
