The Ricky Jones Memorial scholarship was established in 2010 in memory of Ricky Jones, an avid agribusiness man and farmer in Pulaski, Virginia. Every year, at the annual Pulaski County High School FFA Banquet, the scholarship is presented to the recipient(s). The scholarship is given based on a culmination of academic achievements, extra-curricular activities, recommendations and an application essay.

Thornspring Pastures is located at 5090 Thornspring Road in Pulaski, VA just 1/4 mile on the right after Cougar Xpress.
