Jack Roberts Memorial Funds Created at Community Foundation
Jack Roberts’ family created a scholarship and field of interest fund in his memory at the Community Foundation of Washington County MD. Jack passed away in December 2019. He graduated from Smithsburg High School where he ran cross country, indoor and outdoor track and was a member of the National Honor Society.
