Tri County Tech Foundation Education Fund

Educational Funds are created for community members that have left a lasting impact on Tri County Tech. They provide students with the opportunity to succeed, whether it be providing tuition, technology, or other needs that prevent student success.

The Wes Jones Education Fund

The Wes Jones Education Fund
The Jones family has owned Westside Paint & Body for over 50 yrs in Bartlesville, Ok. Wes began working at the shop with his father and grandfather before taking over and continuing to grow the business. He was well respected and built a reputation with his artistic custom paint work. Wes won multiple awards and was featured in over 100 magazine articles. Most notable was his work on “The Dream Truck” – he was a true innovator. Wes dreamed big, worked hard, and lived large!

In his honor, his family would like to assist students in learning the trade, promote his same passion, and encourage creativity. They want his memory to live on through the future masters of the trade and help students who have chosen to stand out.
