Whether you are a Jones College Prep "Eagle" or a Jones Commercial/Jones Metropolitan "Jonesite," you are a vital part of the legacy that brings Jones to its proud history celebrating more than just years. Certainly much has changed at State and Harrison since it's beginning, but the Jones spirit and dedication to excellence remains the same.




The Jones Alumni Network is dedicated to more fully engaging and connecting with Jones' alumni and their families. Our current efforts include a quarterly newsletter that's full of class notes and alumni updates, as well as various ways for you to stay connected to this special community. 


Our second annual Alumni Night at the Theatre was held on March 23, 2019. Attendees enjoyed a reception held on the second floor balcony, followed by complimentary tickets to see JCP's performance of Spamalot! A great time was had by all!
