Lloyd W. Jones Scholarship
The Maryland GFOA Executive Committee at its regular meeting on May
2, 1997, approved the establishment of the Lloyd W. Jones Memorial Scholarship
Fund. Lloyd Jones was a past president of the Maryland GFOA and held
vital City, County and State finance posts in addition to the many other
organizations which he served as a volunteer. He was a most exemplary
public servant in his positions as Director of the Maryland Deposit
Insurance Fund, Director of the Department of Assessments and Taxation,
Director of the Maryland Lottery, Chief Accountant for Baltimore City
and Director of Finance of Carroll County.
To honor Lloyd and the principles he stood for, Maryland GFOA annually
awards a scholarship grant to a government employee to attend the MDGFOA
Summer Conference who otherwise would not be eligible to attend at their
employer’s expense. The scholarship consists of free conference
registration and room plus $200 to help defray the cost of attending
the conference. It also includes a one-year membership in the MDGFOA.
To be eligible, nominees must be employed by the State or a local government
in the practice of governmental financial management, who have made an outstanding contribution to their
organization in the performance of their duties during the past year.
Nominations may be made by any Active Member, with the final selection
by the Maryland GFOA Executive Board.
