The Jones Leadership Center would not have been possible without the generous contribution and support from Mr. Jones' daughter Dottie and her husband Bob. Dottie wanted a way for her father's contribution to the Madison community to be remembered and celebrated for years to come. What came after was the modern day Jones Leadership Center and the formation of the Empower Leadership Series: The JLC workshop series dedicated to students who want to develop their leadership style through empowerment and reflection.
