On Sunday, April 21, 2013 we unexpectedly lost our beloved Joyce Colbert-Jones. While attending the Seabreeze Jazz Festival in our hometown, she collapsed from an aneurysm. More ...

My twin sister, Joyce Colbert-Jones was a 1978 graduate of Bay High School in Panama City, FL. She relocated to Atlanta, Georgia in the 1980’s. She was a great supporter of the arts; Joyce loved all things related to art, fashion and music. As such, it was no surprise that she returned annually to Panama City Beach, FL to attend the Seabreeze Jazz Festival.

On Saturday, April 20, 2013, while attending the Seabreeze Jazz Festival, Joyce suddenly collapsed and passed away the following day at the hospital.  In recognition of her two great loves—music and her hometown, Panama City, FL — the "Joyce Loved Music" scholarship was set up.  Scholarships are presented every year in April to a deserving Northwest Florida area senior high school band student on the main stage at the Seabreeze Jazz Festival held in Panama City Beach, FL.

Students will be asked to submit a brief statement with their applications stating why they should receive the "Joyce Loved Music" scholarship.  Entries will be reviewed and a recipient will be chosen.
