Alabama Public Television Young Heroes of 2006

Rod Jones

Birmingham, Alabama

The youngest child of divorced parents, Rod Jones was forced to take on greater responsibility than most kids do at an early age. Jones combines strong study habits with a passion for theatre design to maintain an “A” average while also holding down a job to help pay current expenses and save for college. Honored as “Student of the Week” by The Birmingham News, he has served as an actor, designer, lighting director, carpenter, painter and stagehand at his school theatre while also taking on special projects with local entertainment venues. Jones is committed to becoming a master builder so that he can give back to his community. Already accepted by Auburn University’s Building Science Department, he plans to hone his talents enough to create a diversified construction company in his home state.
