Washington, D.C. — Capital City Mambo Sauce is proud to announce the establishment of The Capital City Excellence Award in memory and honor of the late Charles Jones, celebrating the outstanding achievements and leadership qualities of students at St. Augustine High School in New Orleans, LA. The inaugural scholarship was presented alongside the Stan Scott Legacy Award, a one-time award honoring the Class of 2003 at St. Augustine High School.

Through this fund, Capital City seeks to perpetuate his influence by investing in the next generation of leaders who will shape a brighter future.

In its inaugural year, Capital City is proud to announce that one scholarship has already been presented, with plans for a significant future scholarship to be awarded next year. The future scholarship recipient will receive $40,000 over four years, at $10,000 per year.

The Stan Scott Legacy Award:

Additionally, Capital City presented a one-time scholarship of $2,500 to Ryan Allen Jr., the first recipient of the Stan Scott Legacy Award.
