Jake Owen Donates $15,000 to Education Foundation in Florida; Plus, Check Out His New Beachy Video, “Good Company”

Vero Beach, Fla., native Jake Owen made his hometown very happy last week by donating $15,000 to the Education Foundation of Indian River County.

The funds from the Jake Owen Foundation will be used to send students to the INTEL International Science & Engineering Fair, expand the STEP Into Kindergarten Program and implement the new Academic Youth Development Program. The $15,000 donation will make a difference for students of all ages: 210 pre-K students will prepare to enter kindergarten through the STEP program; 200 eighth graders will get support as they transition to algebra through the Academic Youth Development Program; and two high school students will represent Vero Beach High School—Jake’s alma mater—at the INTEL International Science & Engineering Fair on May 14 in Los Angeles.

Kudos, Jake, on a job well done.

And since this is a Jake Owen story, check out his new video for “Good Company,” a tune that is currently No. 53 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart after two weeks.
