Sober Youth, Inc. has teamed up with Dr. Nicole Clavo, mother of Jaulon Jamaul Clavo, to establish the Jaulon Clavo Scholarship Fund in honor of his life. The Jaulon Clavo Scholarship will be awarded annually to two deserving student athletes, one male and one female, that exemplifies academic athletic and community leadership at Grant Union High School, Sacramento Charter High School and Inderkum High School.
Jaulon Jamaul Clavo, known as JJ to his family and friends was born, May 27 1998. JJ was a senior and starting corner back for the Grant Pacers of Grant Union High School in Sacramento California when he was tragically murdered on November 13, 2015 while traveling with four teammates just a few hours before a playoff game. JJ’s senseless death has brought shock and outrage to communities throughout California.
JJ was not just a student athlete; He impacted every life he came in contact with. Prior to his senior season JJ joined the PlaySober 24/7 Youth Campaign lead by Sober Youth, Inc., a Youth Alcohol and Drug Prevention organization committed to reducing underage drinking and drug use including marijuana, steroids and tobacco among middle and high school students. In July of 2015 JJ became the first high school football player in California to take the PlaySober 24/7 youth pledge.
