Samuel H. Jones chaired the Salem Community College Foundation from 2000 to 2010. Under Mr. Jones’ leadership, the Foundation enjoyed unprecedented growth through the creation the International Flameworking Conference and the Gala, which raises funds to support SCC scholarships and programs.

As former chair of the Salem County Utilities Authority (SCUA), Mr. Jones actively supported an intriguing idea that has become a reality: to use methane gas extracted from the Salem County landfill in Alloway for educational purposes. The Glass Education Center, named in Mr. Jones’ honor, was built through a partnership, known as “Gas to Glass,” formed by the SCUA, Salem Community College and Energenic. Methane gas extracted from the landfill powers the equipment for the scientific glass and glass: applied craft and design programs. 
Mr. Jones’ $532,000 gift equipped the Center. His generosity has provided the resources to enable the College to build a world-class facility that supports the College’s expanding glass programs.

He was named 2008 Citizen of the Year by the Salem County Chamber of Commerce and received the Salem Community College Foundation Medallion at SCC’s 2008 Commencement.
