Partners in Education Foundation George Mooney and Michael William Clarke Memorial Scholarship


Round Rock ISD student who demonstrate excellence in academics, community service, leadership, and volunteerism.

George Gerald (Jerry) Mooney Jr. was a local leader in Round Rock who volunteered his time and talents on numerous boards and civic organizations. He was a man on a mission; determined to give back to a community he loved. He was a member of the Lions Club, Rotary Club, Texas Baptist Children’s Home, Round Rock Chamber of Commerce, and was Chairperson of Frontier Days numerous times and was a member of the Round Rock ISD Partners in Education Foundation Board. His joy was volunteering as a mentor, where he assisted students at many Round Rock ISD schools, including Round Rock High School, by volunteering in the classrooms and mentoring students; and after school he found time to coach his son’s baseball and basketball teams. George G. Mooney lost a battle with cancer in Dallas, Texas in March 1999.

Mr. Clarke dedicated countless hours as a Round Rock ISD mentor between three different campuses (Deep Wood Elementary, Gattis Elementary and C.D. Fulkes Middle School). He also served the District as a member on the Citizens Committee for boundary changes. Mr. Clarke also served as a Round Rock ISD Partners in Education Foundation Board Member and on the Executive Board as Treasurer. With a great sense of humor and knowledge, Mr. Clarke served not only the students, but the Foundation when called upon. The Foundation was blessed to have such a dedicated and loyal member for so many years
