Through Season, UAFS students have been able to experience a variety of events at no charge. Jones oversees art exhibits scheduled and hung in the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center and serves on the Chancellor’s Coalition for the Visual Arts.
Jones was also involved in bringing The Moving Wall to UAFS, a traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial that drew hundreds to the campus. Jones started the Miss UAFS Scholarship Pageant in 1978, a preliminary to the Miss Arkansas and Miss America pageants, and serves as its general chair. He has also been producer for the Miss Arkansas pageant for several years. Jones has given his time and talent to a multitude of events in the Fort Smith area, including the Mayor’s Fourth of July Committee, Paint the Park Pink and the Walk for the Cure. He is a past member of the board of the Fountain of Youth Adult Day Care and the Fort Smith Chorale. He received his associate degree from UAFS when it was Westark, a bachelor's degree from Arkansas Tech University and a master's degree from Webster University.
