For many of us Mr. Jones taught 3 generations of our family. He did whatever was necessary to meet the needs of his students. During his career he served as school bus driver, basketball coach, teacher and principal. He was instrumental in securing a new gymnasium and started one of the first school lunch programs at Harmony Elementary. He received the 2007 School Bell Education Award from Oglethorpe University. Mr. Jones was honored by the citizens of Gwinnett County by naming a new middle school after him, the Glenn C. Jones Middle School in Buford. He always gave much credit for his success to his wife Agnes and was most proud when Glenn C. Jones M.S. named their library The Agnes Jones Media Center.
