Mr. Avera graduated from The University of Alabama in 1978 with a Bachelor of Arts in History.  He has asked that the scholarships be named in honor of Dr. Howard Jones, from whom Mr. Avera took several courses.

Mr. Avera graduated with a JD from The University of Alabama in 1981 and is currently the Executive Vice President, Secretary, and General Counsel at Flowers Foods, in Thomasville, Georgia.
