The Jones-Robinson Scholarship was created to honor the five children that perished in the Sommerset Circle fire of 1990 in Madison, Wisconsin. The children, who were African-American, came from a low-income single parent household. Following this tragedy, The Sable Flames, Inc., African-American Firefighters of the Madison Fire Department, created a scholarship fund in the children's honor. The scholarship is designed for those of a similar socioeconomic background who are aspiring to improve their lives through higher education.
