Hutchinson High School Students Host Field Night for Jones Family

HUTCHINSON, KANSAS – DECA students at Hutchinson High School will host a Field Night for the Jones Family, a fundraising event, on Saturday, August 13, 2022, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on the Don Michael Field at Hutchinson High School.

Field Night For the Jones Family is a reimagining of a similar event that DECA students hosted in 2021 for the Evans family after HHS coach, Clayton Evans, was injured. The Jones family from Nickerson were recently involved in an accident resulting in the death of coach Trey Jones, and the injury of his daughter, Ava, and wife, Amy. The Field Night event held in 2021 was a huge success, and DECA students wanted to continue to hold the event annually. As they were planning this year’s event, they learned of the Jones’ accident, and decided to dedicate this year’s Field Night to the Jones family.

HHS graduates, Liliana Wilson and Dalton Estes, have been heavily involved in the planning of this year’s event, along with coach Evans, the DECA coordinator for USD 308. Field Night will feature yard games, food trucks, a 5K walk, and other activities that are suitable for all ages. There will be a $5 entry fee for the event, and other opportunities to donate money in support of the Jones family.

“Last year, my students wanted to run a fun event to get kids ready for school. When I was injured, those students decided they wanted to make it a fundraiser to my family. When we were planning this year’s event, we debated on if we should do it for fun, or for a fundraiser. When we heard the news about the Jones family, we knew we wanted to do a similar fundraiser and raise funds for their family,” said Evans.

Local businesses have also partnered with the Field Night planning team to make the event possible. All money raised from the event will go to support the Jones family.
