When a curious sophomore athlete from Houston, Texas appeared at Thompson's boathouse in the fall of 1985, Georgetown women's rowing was ready to take another major step forward. Kelley Jones' life was about to change dramatically as well. A year in the novice boat and many ergs and stairs later, her prowess on the river soon caught up to her more experienced teammates.

As a junior, her undefeated squad captured a gold medal at the Dad Vail Regatta. In her final year, she and her Hoya teammates took home a gold medal in an open four at the U.S. national collegiate rowing championships and she was named most valuable member of the Georgetown crew.

Majoring in fine arts, she received the Thomas Graham medal, presented annually to the senior athlete who demonstrates academic achievement, sportsmanship, and commitment to the educational and spiritual goals of Georgetown. Kelley went on to row for the U.S. national team from 1989-1992, capping her international career by participating in the 1992 Olympic Games in Banyoles, Spain.

In recognition of her numerous achievements and her outstanding contribution
to Georgetown crew, the name

Kelley Jones, C'88

is permanently inscribed in the Georgetown University Athletic Hall of Fame
among the names of the greatest athletes in the history of the University.

Given this day, the fourth of February, in the year of 2006.<
