About the Jack Fielkow Scholarship Program
The Jack Fielkow Scholarship Program was created in 2012 and is named after the late Jack Fielkow, the father of former New Orleans City Council President Arnie D. Fielkow. Jack was an avid sports enthusiast and had a great love for the City of New Orleans. The Jack Fielkow scholarship program will fund two,
$2,000 college scholarships annually, one awarded to a participant from the MLB Urban Youth Academy and one from the New Orleans-based mentoring
program, Each One Save One.
Arnie created the scholarship in honor of his father who was deeply committed to sports and children, and based on his experience with the organization, described Each One Save One as “the best mentoring organization in New Orleans”. Arnie’s continuing support of the mission of Each One Save One, is demonstrated by his service, as a former board member and mentor. Arnie’s dedication and guidance inspired his mentee, James, to fulfill his dream of becoming a chef. Arnie and James, now a parent himself, forged a long-lasting friendship and still consider each other family to this day.
Arnie played an instrumental role in the building of the MLB Urban Youth Academy in New Orleans as he served as the President of Minor League Baseball’s AA Southern League. Arnie also previously served as Executive Vice President of the NFL’s New Orleans Saints and is currently the President and CEO of the National Basketball Retired Players Association.
