Meet the SGA President
Serving God and others, above all else, while bringing humility and joy to all situations is Jynae Jones’ mantra. Jynae hails from Palmdale, California, though she currently attends Miles College, in Fairfield, Alabama. She is the 2015-2016 President of the Miles College Student Government Association, Vice-President of Phenomenal Women, Junior Representative for the Honors Curriculum, a member of the United Negro College Fund, and a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. Jynae’s academic promise has allowed her to be selected as an academic coach with the Metacognition Lab on the Miles College campus. While serving in this capacity, Jynae assists students in the disciplines of Mathematics and English. Ms. Jones is also a mentor with Condoleezza Rice’s Program “Center for a New Generation” at the A.G. Gaston Boys and Girls Club in Birmingham, Alabama.
Jynae was also competitively selected as an academic scholar to participate in the Miles College Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence. Miles College is the only institution in the State of Alabama to have this stellar program that prepares students to have careers in the Intelligence Community. Ms. Jones has traveled domestically to Mac Dill Air Force Base for the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) in Tampa, Florida, where she was nominated as the most prepared student amongst colleagues. While attending this simulation, Jynae conducted briefings in front of generals and other dignitaries. Jynae also participated in a Study Abroad to Greece during the summer of 2015, where she conducted international research. During her travels, she visited seven different cities and conducted her research on the Greek economic turmoil while comparing it to the United States economy and their discrepancies.
My plans after graduation
Jynae found her passion for children while working with the Boys and Girls Club of America. Therefore, after graduation, Jynae plans to obtain her Masters in Business Administration and become an executive with the Boys and Girls Club of America. Lastly, she would like to work heavily with other non-profit organizations to better the lives of the less fortunate and help children in underprivileged neighborhoods excel.
