Jamaela Johnson

Leadership on campus: “I’ve helped establish our first NPHC (National Pan-Hellenic Council) sororities and fraternities and helped with getting resources and support for black students in the form of establishing a black student center on campus.”

Goals as a leader: “My goal in general is to leave a mark on this campus; something [that] I can come back to and feel like I was able to help. As far as goals for the present right now, I want to be able to leave that mark and right now it’s looking like the establishment of a black student center. And in the future, I want to encourage more women of color to harness their leadership abilities and to get involved on campus; do something where they are able to leave their mark on campus as well.”

Expected graduation term: Spring 2016
