Full Morris Scholarship Recipient - Quinton JenkinsQuentinJenkins

Quinton Jenkins was born in South Carolina but attended middle and high school in Carlisle, Iowa. Recently, Quinton graduated Magna Cum Laude from Morehouse College with a Bachelor degree in Biology and a minor in Public Health. Alongside graduating college with honors, Quinton was also extended membership into Phi Beta Kappa Society. Immediately after graduating Quinton began participating in the University of Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research (MICHR) Summer Research Program. In the fall, Quinton will continue his education at The University of Michigan School of Public Health. Quinton explains that “The James B. Morris Scholarship Foundation allowed me to focus on my academics and volunteerism. I am still honored that the Foundation continued to support me financially as a Full Scholar even though I was far from home. Your love and support never went unnoticed and I thank God often for allowing me to grow and mature with the support of the James B. Morris Foundation.”
