At STCC, I've excelled on the basketball court, but more importantly, in the classroom.
Jamaal Gary reflects on his senior year in high school, “That’s when it all started to come together for me academically. Before that, my focus wasn’t there. I was on a bad path and I knew I either had to change my environment or my environment would change me. At STCC, I’ve excelled on the basketball court, but more importantly, in the classroom. Being named a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Academic All American recognized my hard work on and off the court. I’ll be attending ELMS College in the fall double-majoring in biology and chemistry. Two of my family’s friends are currently in medical school and that is my goal too. Whether I become an allergist or a cardiac surgeon, I know my future lies in medicine. I’m excited by the potential for innovation in the field and I want to help people improve the quality of their lives.”See all Success Stories
