Why I Give: Jenna Jackson

Jenna Jackson

Name: Jenna Jackson

Position: Associate Director of Admissions and Diversity, School of Law

At UGA: Five years

Beneficiary of her gift to the university: The 1961 Club

Why she contributes: “I give to The 1961 Club to pay homage to the revolutionaries who sacrificed their lives to fight the status quo in the United States so that in 1961, UGA would have to open its doors to two black students. This shifted the course of history and gave many black students, including myself, the opportunity to learn, grow and help elevate our communities.”
