Coming out of high school, Jenkins enlisted in the Marines in 2014. But once he got through his intense initial year of training, he began to think about going further in school. His next step was clear, thanks to Sinclair’s earlier support. He could see in his own household the value of a Sinclair degree, as his mom earned hers and turned it into a career as a project analyst with CareSource. Plus, as a Young Scholars student, Jenkins benefits from that program’s “Last Dollar” guarantee, a feature which covers any of his college expenses not met by other financial aid.
