When it was time for Jerri-Lynn Kincade ’15, a biomedical engineering graduate, to choose where she wanted to attend college, there was only one choice.
“I’m native to Tucson and I didn’t want to go somewhere else like ASU,” she says. “I wanted to stay here in Tucson so the UA was definitely my pick.”
She received a scholarship from the UA Black Alumni Club which supported Kincade throughout her UA career. “It’s really a family community. They helped and supported me a lot over the years and reminded me to invest in and support other youth just like they invested in me.”
