Armed with a Gates Millennium Scholarship from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Devin Jenkins could have attended any college in the country free of charge. He chose Miles College. "I was attracted by the Center of Academic Excllence and the oppurtunity of offers to study abroad," Jenkins said the attention he received from the faculty and staff was unprecedented. "They knew the students by name. I wanted a college where I could have that kind of relationship." Jenkins is in the Honors Program at Miles. He is also in the UNCF Pre-Alumni Club and is a campus ambassador. In just one semester, Jenkins said he has experiences and exposure that will benefit his college and professional career.
