- Marketing grad returns to classroom, playing field
Jenkins’ story is not the typical tale of a student returning to change his major or work on a graduate degree. Instead, Jenkins’ desire to return to school is motivated by a long-held love – football.
Jenkins graduated from Southern Arkansas University with a degree in marketing in December 2014. He was also the starting running back for the Mulerider football team.
However, after graduating and taking his first “real job,” Jenkins had one semester of eligibility remaining as a student-athlete. He plans to use that this fall for the Muleriders.
