Jacarri, today’s recipient of our Hercules Scholarship, aspires to become an entrepreneur. He offers his leadership ability as vice president of both the Student Government Association and Lane College’s chapter of the NAACP.
Despite his dedication to his school and leadership work, Jacarri balances it with basketball and performing in talent showcases at Lane.
Jacarri doesn’t take all of the credit for his accomplishments. His mother and stepmother are the most influential people in his life. Despite her Huntington’s Disease diagnosis, Jacarri’s mother has kept a positive mindset and his stepmother helps take care of his mother.
Jacarri lives by the words of his father: “Do everything right the first time” and “If you really want to accomplish something, you must dedicate yourself.”
