FAMU Student Featured in the College Preview

TALLAHASEE, Fla. – Amari Jones, 19, a third year environmental science student at Florida A&M University (FAMU), was featured in the College Preview magazine.

The article “Saving our Planet” examined the opportunities for environmental scientists, highlighted the variation of salaries and focused on several students, who are vastly excelling in science programs.

Jones, a native of Houston, Texas, expressed her passion for making a difference. “I chose my major after Hurricane Katrina,” said Jones. “When I traveled with FAMU to help, I saw the real impact.”

Since Jones’ initial visit to Louisiana, she completed her tour in five trips to help rebuild homes.

Jones plans to complete her master’s degree in meteorology. One of Jones goals is to research ways to advance the prediction of storms.

Despite her accomplishments, Jones remains humble.

“It is a great honor, especially being an African American,” said Jones. “Not many minorities are featured in a magazine regarding environmental science.

Jones wants to work with other scientists and conduct individual research.

Although Jones has worked hard in her studies, she credits FAMU for instilling professional development into its students.

“FAMU taught me how to better myself, how to interact with people and prepared me for the real world,” said Jones.

College Preview is a publication that targets college-bound juniors and seniors.
