Hailing from the Red Clay Hills region of Mississippi, University of Mississippi sophomore Luke Jenkins is an avid sports fan and lover of life. A former musician and baseball player, Jenkins is now pursuing his undergraduate degrees in Journalism and Geological Engineering. An active member in Chi Psi fraternity and a member of the Sally McDonnell-Barksdale Honors College, Jenkins loves to have a grand time but understands that his studies are the most important thing.
Jenkins is from Oxford, MS and took his sweet time deciding on where to attend college. He loves Oxford and cares about the community. He is a member at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Oxford and is a regular volunteer helper at The Scott Center, the school for special needs in the Oxford School District.
As a lifelong stutterer, Jenkins has never allowed his speech handicap to impinge his desire to be a journalist. Now, with a goal to work in the oil industry and edit/write for a technical magazine, Jenkins is avidly pursuing both of his degrees.
The younger of two children, Jenkins is the son of Chuck and Sherry. Sherry runs a homeless ministry in Oxford and Chuck is a computer consultant for major oil companies. His brother, CJ, is currently working on attaining his PhD in Civil Engineering from Johns Hopkins University. Jenkins believes that his most cherished possession in life is the relationships he has made with the special campers at the special needs camp he volunteers at.
