Givaughn Jones


Givaughn Jones is excited to be back in school at MassBay Community College, pursuing his associate’s degree. The 19-year-old Dorchester student graduated from Boston’s Media Communications Technology High School in 2011 and planned to attend Roxbury Community College. But, unable to make his first tuition payment, he was forced to abandon that plan. During a year away from school, he spent time volunteering at his local Boys & Girls Club. This made him aspire to run his own nonprofit organization someday, “to give back to the community and be a positive role model for the youth.” Givaughn, who received a Determination Award from the Boston Scholar Athlete program and served as his high school’s varsity basketball team captain, also loves basketball and hopes to continue playing in college and beyond
