We welcome back SSS and UTC alumna, Kenshandra Mitchell as our new graduate assistant for the 2015-2017 academic years. Kenshandra who is from Gallatin, Tennessee, is the first in her family to graduate from college. She graduated summa cum laude from UTC in May 2015 with a B.S. in Criminal Justice.

Kenshandra is entering her first year of graduate school pursuing a Masters of Criminal Justice, which she will complete in 2017. She plans to attend law school after receiving her Masters. Last year, she worked as a Criminal Justice and English tutor for student-athletes through UTC's athletic department.

Kenshandra is eager to help SSS students in any way she can. Having been an SSS participant as an undergraduate student, she knows how much the project staff and services can promote students academic success.
