SMCC’s Dr. Jerome Garrison Honored by Elevate Phoenix at Recent Suns Game
As part of Black History Month and in recognition of his efforts in supporting Elevate Phoenix, a local nonprofit which works to support the educational goals of teens and young people, South Mountain Community College faculty member and Division Chair Dr. Jerome Garrison was honored at the February 2 Phoenix Suns game.
Specifically, Dr. Garrison was noted for his work with Elevate’s R.I.S.E. program, which support at risk urban youth by introducing them to a variety of educational and cultural enrichment opportunities, as well as connecting them with financial aid and advisement resources.
Congratulations Dr. Garrison! And be sure to support Dr. Garrison and SMCC’s own efforts to raise funds for scholarships at the upcoming STARS Gala and Fundraiser on April 5, right here at SMCC!
