This is in promotion of our social media campaign to bring awareness and support the excellence of historically black colleges and universities.

This Tuesday (6/2/15), we highlighted Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins, Sr., (pictured on the right), President of Livingstone College.

Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins, Sr., who is a longtime educator and administrator was named the 12th president of Livingstone College on February 8, 2006. Dr. Jenkins earned a Bachelors degree in Biology from Elizabeth City State University, his teaching certification in Biology and a Masters degree from Howard University, and a Doctorate degree in Biology Education from Purdue University.

Dr. Jenkins served as president of Edward Waters College in Jacksonville, Florida from 1997 to 2005. During his tenure, the college expanded its faculty and broke ground on its first new building in decades while reducing its debt from $8.5 million to $500,000 in three years and growing its enrollment from 300 to 1,300 students. Recently, Edward Waters named the new building after Dr. Jenkins as a tribute to the tremendous progress under his leadership.

Prior to his tenure at Edward Waters College, Dr. Jenkins served as chancellor of Elizabeth City State University from 1977 to 1995, becoming the first alumnus to serve as its Chief Executive Officer. During his tenure at ECSU, he secured the support of the State Legislature of North Carolina for construction of six major buildings on campus. He also launched a $5 million capital campaign, completing the fundraising a year ahead of schedule. He was honored to have the than newly constructed Science Building named in his honor.

He is married to Dr. Faleese Moore-Jenkins, and they have three children, Dr. Lisa Lopez, Attorney Ginger Cartwright and Jimmy Jr., a graphic artist and college lecturer.
