Antaysia Baltimore

Antaysia Baltimore is a 2016 graduate of Jackson High. Wanting to go to college but not travel too far from home to start, she chose Jackson College.

“It’s helped me to transition and mature. I live on campus, where I can get a feeling of living on my own without going away from a long time,” she said.

Antaysia is studying social work and plans to transfer to Eastern Michigan University. Her college experience is great so far, and she’s a proud member of the dean’s list with a 3.6-grade point average.

While Jackson College offers her a great start, receiving scholarship help eases her financial costs. She received the Allegiance Hospital Scholarship and the NAACP Scholarship.

“It’s a lot of stress and weight off my shoulders,” she said. “It also helps me have everything I need to be successful. Without the scholarship, I wasn’t sure how I was going to pay for books and everything I need for academics.”
