Election News

We are so proud of our recent graduate, Jennifer Bowles. She has just been elected to the Martinsville City Council, the youngest individual ever to have been chosen by that city's voters. Congratulations, Jennifer!

Last week, one of our majors, Jennifer Bowles, became the youngest person to win a city council seat in Martinsville, Virginia.  Bowles graduated this past May with a BA in African American and African Studies. 

Voters in Martinsville made history on Tuesday by electing the youngest person in recent memory to city council. Jennifer Bowles is 25 and her term doesn't start until next year but she's already making plans for improvements to her hometown.

A video link of her victory and her vision for her hometown is below.
