Terrence J gave back to his alma mater in a major way. The E! News co-anchor donated a $100,000 endowment fund to his school North Carolina A&T State University which will benefit the institution’s journalism and mass communication department.
In a press release, the former 106 & Park host described his elated feelings on his latest efforts for his HBCU. “I am truly humbled to return to my alma mater and be in a position to give back to the same department and University that helped steer me on this incredibly rewarding career path,” he said. “I’m inspired by the great work that NBCUniversal has contributed to N.C. A&T State and I am thankful to be able to work together with them on these important programs.”
Those programs that Jenkins referenced will include various workshops to provide students with professional development in the media industry and a path to place graduates directly into careers within the media realm.
Recently, the Emmy nominee also partnered with the National Park Service as a Centennial Ambassador. His mission with the organization is to preserve national parks and motivate people to visit as a means to gain that “outdoor experience.”
