Her previous roles include serving as vice president of student development at Cedar Valley College and vice president of student affairs at Henry Ford College.

β€œAs a first-generation, low-income, minority woman who came from an underperforming high school in Detroit, the odds were heavily stacked against me, but through my community college I was able to rewrite my story and achieve my American Dream,” said Jones. β€œThese institutions play a pivotal role in transforming lives and communities, and I am excited to become a part of this important work at CNCC.”
