Elijah Jenkins, South Mountain High School Law Magnet student and graduate, was officially inducted into Howard University's School of Law with a pinning ceremony earlier this month. At barely 20 years-old, Jenkins is the youngest among the 150 incoming law student admitted to Howard's program this year. Jenkins graduated from Arizona State University with a 3.97 GPA, and received a merit scholarship to attend Howard University School of Law in Washington, D. C. He completed the first two years of college while attending South Mountain through the South Mountain Community College ACE Program, leaving only two years to complete at ASU. He also worked as an AVID Tutor at South Mountain High School over the past two years. Elijah Jenkins’ mother, Sandra Jenkins, is an ESS teacher at Betty H. Fairfax High School.
