In Their Own Words: Josh Jenkins

Rhema Thompson

This week marks a milestone for many high school seniors across Duval County: Graduation.

As schools around the district celebrate, we'll bring you the personal reflections on learning and growing in the district from a different graduate each day this week.

Monday was commencement day for the first graduating class of four-year-old Atlantic Coast High School.
Atlantic Coast senior Josh Jenkins shared his thoughts with WJCT's Rhema Thompson about being part of the inaugural class, the journey to graduation day and the future.

This story is part of American Graduate - a public media initiative made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to help local communities implement and identify solutions to address the high school dropout crisis.
