Other Information:Jacqueline’s short term goal is to become a Legal Secretary and later a full time accountant. She plans to attend college while playing sports and pursuing a masters degree in business. Someday she would like to open her own accounting agency. She says “I feel that being elected on the Greater Flint Afro-American Hall of Fame would be one of the greatest things that could ever happen to a young black lady, who is as enthusiastic about black achievers and sports the way I am. I feel that if a young lady or young man accomplishes this position they should be obligated to set a good example before their peers, instead of defaulting their position. They should be willing and ready to do whatever it takes to make the Flint schools the most prominent and competitive school district in the state.”
