Sandra Jenkins is a straightforward, goal-oriented person who has reaped tremendous rewards as a result of hard work and a continued commitment to excellence.

Being named the new site director for Brewton-Parker College’s Liberty Campus gives Jenkins the opportunity not only to apply her strong work ethic but to also bring a fresh, new perspective to Hinesville that will serve to reinforce an already strong foundation.

“ I am very impressed with Sandra Jenkins,” said Dr. David Smith, president of Brewton-Parker. “I believe that our campus in Hinesville is in good hands with her leadership of it. She brings an understanding of the community, a tenacity for success, and a heart for students. All of these are keys for success in this program.”

Brad Kissell, executive dean for Enrollment Services at BPC, said that Jenkins brings a strong commitment to providing educational leadership along with a desire to support the Hinesville/Liberty County community.

“The college’s first desire was to find a qualified person who has a passion for the surrounding community and who has the vision to lead our Liberty County campus,” said Kissell.

“She brings a vision to continue to build quality educational opportunities for traditional and adult learners. She also brings a service oriented attitude that will strengthen the campus’ student support systems for our current and future students,” said Kissell. “What excites me the most is her impressive skill sets in working with community leaders in a collaborate environment. I am glad to have Mrs. Jenkins as our site director.”

A native of Early County, Jenkins graduated from Georgia Southern in 1996 with a degree in psychology. She then began her graduate work at GSU concentrating in the field of education. This December, it is anticipated she will receive her doctorate degree in Education Administration.

Receiving a doctorate degree is a great accomplishment for any student willing to devote extra years of college work in order to meet their educational goals. For Jenkins, receiving the degree this December carries even more of a special meaning for her and her family.

Jenkins’ father, Wilmur Mosley, passed away during her senior year in high school leaving her mother as the sole provider for the family. Even though the family was still reeling from Mr. Mosley’s death, Jenkins’ mother, Mrs. Clattie Coleman, was still committed to Jenkins receiving a college education.

With her mother’s support, Jenkins enrolled at Georgia Southern but knew she had to do her part if she wanted see her dream become a reality.

“While I was at Georgia Southern, I did not really participate in any organized activities, preferring to work and help with expenses,” Jenkins remembers.

Jenkins’ hard work both inside and outside the classroom not only allowed her to achieve her dream, but also laid a foundation of hard work and determination that has served her well in the workplace.

For the past two years, Jenkins has been the director of Liberty County Family Connection (LCFC), a statewide grassroots organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and families. Founded in 1991, the Family Connection Partnership now has collaborative organizations in all but five of Georgia’s counties.

When Jenkins found out about the position at BPC’s Liberty Campus, she realized it would allow her the opportunity to use the skills she acquired as a graduate student. She is thrilled with the chance to be able to lead the campus in Hinesville.

“This position is ideal for me,” said Jenkins. “It gives me an opportunity to use the training I have received in Education Administration and provides me with a chance to work with students, staff, and faculty at the Liberty Campus on a variety of issues. The small campus size is intimate and allows for a lot of hands on interaction.”

Although still fairly new to the position, Jenkins already has a goal in place that will take the Liberty Campus to the next level.

“My ultimate goal for the Liberty Campus is to make Brewton-Parker College a household name in Liberty County that is associated with academic excellence and a student-centered staff,” said Jenkins.

Jenkins and her husband Sam reside in Hinesville and are expecting their first child December 17th.
