Come join us on Tuesday, Dec 2nd 11:30 am est as we talk with The Eligibility Coach, Marlynn Jones.
Marlynn R. Jones, Esquire is fiercely committed to guiding parents, high school coaches and guidance counselors to achieve admissions and eligibility certification for prospective collegiate student-athletes. Knowing that one simple mistake can turn a scholarship celebration into a frantic search for $15,000-$60,000 to finance the first year of college, Jones serves as a personal coach through the maze of legislation involved in acquiring an intercollegiate athletic scholarship. Bit by the journalism bug in high school when named a teen columnist for the Durham Morning Herald, Jones continued to develop her writing skills at the University of North Carolina's Journalism School, receiving her Bachelor's Degree, and at Virginia Commonwealth University's [VCU] Graduate School of Mass Communications. She was able to marry her love of journalism with her passion for sports as a graduate assistant in the Office of Sports Information at VCU while earning her Master's Degree. This position let to her first full-time job in athletics at the National Collegiate Athletic Association where she served as the first advertising manager for The NCAA News. After being named 1999 National Outstanding Law School Student of the Year while receiving her Juris Doctorate from the University of Miami, and working for five universities, the Orange Bowl Committee, and the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games, Jones has settled back home in Durham, NC, where she resides with her daughter Faith. Her company's blog is located at www.eligibilitycoach.com.
