Justin Holmes

Computer Science Major

Justin Holmes, college sophomore majoring in computer science, is a graduate from the Missouri Options program at the Jennings Educational Training School (JETS). Although Justin did not always make positive choices, in his third year of high school he developed a passion for computers and became determined to move his life in a positive direction. Not only did Justin work hard to graduate with his cohort class, but he took over the role of lead volunteer in the Jennings Pantry in the 2013-14 school year, serving over 120 hours of community service both during and after school. Recently Justin accepted a full scholarship to attend Harris Stowe State University through Emerson S.T.E.M. Scholarship. Justin is a young man with exceptional drive, leadership, communal distinction, and academic competence and we in the Jennings community are proud to claim his as one of our own.
