We are proud to congratulate Ja’Lynn on graduating from the University of Virginia!


The first in her family to attend and graduate college, she not only walked proudly across the stage, but also accepted the UVA School of Nursing Student Contributing Most to the University of Virginia award. Her mentor, Rose, watched beaming from her seat in the auditorium.


From elementary school onward, Ja’Lynn was supported by United Way – she learned to enjoy reading, studying, and excelling in school, and was encouraged to pursue her dreams. Now, Ja’Lynn continues to help others through serving overseas and in the inner city as a nurse. We wish you continued success!
