As a Student Success Advisor at South College, Sharesse Jones is committed to helping her students realize their full potential, working with them from the start of their classes through to their graduation ceremony.
Every day, Sharesse checks on students to ensure that they have everything they need. She makes sure they are satisfied with the classes and learning experience at South College, listens to any issues or concerns they have, and provides assistance and solutions for whatever comes up. Because of her guidance, each of her students understands what they need to do to graduate and how long each step and their entire program will take them.
“I enjoy guiding people through their choices—whether it’s picking classes or thinking through a career—and helping them reach that goal,” says Sharesse.
Sharesse has long been passionate about helping others. She came from the counseling field before entering the world of education and academic advising. She believes in the power of education to allow her students to become more well-rounded people and to improve themselves both professionally and personally.
“My purpose is to be a source of support for students to go to when they need anything or have any questions. They need to know they are not going through this blind or alone,” she says. “To ensure my students are successful, I help them to become aware of their capabilities and then provide the tools they need to achieve their goals.”
