Parkland student Anthony Jones dreams of running nonprofit organizations as well as his own counseling practice, Social Work major Anthony isn’t waiting to earn his degree before making a difference in others’ lives.

The Milan, Illinois, native and several other Parkland College students take time out of their academic schedules to speak heart-to-heart with at-risk middle and high school students on the benefits of college, part of a think-tank group they have formed called Great Minds. They also talk with youngsters about the benefits of choosing Parkland.

“Some people think there are better places in the world, but there aren’t; Parkland breeds superstars if you let them mold you,” Anthony says. “I appreciate the faculty and their willingness to help. People here are committed to a high standard of excellence, 100 percent of the time.”
