Class of ’97 - Executive Director

Jevonya Jenkins Allen ’97 has been the Executive Director since November 2018.

Jevonya recalls her time at Classical as being challenging yet memorable. Initially, Jevonya did not desire to attend Classical. She did not believe that she was would pass the entrance exam. Her true desire was to attend Mount Pleasant’s Teachers Academy. Jevonya was accepted to both programs and she chose Classical because her two best friends were going to Classical.

Sadly, in 10th grade, both of her friends made decisions that impacted many lives. One decided to drop out and the other committed suicide. Jevonya states that her time at Classical was quite traumatic but she was able to make it through. Jevonya appreciates the education that she received, and she believes that Classical laid the groundwork for her future academic and professional success.

Post Classical, Jevonya attended the Talent Development program at URI and then she enrolled in an online program with the University of Phoenix.
