DeSoto  High School Class of 2019 Alumna Jereigha Robinson is an upcoming first year law student at Howard University School of Law in Washington, DC.  She graduated from Texas Southern University (TSU) in 2021 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science minoring in Business Administration. Jereigha hopes to practice public interest or sports and entertainment law.

“My best memory of high school is the laughs and jokes my friends and I shared everyday,” Robinson shared.  

Enrolled in college classes while in High School, she learned some of the structure of higher education.  “The collegiate program taught me how to juggle multiple things at once including my social life, classes, and sports.”

While at TSU, she served on the Student Government Association as a Freshman.  “Student Government Association tested my leadership skills and allowed me to meet my peers at a fast rate,” she mused. “Whether you realize it or not, people are watching and will remember you. I've run into multiple staff from schools I've attended in the past that I wouldn't expect to remember me. Whether they have a positive memory or negative is up to you.”

Asked what advice she would give to current students:  “Don't follow the crowd. Your path may be different from everyone else's and that's okay!”

Jereigha Robinson is one to watch as she continues towards completion of her law degree.
