Senior Profile: Amy Jacobs ’14

When Amy Jacobs ’14 was in high school, she took the initiative to start her own equestrian photography business. When she came to Randolph, she continued to show initiative by becoming involved in many leadership opportunities.

Jacobs, who will graduate magna cum laude on Sunday, has served on the Macon Activities Council for four years, and she was the organization’s president this year. She also studied abroad, completed internships, rode on the equestrian team, tutored business students, and gave tours of campus as a Gold Key Guide.

At the Academic and Leadership Awards ceremony this spring, Jacobs was honored with the Initiative Award, Student Volunteer Award, the Stan Marshall Award for Excellence in Business, and the Ambassador Award from the Admissions department.

“I was honored to be recognized by the various organizations to which I had given my time,” Jacobs said. “However, I know that my achievements would not have been possible without the overwhelming support of the Randolph College community.”

Jacobs plans to pursue a career in human resources, marketing, or event planning. Her work at Randolph makes her confident in her ability to succeed in any of those fields. “I look forward to graduation, and I’m excited about the challenges I will face beyond the red brick wall,” she said.
