Joe Ingram III & Jaylynne Likely: Two CSW 2020 Alumni to Watch

Congratulations to CSW alumni Joe Ingram III & Jaylynne Likely—both were named “graduate students to watch” by OSU’s Office of Student Life and graduated this spring.
Originally from Youngstown, Joe Ingram III has a great passion and desire to serve others, evident through his many mentorship roles and internship with LiFESports. Joe has inspired many through his leadership as co-chair for OSU Reads of the African American Heritage Festival, president of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. (Kappa Chapter), and co-founder of Men With Purpose, a student organization to mentor first-generation, underrepresented male students in their transition phase from high school to college. Joe has also worked with the Young Scholarship Program, Department of Social Change to develop curriculum that addresses the needs of Linden and Near Eastside youth, and the Young Scholars Program of which he is also a recipient. Post-graduation, Joe plans to continue working with student-athletes and underrepresented populations.
Jaylynne Likely was a student in the college’s ASAP program focusing on mental health and substance abuse. Upon being accepted, Jaylynne received the Early Offer Inclusive Excellence Fellowship award which acknowledged her well-deserved scholarly achievements. As a change agent, she is a proven leader selected to attend an OSU signature event, “Buckeye Dinner of 12,” which paired six alumni with six students to create lasting relationships as well as the college’s Washington, D.C. Advocacy Trip. Originally from Memphis, Tennessee, Jaylynne completed her field practicum at the Department of Veteran Affairs on the acute care and hospice unit where she was offered a stipend to support her professionals goals. She plans to work in the community for two years then complete her doctorate in social work in advanced clinical practice, administration and leadership.
