The Clemson University Young Alumni Council (YAC) has recognized Jamilah Frazier of North Charleston as one of its 2016 “Roaring 10” – young alumni who have made an impact in business, leadership, community, educational and/or philanthropic endeavors.
Honorees were selected based on their continued efforts to uphold the university’s core values of honesty, integrity and respect and to demonstrate an “ever-loyal” relationship with Clemson University.
Frazier received her master’s degree in public administration from Clemson in 2015 and works at Charleston/Dorchester Mental Health, where she coordinates accreditation and quality improvement. She also owns her own business providing workplace CPR and first aid training.
She volunteers for several local organizations, including Bridges of SC (formerly Hospice of Charleston), the Charleston Area Justice Ministry, the YWCA and the Charleston chapter of Jack & Jill.
She maintains her ties to Clemson as an advisory member of the Charleston County Clemson Club, previously volunteered for Tigertown Bound receptions and worked with Clemson’s admissions office to recruit alumni for Clemson events in the area.
In 2015, she helped the Clemson Black Alumni Council coordinate the Clemson Minority Students Success Initiative Homecoming Panel Discussion/Networking Event in partnership with the Clemson Master of Public Administration Program and Clemson Online.
The primary mission of Clemson YAC is to support the goals of the Clemson Alumni Association specifically on matters pertaining to Young Alumni. Clemson YAC exists to connect Young Alumni with the University, assist Young Alumni in the transition from active student to alumnus, facilitate fellowship, personal growth and professional development opportunities for young alumni and formally represent Young Alumni interests to the Clemson Alumni Council. The purpose of these efforts is to affect seminal influence on young alumni so they may continue to be connected and contributing alumni for a better Clemson throughout their lives.
