Desmond lost his life in a senseless act of violence and he was on the cusp of starting college to study criminal justice and continue his basketball career. Desmond had a light and so many loved him and wanted to be around him. He knew how to motivate others through laughter, fun and competitiveness. To continue Desmond’s love for sports and helping others; we created the Desmond Jenkins Student Athlete College Scholarship Fund. The scholarship will be awarded annually to select Sanderson High School students who are accepted into College and participating in College level sports with a household annual income of $55K or less. Please support the scholarship and help provide financial resources for other students to pursue their education and athletic dreams!
