Jeraline Jones-Marsh

Dr. Jeraline Jones-Marsh says Alabama State University provided her with a solid educational foundation that has helped her build a 20-year career with the Palm Beach County School District (Fla.).

Jones-Marsh graduated from ASU in 1993 with a Bachelor of Science degree in business education. She currently is a district administrator/career education specialist for Palm Beach County Schools, where she supports the Criminal Justice Academy teachers with curriculum and instruction, works with local colleges and universities to develop articulation agreements and oversees all Career Pathways initiatives.

She also works as an adjunct professor in the Graduate Counseling Psychology program at Palm Beach Atlantic University, and she is a senior consultant for The Center for Occupational Research and Development.

“I’m a well-educated educator; I owe my foundation to ASU,” Jones-Marsh said. “ASU taught me what I needed to know from the books, but also about life and how to be a professional.”

Growing up in Marion, Ala., the birthplace of ASU, Jones-Marsh was introduced to the University by her mentor, Rosie Kynard, who also is an ASU alumna.

“She (Kynard) was a huge influence on many students from my hometown and helped us all get into ASU, especially those of us who did not have parents who had been college educated and were unsure of the process,” Jones-Marsh said.

While attending ASU, Jones-Marsh became a member of the Beta Eta Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc.

After graduating from ASU, Jones-Marsh went on to earn a  Master of Science degree in counseling psychology from Palm Beach Atlantic University  (‘97) and a Doctor of Education degree in education leadership from Nova Southeastern University (‘06).

Jones-Marsh says that she is proud of the direction ASU headed, especially after returning to campus with her son during the 2012 Turkey Day Classic.

“I was very proud of ASU this past homecoming. I brought my son with me and he thought the campus was really cool; so did I,” she said. “The campus has just the right amount of updates, physical buildings as well as new degree programs, but still maintains a historic flair.”
