Mr. Prairie View A&M University 2016 – 2017
Ravez M. Jones is a senior headed into his fourth year here at The Prairie View A&M University. He is currently studying Mechanical Engineering in the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering, with a minor in Biology. He is the son of Shamika Garrett and Ronald & Damita Jones Jr. He is originally from Kansas City, Missouri but moved to Arlington, Texas, where he graduated with honors from Mansfield Summit High School. Ravez is a proud Prairie View Panther who has remained active on campus through his various involvements in different collegiate organizations. However, he has not allowed his extracurricular activities to negatively affect his academics. He has been able to remain an active leader on campus while maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.62. Ravez is also a member of the Prairie View A&M University’s Honors Program, and he has been so since his arrival to campus his freshman year. Through his membership with the Honors Program, Ravez was able to spend 7 weeks during the 2014 summer studying abroad. He studied the Chinese language and culture abroad at Xi’an International Studies Institute in Xi’an, China. On the hill Ravez has gained several leadership positions. Within Prairie View A&M’s chapter in The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) Ravez has served as Vice President of the Freshman Executive Board in 2013-2014, C.E.O. Representative from 2014-2015, Chapter Executive Board Member from 2015-2016, and will serve as the Chapter Vice President for the 2016-2017 academic year. Ravez is also a proud member of B.L.A.C.K., Brothers Leading and Cultivating Knowledge, a community service organization that does a lot of work for the community, university, and President George C. Wright. Ravez is also a member of Prairie View’s Student Government Association (SGA), where he served as a Senator for the College of Engineering for 2015-2016 and will serve as a Senator for University Housing this upcoming year. Ravez has also been a Supplemental Instructor, tutor, for the College of Engineering and will continue this role as well. After he graduates from The Prairie View A&M University, Ravez plans to attend graduate school and pursue dual master’s degrees in Biomedical Engineering and a MBA. Ravez is honored to now serve this campus as Mr. Prairie View A&M University 2016-2017. He plans to use his platform of “SUCCESS” to encourage and motivate his fellow panthers to achieve success, not only in the classroom but outside as well. He also plans to inspire students to achieve success after graduation by hosted helpful and intriguing seminars with accomplished alumni. Lastly, Ravez plans to go on a path with his fellow panthers to understand the true meaning of a successful life. One not defined by monetary value and stature, but by productivity, service, and leaving a positive and meaningful impact on this world for generations to come.
I am thankful to be able to represent this university.
See you on “The Hill”!
Mr. Prairie View A&M University 2016– 2017
