Quincy N. Jones

Office seeking election: Second Vice President

  • Occupation: Real Estate Developer

Quincy N. Jones is a proud son of Dillard University.  Mr. Jones has been active in DUNAA consistently for the past six years.  He resided in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area from 2002 until 2010 where he participated in events and activities with Washington D.C. area alumni.  Upon leaving D.C. and returning to his hometown of Memphis,(TN), Mr. Jones worked with the alumni in Memphis to re-establish the DUNAA Memphis Chapter.  He served as the President of DUNAA Memphis from 2013 through 2017 and currently serves as the chapter's Financial Secretary.  

 

In addition to these activities, Mr. Jones has also served on various committees of DUNAA as an active participant and contributor.  Quincy holds a Master’s Degree in City and Regional Planning from The University of Memphis (2003) and a Bachelor of Arts in Urban Studies & Public Policy from Dillard University (1996).  He is also a proud member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated.

Special Skills: The ability to organize and lead.

 

Why I wish to serve: I wish to serve as the 2nd Vice President of the DUNAA because there is a growing need to strengthen the university through alumni support in all areas.  It is my belief that the role of the 2nd Vice President should work to grow the existing alumni chapters while simultaneously developing new chapters.  As our university's alumni giving rate nears 30%, the 2nd Vice President should identify alumni who are not currently active and participating in supporting Fair Dillard.  In order to implement these priorities, a conversation must begin with our fellow alums.  I am ready to begin and lead that discussion along with other elected DUNAA officers.
