Having a background in mental health counseling has equipped Sierra Jones with the tools needed to help students navigate the ups and downs of college life. Her job is to make sure that every student who steps foot on campus has a strong foundation from which to build their future. Sierra finds fulfillment in her role by seeing her students evolve to become their whole selves while working toward their passions.

How do you help students?

I assist students who are transitioning into our campus community and into the college classroom. With the First-Year TRAC programs, we work to set up new, first-year students for success in a variety of ways through peer-to-peer leadership and creating co-curricular experiences that students can carry with them beyond their first few classes.

A Conversation with Sierra Jones

What would you tell a student who is thinking about attending A&M-Commerce?

Make your mark here! Our campus has space for you to grow, showcase your leadership, and excel. Look for opportunities to strengthen yourself, whether that be in the classroom with our fantastic faculty or outside the classroom with the amazing organizations and events that we have at A&M-Commerce. Come be a part of our campus family.

What do you like most about your career?

I enjoy seeing people emerge into their full selves. In my education, I focused on developing others, and getting to use those skills daily with the students I interact with has been very rewarding. While it’s always bittersweet to watch students graduate, I'm so excited for their future and to get to see all that they continue to accomplish. Being a small piece of their experience is a great honor.
