MILLENNIALS WORK TO INCREASE LOCAL COLLEGE ATTAINMENT RATES

We often assume young men, fresh out of college, are focused on money and women. This is hardly the case for Jeremy Calhoun and Alton Cryer — Memphis natives who are busy ensuring more young people complete college.

Still in their twenties, these young men have already contributed more to the Memphis community than many folks twice their age. They founded Setting the Standard (STS) Enterprise, a nonprofit providing leadership and mentorship for teens and college students.

On April 13, they’re hosting a networking event for college students to meet Memphis leaders. Learn more at stsenterprise.org.
