Student Success Stories

Jared Torres

Jared-Torres-Jacobsons

County: Broward

In the 6th grade, Jared Torres participated in the Annual Rally in Tally, an annual student event in Tallahassee. Traveling with other students from Broward County, Jared toured the State Capitol and met with Government leaders. It was during these meetings that Jared developed his interest in working in State Government and serving the public. Being awarded a Take Stock in Children scholarship gave him the resources he needed to go to college and make this dream a reality. He was paired with his mentor, Judy Jacobson, a long-time volunteer and leader with the Broward county program. Judy helped Jared develop the skills necessary to get good grades, succeed in college and begin a career path in Government. Jared excelled in high school serving as a student body president. He attended Florida Atlantic University where he became active in Student Government and was the president of his fraternity. He received his bachelors in political science and pre-law with a minor in communication. Today Jared works at our State Capitol in Tallahassee doing legislative affairs. He also serves as the President of the Take Stock in Children Alumni Alliance.
