Jennifer Buckner

Jennifer Buckner is a junior Health Science major and pre-physicians assistant from Columbia Tennessee. She is part of Crossover, Life423, Tri-Beta (Biology Honors Society), and Alpha Phi Delta (Medical Honors Society). She came to Lee Day and Frontlines while in high school and “knew Lee was where the Lord wanted me to be.” The best part of her Lee experience has been the relationships she’s forged with her peers and professors. “The professors care about each student individually and have poured into my life,” said Jennifer. “The people I have met through residential life and clubs have become my biggest encouragers and also have been right there on my walk with Christ.” After graduation, she plans to become a certified physicians assistant and work in an emergency room setting.
