Jeffery Ruff :A Classic Man

This interview mean a great lot to me. This interview is about one of the most purest souls to reside at The University By The Sea. Very rarely do you find human beings who are kind, honest, encouraging, God fearing, and have a pure heart, at Savannah State University there is an exception to the rule: Jeffery Ruff. Jeffery is one of Savannah States most treasured gifts. He touches everyone he comes in contact with in the most kindest way. He is a great example of the type of people Savannah State shapes, molds, and creates. this is one of my favorite interviews because he has been a great supporter of Her Campus  Savannah and the members within our chapter. We were honored to do an interview.

Hi, My name is Otissia McKinnon. I was born and raised in South Georgia and now I currently attend Savannah State University as a Social Work Major. Helping those who are unable to help themselves is my passion and I intend on making it my life's work. I thoroughly enjoy writing, editing, building and branding social media content. My future plans are to build a women's organization that not only empowers the youngest of hearts but encourages girls as they grow older to be the most loving and successful versions of themselves they can be.
