BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Aug. 18, 2022) - Jean Marie Jenkins, a former student-athlete and recent graduate of Texas A&M University, has been named the Edward Aschoff Southeastern Conference Digital Communications intern, it was announced Thursday by SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey.

Jenkins joins the SEC staff after she was co-founder and marketing and social media content creator for Texas A&M's B.L.U.E.print (Black Leaders who Undertake Excellence), the school's first black student-athlete-led organization. She also assisted in the creation of promotional content and video production for 12th Man Productions. Jenkins graduated from Texas A&M earlier this year with a degree in sport management and a minor in business.

Jenkins, a native of Houston, Texas, was a member of the Aggies' nationally-ranked women's track and field team. She also served on the Texas A&M Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).

The SEC introduced an internship in communications in honor of the late Edward Aschoff, a reporter for ESPN and graduate of the University of Florida, who died in December 2019 at the age of 34. The Edward Aschoff SEC Digital Communications Intern works in partnership with the Southeastern Conference and ESPN's digital content team at the SEC Network.

The SEC Digital Communications Intern is responsible for publishing content to the conference's official website, and performs editorial production duties in written, graphical and multimedia content, as well as data management and quality control of various administrative elements on the platform.
