Trevor Jones with Rep. Ronald DellumsThe Philosophies of Trevor Jones '16

At the start of our virtual interview, Trevor Jones (‘16) gives me a brief tour of one special wall in his suburban Maryland apartment. “Here’s me with Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the congressional baseball game,” Jones beams as he points to the photograph. “And this one’s with Mr. Dellums, the former mayor of Oakland and the first African-American to chair the Armed Services Committee in Congress.” Immediately I get a sense of the pride he feels ­ about his connections to these icons on his wall and in being asked to do this interview. He’s a humble man with a giving heart: “Growing up, everything for me has always been rooted in service. I’m always looking for ways to make things better.” 

Jones’ interest in policy took off while studying under Dr. Marguerite Archie-Hudson, a political science professor at CofC and a former member of the California State Legislature. Dr. Archie-Hudson’s classes inspired him toward wanting to experience D.C. politics firsthand. Since he had most of his undergraduate coursework completed, Jones decided to make that dream come true. All he needed was the opportunity to make it happen.
