Jerusalem has a 3.7 GPA and plans to major in business and marketing in college. She would like to attend Rice University.
Jerusalem is part of the school marching band and plays the mellophone. She is thriving at Clarkston because of the support she receives from her school counselors and administrators, and the student diversity at school allows her understand and embrace their differences, and it has made this big world seem smaller.
