The Shannon Smith McCants
The Shannon Smith McCants Memorial Scholarship was established by the Jacksonville Chapter of Jack & Jill of America, Inc.’’’ to assist deserving local Jacksonville graduating seniors who are pursuing a degree in pharmacy at Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University. A mother of two children (Derrick II and Sandra), wife to Derrick, and pharmacy manager, Shannon joined the Jacksonville Chapter of Jack & Jill of America as a Legacy member of the Mobile, Alabama chapter on March 14, 2004 and served as an active and committed leader of the organization.
Shannon Smith McCants graduated from Florida A & M with a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy in 1991.
