Place of Origin: Stone Mountain, GA

      Spencer Jason is a skateboarder born and raised in Stone Mountain. A few of his favorite interests include the culinary arts, graffiti, street art, tattoos, fashion, all types of music from 60’s Nigerian jazz-funk to 90’s punk and hip-hop, to all things underground and today’s mainstream pop and rap. Jason would love to be able to give back to his DeKalb county community, especially by introducing what we have at technical colleges to elementary through high schools. More art and alternative learning programs should be available for parents and kids to pick from (software coding, PC/tech repair, videography, photography and even automotive repair and maintenance), which would expose our children to skills and trades they can use to build careers for themselves–a life after high school, outside of college.

What animal would you be, and why?

I would be a Bird of Prey, not only because they hunt in the air and water, but they’re some of the closest relatives to dinosaurs alive today.. Plus who wouldn’t want to fly. 

Fav. Quote: I for one believe that if you give people a thorough understanding of what confronts them and the basic causes that produce it, they’ll create their own program, and when the people create a program, you get action.”

Technical College, or nah?

Technical colleges also offer extremely practical and diverse areas of study not available at 4-year universities with degree programs. With flexible scheduling and tuition being economically friendly, it is almost a no-brainer as to why students and families should take a closer look at a technical college.
