Marquél Jeffries, a proud representative of the Buffalo Prep class of 2011, graduated from
St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute in 2015. After obtaining his high school diploma, he attended SUNY Oswego to pursue a bachelors degree in broadcasting/mass communications, which he received
in May 2019. Of all the positions he held during his time at SUNY Oswego, the most impactful one was being the Director of Diversity and Inclusion for the student government. This position allowed him to be a prominent voice for underrepresented students and to work with administrators on initiatives to promote a more welcoming community on campus and within the city of Oswego.
Since graduating college, Marquél has spent time traveling, enjoying quality time with loved ones, and working on music. During the month of September, he began touring with Griselda Records, a Buffalo-bred rap group who recently signed a management deal with Roc Nation. Some of the cities on the tour include Miami, Atlanta, and Dallas. After the tour concludes, he plans on relocating to Nashville to put his degree to use while maintaining his music career.
He advises “the rising kings and queens of Buffalo Prep: follow your heart, keep faith, and remain true to your morals. Never allow anyone to sway you away from the path that’s designated for you. It’ll all work out!”
