2020 May Mag.




Jannifer Fisher Banks  ~ "I love Cerese D Jewelry and it has been an inspiration to me". I can truly say I am an ordinary human being with one passion on this side--pleasing my Lord and Savior. I am mother of two beautiful souls, son, Marshall Channing, 21, a student at Jackson State University, Jackson, MS and my daughter, Jannifer Katelin, 15, who is a sophomore at Vicksburg High School, Vicksburg, MS. I am the wife of a Retired Colonel, Marshall D. Banks and we have been married for 26 years. I enjoy my family, my church and my love for my job as a Guidance Counselor at Warren Central High School in Vicksburg, MS. My favorite thing about being a school counselor is that I can be there for students in their moment of need. I love being able to be the one that helps empower students to face their problems and grow as individuals. As counselors, we get to be there for students in crisis – and connect families with resources when they are in need. There is no greater feeling in the world than having a career that allows you to leave such a positive impact on so many people.

I am also a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, initiated in 1992 at Alcorn State University, Gamma Phi Chapter. I am proud to say I have over 25 years as an Alpha Woman and is a Life Member. God has blessed me with a gift through song. I have sung all over the states and has been invited to sing in several regional conferences (South Eastern) as well as Boule. I love the freedom of singing, it is the most natural form of expression. Each voice is unique, and to explore and use it, I think is very therapeutic for the soul. I am just an humble servant of God doing his will and his way. Love to all and I pray that we all are in good health in the weeks, months years to come. Blessings!
