          Jolly remained active and continued her community service as member of the Sophomore Class cabinet, and founder of the FAMU Elite Cheer & Dance Squad (presently the FAMU Elite Dance Squad).  While participating in a community service event during the winter break of her sophomore year, Jolly realized her true passion was working with children.  In the spring of 2004, Jolly graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education and received her certificate to teach kindergarten through sixth grade.
