MIFA’s Something Good in Memphis campaign is designed to celebrate those who make Memphis better, whether it’s the stranger who helps change your flat tire in the rain or a human services pioneer who changes the lives of a hundred poor Memphians. Sometimes people tend to focus on the bad and forget the good, but we see reminders of the good in Memphis every day!

Clinton Knox III is Young & Educated


Clinton Knox III is a a young achiever dedicated to consistency and hard work. There is no such phrase as "I give up," in this young achiever’s vocabulary. He was born and raised here in Memphis, TN. He attended Memphis Central High School, and is now a sophomore at Middle Tennessee State University. At MTSU he is involved with Collegiate 100, and he is currently the Student Government Association Freshman Council President. He also received the Freshman of The Year award for Middle Tennessee State University. Clinton receives positive feedback all the time, but he feels as if there should be more young people inheriting positive praise, other than himself. So he has taken the initiative in starting a premier organization to support and encourage the thinking individual. He calls the organization The Young & Educated. This organization allows him to eagerly help and lead individuals towards their dreams. You may gain more knowledge about it at Clinton is a very good role model for the youth in Memphis, TN. I think he really deserves recognition for making a difference in our society. Thank you. Nominated by Leonard Brown.
