Quinton Couch's Journey

photo of Quinton CouchQuinton Couch, a 2017 Miami grad who majored in diplomacy and global politics, joined his friends Jackson Gray and Tyler Brezina to travel the full length of the Ohio River via canoe and kayak as part of an effort to raise awareness and funds for suicide prevention.

After graduating from Miami, Quinton completed a fellowship through Chicago Votes, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, in which he led a service-learning project at a Chicago high school.
