PA Student
Class of 2021

Hometown: Marion, S.C.


Marquis graduated from Coastal Carolina University in 2016. He majored in biology and minored in chemistry. After graduating, Marquis worked at Carolinas Hospital System.

He first decided to become a PA after meeting one during high school football. The PA provided affordable physicals to the high school students, which Marquis thought was admirable.

Marquis learned of the PC PA program from a connection at the Presbyterian Pharmacy program.

“I chose Presbyterian’s PA program because of its commitment to service and believing that its location between Greenville and Spartanburg would give me a variety of practical experience,” he said.

Marquis is a sports car enthusiast and loves watching Netflix and working out.
