We are pleased to announce that the Jackson State University Development Foundation, Inc., and BankPlus are proud presenters of “The Legacy Banquet”. The awards ceremony will be held on Friday, November 3, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. in the JSU Student Center Grand Ballroom. The purpose of the banquet is to honor our major donors who contributed $10,000 or more during the previous fiscal year: July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017. This year’s honorary chair is Mr. Bill Ray, President and CEO of BankPlus. Using the theme, “Honoring Our Past, Building Upon Our Legacy, and Celebrating the Spirit of Philanthropy,” this is a semi-formal event that provides an opportunity for sponsorship that best shows your support of JSU.

The gifts that are received by the JSU Development Foundation for “The Legacy Banquet” are tax-deductible (less the cost of the meal) and provide valuable financial funding to Jackson State, including program support and academic scholarships for students.  We hope you will join us in sponsoring this special event in honor of our major donors and would be delighted to have you join us at the banquet. For more information, contact Carolyn Palmer Johnson at (601) 979-2282.
