Dear Jackson State Family:

Congratulations on the successful culmination of another academic year! 

Dr. Carolyn Meyers, president of Jackson State University

Each of you should be rightly proud of this and other noteworthy accomplishments during the academic year.  I know these are the results of your hard work and love for Jackson State.

The first graduations during my tenure went off smoothly and most importantly, the graduates and their families seemed pleased and excited.  Special thanks are extended to Dr. Williams and Dr. Okojie for presiding, Dr. Maddirala  and Mr. Jackson who handed to me over 1200 diploma jackets without a hitch, Mrs. Frazier and the Events staff for all of their efforts and Dr. Johnson who stepped in effortlessly wherever needed.  Also please join me in expressing appreciation to Dr. Bettye Graves and her committee as well as to all of the participants in the two exercises for their planning, coordination, and execution during the events.  Many, many thanks to everyone!

I am excited to share with you the generous commitment made on Friday night by the Golden Class, the Class of 1961.  Please remember to thank all members of that class who you know.  Gifts such as these enable the University to continue its legacy of excellence in all that we do.

Also I just learned that the JSU softball team won the SWAC Championship today. I am sure you join me in being proud of them.

Last, on this special day, to all mothers and to all of those who exhibit a mother’s love, I hope that your day has been filled with joy and happy memories!

God bless Jackson State University!

Carolyn W. Meyers
