I would like to thank the entire campus community for sharing in a wonderful inauguration celebration March 28-30. The inauguration events showcased all things wonderful about Jackson State, its legacy and its promise. I enjoyed meeting with friends – old and new – talking with colleagues and appreciating the awesome talents of our Jackson State University students, as mentored and taught by our faculty.
Understanding that hosting such an occasion is no small feat, I was impressed by the great attention to detail. So many people worked so hard to make this time a grand occasion not only for me, but also for this great institution. I am eternally grateful to you all.
I’m especially proud of the way the entire campus community worked together and showed excellent customer service and hospitality to all of our local and out-of-town visitors. The Mississippi blue carpet was rolled out in grand fashion. Committee chairperson Dr. Glenda Glover and her co-chair Ms. Debra McGee did a wonderful job bringing together the talent of Jacksonians and friends of Jackson State.
The faculty and staff involved in the inauguration have set a bar of excellence that the entire campus should strive for 365 days a year.
I’m truly honored to serve as the tenth president of Jackson State University and hope that my leadership continues the path of excellence that has endured for 134 years.
I’m proud of Jackson State, its accomplishments and that I’ve been given the honor of serving as its tenth president. We are one JSU!
