Congratulations Tigers!

Dear JSU Family,

Saturday’s game was exciting!  I am so proud of our team and how they have come together.  What a splendid end to our 2012 home-game season.

Join me in thanking Athletic Director Dr. Vivian Fuller and her coaches and staff for a wonderful home season!  I loved the fireworks and the flyover on Saturday.  And Senior Day was special as it should be.  Take a moment this week to let Coach Rick Comegy and his staff know that we are ONE Jackson State behind them as they pursue the Southwestern Athletic Conference title.  Take the time to thank someone on the Athletics staff for the fine job they are doing, and the Institutional Advancement staff, the Stadium staff and the Student Life staff for their collaboration and support resulted in a fabulous (to me) home football season.  Please also take the time to congratulate our soccer and volleyball coaches and their staffs.  Take the time to encourage each other.

Please also take a moment to join me in expressing gratitude to those on the academic side of the campus, especially those in the Academic Enhancement Center and the Division of Undergraduate Studies.  Guess what?  JSU no longer has any NCAA sanctions, proving for all once again that brains and brawn are not mutually exclusive at JSU. Our wonderful tradition lives on.

Let the football team know that you are proud of them as scholars and as athletes and cheer them on to victory next Saturday.  They are fine young men!

Last, I thank each of you on behalf of Tigers everywhere for enhancing our brand through all of the things you do every day.

ONE Jackson State!!!!
