Dear JSU Family,

Welcome to the Fall 2023 edition of the Jacksonian. We are happy to announce a strategic initiative to keep you more informed about our "Dear Ole' College Home." The Jacksonian is transitioning to two issues a year. We believe that a bi-annual delivery will keep you more connected and engaged with the latest Jackson State University news.

As you know, a new academic year is upon us, and with it comes the energy and excitement of a promising semester for our faculty, staff and students. I remember all too well my time as a JSU student and looking forward to the start of classes and reconnecting with professors and friends. Each day brought me closer to attaining my college degree from “Thee I Love.”

I am sure our new students have been eagerly anticipating this moment, and we welcome the many beautiful possibilities and opportunities our campus community will provide them. Helping our students fulfill their academic and professional dreams is always at the heart of what we do.

Jackson State University continues to be an industry leader in preparing students for the awaiting and evolving workforce. Over the summer, our Public Health Informatics and Technology program introduced high school students to robotics, coding, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity through their Health Informatics, Science and Technology Academy. Our youth are the masters of the future, and we must nurture their talents and potential as such.

Many of our students spent the summer interning with in-demand companies such as Apple, Woolpert, Microsoft, Deloitte and Amazon. They were able to grow their skillset, gain mentors and build their networks. All of this contributes to their professional success once they leave our charge.

You, our alumni, exemplify what is possible with a JSU education and are a shining example of the academic excellence we foster at 1400 J.R. Lynch Street. This excellence resonates in the story of fellow alum DeMarco Morgan, who was recently named co-anchor of "GMA3," an afternoon spinoff off ABC’s "Good Morning America." He proudly credits his JSU education as a means to his achievements.

We also remain an institution that produces scholars who use their acumen and circumstances to help transform lives throughout the globe. JSU alum Nicole Betson is heading cancer research in her native Belize. She talks about the professors who inspired her desire to improve processes and treatments for those in need. As she works to establish a cancer research unit, she brilliantly represents Jackson State on the other side of the world.

As we look ahead to the fall, make sure you support Coach T.C. Taylor, who shares his vision for our football program in this issue. All of your stories embody what it means to be a member of the JSU family. We are bold, resilient and collaboratively working to elevate our institution through the exceptional learning encounters we create for our students.

The JSU community’s service-driven spirit raises our profile, helping to attract and retain students, bolster institutional support and create philanthropic opportunities. I thank you for your many contributions, as evidenced in our Day of Giving, exceeding our $650,000 goal for academic scholarships.

And while we know things must evolve for us to grow as an institution of the future, the deep love and care you show for our alma mater remains unchanged. Thank you for all that you do for Jackson State University.

Greetings JSU Tiger Alums,

Serving as president of the Jackson State University National Alumni Association is a privilege. Our organization is full of phenomenal, supportive and energetic alums. You pour your hearts and souls into our “dear ole college home,” and your contributions make us one of the best alumni associations in the nation. There is no one better than a JSU Tiger, and we execute this spirit in all we do.

We have successfully concluded the first year under my administration and have made significant strides in our fundraising and mentorship efforts. I want to thank each of you for donating to JSU, an institution that has shaped and influenced our lives in ways, great and small. We have prioritized our giving, focusing on the direct support of our scholars.

Therefore, I am excited to report that we raised more than $100,000 for the university. Our funds will be used to assist the Tiger Food Pantry, student scholarships, athletics, the Sonic Boom of the South and the MADDRAMA Performance Troupe. I am proud of this accomplishment, but we can and will do more. Our charge is to continue “Building Capacity” and “Strengthening Bonds” as we engage alumni in new ways and elevate JSU as a first-class institution.

Remember, your time and financial gifts can be life-changing for JSU students, helping them reach their academic aspirations and propel them to the ultimate goal of commencement. We also need your creativity to help us enhance ways to recruit new alums and ensure they remain active throughout their membership. Please do not hesitate to share your ideas for new initiatives, events and opportunities to grow our presence and spread the JSU footprint beyond our imaginations.

We must continue to build community and connect with our alumni associations throughout the country. I encourage you to get involved by volunteering and attending our events. We need your Tiger energy on full display so future alumni know that we are an extension of the nurturing family found at JSU.

Thank you for all you do. I look forward to our continued collaboration and another successful year!

In an exclusive interview, new Jackson State Head Football Coach T. C. Taylor discussed program goals while firmly focused on continuing the championship legacy. The former JSU quarterback and wide receiver (1998-2001) played professionally before moving into the coaching ranks in 2005, and has been on the Jackson State football coaching staff since 2019.

Taylor, who holds the school record for most receptions in a season, is motivated to continue the greatness of JSU Football by winning on the field and in the classroom while fostering an excellent football culture. Taylor is ready for the new chapter of Tigers' football, and he provided insight into the vision for the future.

How do you plan to build upon the existing success?

Our vision for the program is to continue to win, to continue to graduate our student-athletes on a yearly basis and to recruit the top talent in the country. We want to continue bringing in dominant football players who can come in and help us win championships. That's what we're going to continue to do moving forward.

Are there any particular challenges or areas of concern you anticipate encountering as the new coach, and how do you plan to address them?

We've had a lot of turnovers in the roster with the transfer portal and many guys moving on. However, we have a lot of new talent here and we are continuing to improve the chemistry of our football team. I think that's the biggest thing, that

these guys can come together on a day-to-day basis, and if so, we'll be fine going forward.

What are your short-term and long-term goals for the program, and how will you measure success?

Our short-term goal is to take it day-to-day and understand the assignment. There are a lot of expectations here as the head coach at Jackson State, so I'm going to try to win one day at a time. Our longterm goals are to continue to win championships and graduate our student-athletes.

How do you plan to handle the pressure and expectations that come with coaching the JSU football program that has a celebrated legacy of success?

I don't believe in pressure. (The expectations) are what it was when I accepted the job. That's what it's all about; winning football games. I'm a winner. I love to win, so that's the expectation. To say pressure, I don't talk about pressure. I know it comes with the territory. I played in it, I grew up in it, so I get it.

With the transfer portal becoming more prominent, how do you approach recruiting and player retention in this new landscape?

In regards to retention, you want to make sure to take care of the players you have in-house. You talk to them about that once you bring them into the JSU Tiger family. You talk to the parents as well. You have to get to know the parents. They play a big role in these student-athletes' lives.

We're going to continue to use the transfer portal. Kids are going in daily, weekly; it seems like. So, we're going to be in there daily, weekly as well. We will continue to use the transfer portal and work on keeping the guys we do have here by treating them right and ensuring their stay at Jackson State is one of a kind.

We're looking to grow our alumni base, and that's among the things the transfer portal can affect. You want to make sure while you have those studentathletes on campus that you're doing right by them.

JSU alum Nicole Betson leads cancer research efforts in Belize

Jackson State University alumna Nicole Betson, Ph.D., embarked on a journey to improve cancer treatment worldwide, starting in her country of Belize.

“I realized so many gaps and deficiencies needed to be addressed. That's how I came to the mission of trying to navigate that process and be not only an advocate but be able to get Belize where it needs with respect to cancer,” Betson said.

Betson credits her interest in biomedical research and science to a perspective that goes beyond “seeing a patient” but provides a look at the mechanisms and pathways of sickness and, along the way, this led her to discover a passion for research.

Her areas of training include medical oncology, biomedical sciences, epidemiology, and biostatistics.

She completed her training in translational molecular pathology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, studying new animal models that recapitulate pancreatic and colorectal cancer in humans and innovative translational research conducted on patient-derived models and bio-specimens.

Fengxiang Han, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Chemistry, Physics, and Atmospheric Sciences at JSU, is one of the numerous professors at JSU who have been instrumental in her life, she said. “Almost all of my professors – and even those who weren’t my professor – that I have worked with during graduate school have become family,” Betson said.

Han is pleased that Betson is continuing to surpass the expectations of academic and medical excellence that she built upon while pursuing her Ph.D.

“Dr. Betson plays a very important role in promoting cancer research and better serving the country of Belize. She is a very motivated and self disciplined medical professional with a solid scientific foundation and excellent academic training,” said Han. “I am very proud of her achievements.”

the jacksonian 10 cybersecurity technology
William H. Kelly III
“I found something that I want to embark on.”

More than six months ago, Betson started her mission as a health planner at the Ministry of Health and Wellness in Belmopan, Belize. Her responsibilities include establishing a research unit and the policy for it, plus developing a national comprehensive cancer plan, but her main concern is advocacy for cancer patients.

“What's happening in Belize is that most of the patients, who have cancer, are experiencing a lag time,” she said. “And we know that you need to act immediately when you're diagnosed with cancer.”

Many patients must prolong their treatment for cancer because of financial stipulations and because the country lacks resources for treatment. Betson said that Belizeans are unsure of what to do or where to go once they’ve been diagnosed with cancer, and citizens must travel to other countries, such as Mexico, Guatemala, or the U.S., if they can afford it, for treatment.

There is no cancer registry for Belize, and Betson is developing one. A cancer registry is an information system that collects, manages and analyzes data based on persons diagnosed with cancer or cancerous tumors.

“That is where your evidence-based planning occurs and is a part of your public health training because, with the data, you're able to understand not only the mortality rates but the incidence rates, the prevalence, what ethnicity is affected the most, what part of the country and more,” Betson said.

Betson strongly believes that every cancer patient needs to have the availability of a Cancer Continuum of Care being offered. The cancer continuum of care aims to reduce the incidence, morbidity and mortality of cancer and to improve the quality of life of cancer patients in a defined population through the systematic implementation of evidence-based interventions for prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and palliative care.

Nearly a year and a half ago, while studying and working at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Betson received a call from her mother, Carolyn Betson, saying she had been diagnosed with Stage 2 bladder cancer. That motivated Betson to fight for a better, more inclusive healthcare system for cancer patients.

At the height of her career, Betson left the U.S. and moved to Belize to support and care for her mom.

“I came in with the picture of knowing and seeing what it was like firsthand with my mom, and that devastated me,” she said. “I was crushed because I didn't know the situation in Belize. If it wasn't for our persistence and connection to the medical system, she wouldn't be able to receive the treatment she got. Then I thought, ‘How many Belizeans can afford this opportunity?’ Not a lot.”

Betson traveled to Mexico with her mother so she could receive the bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) for immunotherapy treatment. This process acts directly on the immune system to regulate and

strengthen the immune system, teaching it how to locate and destroy cancer cells.

“While I was focused on my mom and fighting for her survival, my heart was very heavy. I thought to myself, ‘This is the reality of the situation that is going on as it pertains to cancer,’” said Betson. “That's when I was fueled like, ‘OK, I'm not going to just be here for my mom throughout her cancer process, but I need to make a difference. I need to be part of the Ministry of Health and Wellness and be in a position where I can advocate for change on a policy level, too.”’

In May 2023, Carolyn Betson was declared cancer free but will continue recommended check-ups. “The message that I always want to stress every time I have a platform or opportunity is that because you're declared cancer free doesn’t mean it's over,” she said.

Betson knows it will take time to see a change in cancer treatment in Belize and worldwide.

“I just pray and hope that it continues catching fire and that everybody can understand, see the need and know this priority. Let's be relentless about it and act now. It's not tomorrow, not the future, but now and every little step and milestone that we take in acting now leads onto a bigger catalytic change for the future.”

thanks JSU for latest win

ne never knows where their path may lead, but looking back is a useful reminder of the journey, believes Jackson State University alum DeMarco Morgan, who was named co-anchor of ABC’s “GMA3:What You Need to Know.” The show is an afternoon spin-off of the nationally syndicated "Good Morning America."

In an emotional interview, Morgan told GMA co-anchor Robin Roberts that he immediately began crying when he learned the news.

"That wasn't supposed to be my story. The little boy from Tulsa, Oklahoma, with the Jheri curl back in the day. Thank God for a mother who believed in making sure she poured herself into what I wanted to become," Morgan said.

But as the saying goes: Everything happens for a reason.

"Sometimes you don't understand why you make a move going left or right. Or, why you move from one city to the next," he said during an interview with JSU.

In 2019, Morgan's professional path took an unpredictable turn. The coronavirus pandemic spread to the U.S., and employers would have to quickly adjust in ways unforeseen.

At that time, Morgan, a CBS news correspondent, moved from New York to Los Angeles to work as the anchor at CBS's West Coast flagship station, KCBS, and CBS2's weekday, covering the 4:30 a.m. to 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. newscasts.

In mid-March, CBS's New York headquarters temporarily closed after

three reported cases of COVID-19. All employees, including anchors and production staff, had to shelter in place. New York was among the hardest hit and one of the states with the highest number of COVID-19 cases.

"New York called and asked if I would anchor the local shows for WCBS in New York City from Los Angeles. They also asked that I anchor the National CBS Weekend News," he said.

The situation was a first for the network, but unprecedented challenges often call for creative solutions. Selecting Morgan seemed like a good solution because New York and the tri-state area audiences were already familiar with him.

An experienced journalist, Morgan spent four years of his career in New York delivering news from the field and CBS headquarters. He covered a range of topics, from natural disasters such as Hurricane Harvey and California wildfires to the funeral of Aretha Franklin and the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida, and did a series of reports on the country's heroin crisis.

To pull off the bi-coastal broadcast, the CBS production team in New York and Los Angeles worked from home, while a small crew, following CDC guidelines, assisted with televising the news from the L.A. office.

"God will always have you prepared for what is to come," said Morgan, who, on March 13, 2019, posted an Instagram photo of him seated at the L.A. news desk.

The universe has shifted again, landing Morgan back in New York on “GMA3” post-pandemic. Reflecting on his educational aspirations, Morgan makes a point to shout out his alma mater, JSU.

"I applied to 12 colleges and universities and was denied acceptance to all of them but one. Jackson State University was the only one that said,

Alumni Focus the jacksonian 12

'Yes.' I wouldn't be where I am had it not been for that HBCU," Morgan told Roberts.

Having not applied himself and finishing high school at the bottom of his class, Morgan made the most of his time at JSU, receiving a Bachelor of Science in 2001. He also credits JSU for prepping him for graduate studies at Columbia University.

Morgan contends that there is a special beauty in attending an HBCU. "Sometimes, we don't have the same amount of capital as some of the larger schools. But we had enough, and we made do with what we have," he said.

What sets JSU apart?

Morgan said an HBCU gives students a chance.

"They will embrace you with open arms. I always tell people, 'I live for Jackson State, and I die for Jackson State.' That is my school. I was able to accomplish a dream that I've had since second grade... without Jackson State, that would not have been possible."

he love between Alexis and Stephen, or "Deuce," began on the campus of Jackson State University circa 2014. During a freshman week event, I introduced myself to Alexis as "Deuce." However, not much stemmed from this initial interaction. I made a point to always speak to Alexis when we crossed paths on campus, but she would always claim to be "too busy" to stop and chat for long. A year later, Alexis finally made an effort to attend one of the many events I invited her to. She made sure to let it be known that she did, in fact, come to support the event.

During the summer of 2015, Alexis came to her senses and finally decided to give this persistent man an opportunity to be in her life Thank God! From there, we went on a few dates and had plenty of conversations about life, expectations and goals.

If you know Alexis, you know she has a strong addiction to cake/cupcakes. One day, I offered to get Alexis' car and have it detailed. On this particular day her craving for cake was like no other. I informed her that her car would be returned with a small cake to satisfy this outrageous craving. After returning the car, I told her I had forgotten the cake. At this point, I might as well had not washed the car.

A few minutes later, after leaving the campus, I called Alexis and told her I had left something in her trunk and asked her to check it. When she opened the trunk, there was her cake, flowers, and a sign asking her to be my girlfriend. Alexis called me back with the biggest Kool-aid smile, ecstatic with her "yes."


Seemingly, the years flew by as our young love matured into old. Life transitioned from all-night parties at the frat house to all-night cram sessions for professional degrees. We grew from childish desires for promise rings to Stephen promising that he would only give me a wedding ring. It seemed as though he couldn't ask the big question soon enough.

On Thanksgiving Day 2021, Stephen proved to be a man of his word and popped the big question in front of my family, and of course, I said yes!

On September 17, 2022, the day had finally come. I was officially marrying my college sweetheart and Prince Charming. We vowed our love for one another before our family and friends. Our special day became everything we dreamt it to be, a moment to share the #RayfordRomance with a reception as lit as a JSU Hotspot!

Reginald "Reggie" and I officially met on campus between Alexander Hall and the Jacob L. Reddix building. As a new member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, I remember being approached by Reggie, a recently elected SGA justice, as he began to express the importance of the role of leadership vehemently and representing their affiliated Greek letter organizations in the best possible light.

He had just visited the "tree" where all the neophytes for Phi Beta Sigma and Zeta Phi Beta sat with their new paraphernalia. I didn't remember much about what he said, but I remember his conviction and passion for what he believed. When Reggie completed his comments, I introduced myself as the just-appointed SGA vice president, an occurrence he had not been aware of. As we continued to converse, it became evident that we had similar goals of service, community engagement, academic scholarship, and strong familial connections and love for our dear old college home.

What we did not know was that each of us had been checking each other out from afar. Reggie inquired with one of his fraternity brothers about me. I had gone as far as verbally claiming that he would be my husband after seeing him walk across the plaza that day. After our initial meeting, we formed a strong friendship. Working on committees and in various organizations, we began to spend more time together. Although we were not actively pursuing an exclusive relationship then, our friendship blossomed into an undeniable bond.

On our first official date, I was preparing to bow my head to say grace silently, and he reached across the table, grabbed my hand and blessed the food for us both. It was a welcomed surprise that solidified my growing attraction.

Our love story was not without challenges. Over the next couple of years, we "made up to break up" a few times, but those separations did not last long. We always found our way back together. We navigated long distances due to Reggie attending graduate school while I served my final year as SGA president and enrolled in graduate/professional school.

For Reginald, the phrase, ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder,’ was a true testament to his feelings for me while away from home. He said he realized I was the person he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. Once we completed our professional studies, we moved in together and have been together since.

This year, we will be celebrating 17 years of marital bliss. We have four future tigers, Hart, Jacob, Brooklynn and Eli. Hart was recently offered a full presidential scholarship to attend JSU. In all we do, we try to embody the motto that was impressed upon us as undergrads- God, Family, and JSU!


We met in the summer of 2013 when Lauren was running for freshman class parliamentarian. I still remember her campaign pitch to me, "My name isn't Ralph Lauren, but I sure am Taylor-made." She gave me her campaign spiel, and the only thing I could remember was how beautiful and well-spoken she was. Little did she know she was Taylor made for me.

We became friends in 2014 in SGA, and I remember us having to wear those hot suits in 95-degree weather, marching in as we arrived at the SGA football game box. We had to find a partner to walk in the games with for every game before entering the stadium. We decided that every time we were at the game together, we would always go as partners.

We started attending the same church in college and completed the same summer internship at FedEx headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee. On July 1, 2016, we had our first date at Life Kitchen in downtown Memphis.

After graduating from Jackson State, we started dating long-distance and were engaged in May 2018. Lauren thought we were going to see the movie "Acrimony," but she didn't know I had rented out the entire theatre and filmed a movie of me asking for her hand in marriage. The theatre was pitch black, and her family was in the front row. The "movie" started with regular commercials, and then I popped on the screen asking her to marry me. All of Lauren's family and my family were in the film saying, “Congratulations!” She had no idea her ticket to see the movie "Acrimony" was her invitation to be married.

On June 1, 2019, I lived the dream of marrying my college sweetheart. We have been married for over four years and reside in Franklin, Tennessee.

Anton Vincent establishes $100K scholarship at Jackson State University in honor of his parents

When Anton Vincent, president of Mars Wrigley, North America, visited Jackson State University to serve as the keynote speaker for the Spring Graduate Commencement Ceremony, he left more than pearls of wisdom. The Jackson native bestowed a generous $100,0000 gift to establish The Pearl and George Vincent Educational Excellence Scholarship in honor of his parents, who served on the faculty for 25 years.

“My parents were lifelong educators, between them 88 years of educational leadership. Teaching students from early childhood all the way to Ph.D. students,” says Vincent. “This scholarship is in honor of their commitment, leadership and legacy in the educational field. I really want to offer talented students who are passionate about a career in education a chance. Investing in these students impacts all of society.”

The scholarship will be used to pay for tuition, textbooks, supplies and other fees included in the cost of education for eligible students. To be eligible for the scholarship, a candidate must be an undergraduate student majoring in education and enrolled full-time at Jackson State University, must maintain a 2.75 GPA or above, and must demonstrate a financial need.

the jacksonian 18
"I look forward to my family helping to build more dedicated educators through this scholarship."

College of Education and Human Development Dean Jerri Haynes, Ed.D., said this gift will enable students to fill the void left by public education funding cuts, minimize students' debts, support equitable outcomes and expand students' networks.

"The Pearl and George Vincent Educational Excellence Scholarship will pave the path to the future of education in the College of Education and Human Development by allowing our students' access to become future educators. It will allow our students to spend more time on their academics and less time thinking about how they will pay for school. The contribution made by Mr. Vincent is transformative. We cannot say thank you enough for such a significant contribution to the future of education. People like Mr. Vincent make a difference in education and our society, and we are incredibly grateful,” said Dean Haynes.

Vincent is a graduate of Murrah High School in Jackson, where he was a scholar-athlete having played on many championship basketball teams for legendary Coach Orsmond Jordan, Jr. He is enshrined in the Murrah High School Hall of Fame and was voted Most Likely to Succeed. Vincent recalls his parents’ guidance as educators helped prepare him for a purpose driven life and leadership in a global economy.

“My parents were beautiful people. They were tough and supportive. Most importantly, they ensured we had a spiritual foundation, worked hard,

didn’t make excuses and never set limits on what we could achieve. These are fundamental principles that they instilled in me and my four brothers George, Michael, Pierre and Tyrone. We’ve tried to embody those principles throughout our lives.” Vincent says he is excited to play a role in supporting the next generation of educators who will soon leave lasting impressions on their students, just like his parents did for so many in the Jackson metro area and across the south.

“My parents loved educating students. They got no greater joy than seeing students break through and achieve,” says Vincent. “I can’t tell you how many times the thousands of students whom my parents taught enthusiastically saying, ‘your mom taught me’ or ‘your dad taught me.’ My parents impacted lives every day. I look forward to my family helping to build more dedicated educators through this scholarship.”

t all started with an email and the courage to care. When Girmay Berhie, Ph.D., arrived in the U.S. from Ethiopia, he was committed to making a difference in the lives of other African refugees like himself. He found that resources were scarce, so he decided to investigate writing grants.

“I realized when I was at Marshall (University) the need for informatics and analytics. I asked to start a program, but they were not sure because of money,” he said. “Once my daughters were off with their own lives, I wondered if there was a possibility that I could make a difference at an HBCU. In 2019, I landed at JSU.”

In June 2021, JSU Vice President Joseph Whittaker, Ph.D., forwarded an email to Berhie, then dean of the College of Health Sciences, about a new workforce development program named PHIT (Public Health Informatics and Technology). The program aimed to strengthen public health information technology efforts in the U.S., improve COVID-19 data collection and increase representation of underrepresented communities within the public health information technology workforce.

Berhie submitted a grant proposal that was awarded $10 million by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. The 10 recipients, which include Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions (AANAPISIs) and other institutions of higher education, will form multiple consortia to collectively train more than 5,000 individuals in an interdisciplinary approach in public health informatics and technology during a four-year period.

The consortia will develop curricula, recruit and train participants, secure paid internship opportunities and assist in career placement at public health agencies, public health-focused nonprofits or other public health-focused organizations. Berhie envisions JSU becoming a more diverse, technologically advanced university that is a catalyst for digital transformation.

“My only question to the administration was, ‘Can we make a difference in the lives of our kids?’ Our kids need to have the skills, the knowledge and the values to compete in a digital world,” he said. “I shared with them at that time that the only thing I would need is the latitude to work with faculty, the chairs (of departments) and the staff to make this program a reality.”

Berhie has successfully secured funding for several major projects and continues to do so. In addition to the initial award, PHIT was awarded $230,500 for a high school component, HISTA (Health Informatics, Science and Technology Academy), that will expose high school students to Python, Tableau, AI and cybersecurity, and a community college training program was funded for $300,000 through bio-technology giant Genentech.

A second division, a Digital Telehealth Hub, received $700,000 for the study of health inequities in diabetic, cardiovascular, mental health and maternal health patients. Those programs can run without the support of state funding and will in no way burden the university, Berhie said.

PHIT Executive Director Loria Brown Gordon, Ph.D., who has accrued 30 years at JSU that includes serving as the dean of the Honors College, said working with the team to craft the PHIT proposal was a better option for her than retiring.

“This was something new for Jackson State. Something new for me. Something to learn,” she said. “We’d not had a public health informatics or an informatics and analytics grant awarded to Jackson State. It’s not every day that you get a lump sum of $10 million over a period of time.” Each of the programs will anchor PHIT in multiple ways, Gordon said. There are four milestones for the PHIT grant: Curriculum development (training, undergraduate, graduate, doctoral), consortium development, training, and sustainability.

“Part of Dr. Berhie’s vision for the curriculum is us creating a pathway, then recruiting students and helping them matriculate in that pathway,” she said. “We’ll continue to write other proposals, along with our performa budgeting that will offer long term viability.”

The tie to real-world experiences cannot be understated, Gordon said. PHIT will position students for internships that are relevant and then, ultimately, gainful employment, she said.

Jarek Peterson, a sophomore therapeutic recreation major, is interning with PHIT’s HISTA program. He considers PHIT important because students will use informatics and data collection in almost every field they pursue after graduation, and he quickly signed up when the opportunity presented itself.

“I’ve always wanted to expand my learning when it came to technology. When I was informed about the training me and my fellow students would receive, I was interested immediately,” said Peterson, a native of Jackson. “Since starting, I’ve studied Tableau, informatics, coding and many other tools that will stick with me forever.”

The PHIT program expects to award 75 certificates and 120 degrees in data science and public health informatics in the next four years. It is the only program of its kind that can benefit students in numerous disciplines, whether it is business, education and human development, health sciences, liberal arts or STEM. The program will offer students real-time training in their fields of choice and give them skills to analyze raw data to help the productivity of any business or system. JSU will partner with Alcorn State University’s Cora S. Balmat School of Nursing and develop curricula to train Alcorn students in nursing informatics.

Berhie said, "When programs operate in silos it costs more money, they are less efficient and have difficulty working collaboratively. Working with all the deans to minimize silos and create synergy will be more cost effective and make better use of resources, he said. First, we want to be transformative. We want commitment. You have to have the courage to care,” he said.

JSU Political Science Department uses pipeline for student success

he Political Science Department at Jackson State University leads the nation in placing African Americans in doctorate programs, according to Byron Orey, Ph.D., JSU political science professor. He credits the department’s successful pipeline with placing 20 students in some of the country's top political science Ph.D. programs during the last 10 years.

"I'm intimately familiar with HBCUs,” Orey said. “PWIs (Predominantly White Institutions), based on sheer numbers, don't have the number of African Americans to where they could produce that many students over that short period.”

The department's success stems from a grant it received in 2009 from the National Science Foundation. To date, the department has received an estimated $1.5 million in research grants and an additional $200,000 in student fellowships.

"This shows that we have the students capable of performing at such high levels, and we have the faculty talented enough to develop students to meet the challenge," said Political Science Department Chair Maruice Mangum, Ph.D. "Alternatively, it also speaks to the lack of diversity in other places and that JSU is a leader to fill that void."

Orey also credits students' strategic placement in programs and developing relationships with other universities.

"Some people think that you have to get a master's degree first and then a Ph.D., but our success has been with sending undergraduate students into Ph.D. programs directly from the undergraduate program," he said.

Faculty members encourage students to participate in research activities and experiential learning.

"It's important for students of color to ascend to the academy. We get closer to understanding all sorts of phenomena when different minds weigh in on these subjects. Because of that, we encourage students to consider graduate school in political science because there are places for them. In fact, they're desired," Mangum said.

The expectation is to nurture critical-thinking skills in students by encouraging them to enroll in summer programs at Harvard, Princeton, the University of California in Berkeley, the University of Michigan (UoM) and other institutions.

"Before we knew it, Michigan was offering an emerging scholar program where students could present their research, and my colleagues contacted me to see if we'd participate, and that's how we got started," said Orey about the JSU and UoM collaboration.

The political science department has had nine students travel to Michigan as research presenters or to conduct research alongside a mentor.

"One of the strongest variables that contribute to success is placing undergraduate students in programs where you have Ph.D. students they can relate to and communicate with, and those students serve as mentors," he said.

Orey strives to connect undergraduates with a graduate student or faculty member who will fuel their desire to conduct research, ultimately leading them to pursue a Ph.D. He calls the process the "each one, teach one" model and considers it the making of a successful student pipeline.


Last year, the Bob Owen Pre-Law Center opened in the JSU College of Liberal Arts, distinguishing itself as the first and only pre-law center at an HBCU in the state. The center exists to set students on the course to law school and is designed to meet their needs. Charles Irvin, J.D., serves as the center's director.

"This is just another brick to how great Jackson State truly is," said Jacobi Grant, J.D., adjunct professor and compliance officer for the Division of Research and Economic Development.

Irving believes in the vision of the center's founder, Bob Owens', J.D., a 1973 JSU graduate, who wanted Jackson State to become a significant pipeline for law schools nationwide.

"We want to have a program that promotes the tools and resources not just to get people into law school but have them excel in law school," Irvin said. "We

offer diversity readiness, professional development, and law school admission test prep, and we have them ready for every avenue to get in and succeed."

In its first year, the pre-law center accepted nine students into the Bob Owen's Pre-Law Academy, the center's premier program. Two students have since graduated. Beginning this fall, all Bob Owens Pre-Law Center students will be enrolled in virtual LSAT prep courses. In the 2023-2024 school year, the center expects to have about 20 students enrolled in the competitive program.

In April, the center had three students participate in the FormanWatkins Diversity Pipeline Program. Forman Watkins is one of the nation's most respected trial law firms and among the largest in the region. The law firm's pipeline program aligns with the pre-law center's goal to increase the diversity of law school applicants.

"Those three students in the Forman Watkins Diversity Pipeline Program are now set up to have shadowing opportunities at that law firm potentially and to compete for summer internships, and if they're successful, that is the actual feeder program for job placement after law school,” Irvin said.

The facilitators of the pre-law center assist students with writing, resume' building and teaching them the importance of career networking.

"One of the biggest things is creating a network, having the students understand the importance of the network and what they should look to learn from people," said Grant. "We have planned events with law schools to make the admissions process as understandable and easy as possible."

The Hinds County Public Defender's Office and the Hinds County District Attorney's Office are among the local organizations that granted pre-law center students hands-on opportunities to gain experience in a law office setting.

The interdisciplinary program is selective, and students must have a 3.4-grade point average or higher to gain entry. The center accepts applications in the spring.

"We've always produced lawyers at Jackson State, but it is tremendous to have that under the supervision of the pre-law center, to have an umbrella for nurturing it within the College of Liberal Arts and to have it available for all disciplines,” Irvin said.

When Khaylah Rose, a rising junior computer engineering student at Jackson State, was offered an internship this summer with the global software company Autodesk, she found it an exciting opportunity that validated the education and experience she already had.

“Autodesk was looking for an intern with a specified skill set, and I had exactly what they were looking for,” Rose said. The internship required knowledge of SharePoint, HTML and CSS, each of which was on her resume.

Rose credits her robust resume to experiences that Jackson State helped cultivate for her. “If it wasn’t for the experience that Jackson State gave us, like competing in hackathons and doing small side projects … I would never have gotten most of my experiences that I have now,” she said.

Williams said interning at Apple provides an opportunity to develop new capabilities, refine his current skill set and expand his professional network.

“I want to be a software developer, a software engineer in the future. I want to improve my understanding of technological frameworks, programming skills, ability to problem solve a piece of code that has an issue,” he said. “I definitely try to meet as many people as I can. There are many smart people at Apple. These are people who are going to be doing incredible stuff in the future. And so it’s good to keep those kinds of contacts.”

Segun Olutade, a rising junior computer science student interning at Microsoft, was excited to see how a major company operates from the inside. “I’m honestly looking forward to learning how to navigate the dynamics of the corporate world before I graduate college. Learning about that would help me create my own startup in the future, preferably in Africa,” he said.

The internship opportunities help students identify career opportunities they have not considered. Rose assumed the career path for a computer science student would be straightforward, but working on the strategic foresight team at Autodesk helped her realize how many different paths she could take.

The on-campus Center for Innovation provided and continues to provide invaluable resources so Rose can advance her knowledge and capabilities and interact with other students and faculty members. “The first time I went to the Innovation Center, I was like, ‘I wish I knew about this earlier because it has everything from EA games, laptops, desktops to virtual realities and free 3D printing,”’ she said.

Extensive and impressive resumes allowed Rose and other Jackson State students to acquire internships at some of the most sought-after companies including Apple, Amazon, Deloitte, and Microsoft and ensured they were positioned to do meaningful work during their summer experiences.

“We work on different things that are helpful to the company. They don’t just give you a throwaway project,” said Opeoluwa Williams, a graduate student in computer science, about his internship with Apple. “Whatever you work on, it is something that’s going to be relevant to helping people.”

“My path just broadens. I know I can really do any work in any field,” she said, explaining how her strategic foresight team is responsible for analyzing events taking place around the world and how they may one day impact the company. “Until my internship, I didn’t really think I’d be part of analyzing change for the future. You know, that sounds pretty cool.”

Experiences outside of an academic setting in the realworld help clarify for the students the kind of companies they want to work. Ka’Pri Burden, a rising senior computer science major and marketing minor, interned at Deloitte this summer. Not only is she hoping to expand her technical skills and business knowledge, but she wants to contribute to a company she respects and admires.

“I really support their culture and what they stand for,” Burden said. “There is a small percentage of women in tech, let alone Black women in tech. Deloitte has an inclusive culture focused on diversity, equity and inclusion. They really engage their people and care not only about their career, but their success outside of the office as well.”

Jackson State University, in collaboration with Getty Images, is curating a 25-30 piece exhibit of archived images detailing the history of JSU and its impact on Black academia from 1877 to now. The exhibit is set to debut in the Johnson Hall Art Gallery during JSU's Homecoming in October 2023.

"It's surreal. It has an affirmative quality to me because when I look at some of that imagery, I know some of those people," said JSU's Chief University Photographer Charles Smith. "There are just tons and tons of imagery that, as I was going through it in this process, I was blown away with the story this university has to tell. As alumni, we don't know what's out there, and I think there's an opportunity to let people see who we are as an institution by sharing that love internally and then with the community.""

In 2021, Getty Images announced its Photo Archive Grants Program for HBCUs, funded with $500,000 from the Getty family and the philanthropic organization Stand Together. The funding helps with the digitization of thousands of archival photos, post-production, metadata and equipment such as scanners necessary for the universities.

Cassandra Illidge is the vice president of Global Partnerships and executive director of the HBCU Grants Program at Getty Images. Illidge's team manages over 310

premium content partners secured by Getty Images, including Disney General Entertainment Content, Washington Post, NBCUniversal, BBC Studios, Sky News and Independent Television Network.

"This grant was created with pure impact in mind and to bring solutions to HBCUs, but also to complement the work that HBCUs are already doing to preserve their history," said Illidge.

According to Smith, the exhibit is intended to trigger the same sense of emotion in others, almost transporting viewers through space and time while giving them "a sense of time and place."

Through the imagery, guests will witness the transformation of West Jackson, which Smith says was the "hub for Black class, middle class, and working-class citizens" gaining their education. Along with the growth is the rare opportunity to experience the development of the campus's surrounding perimeters as it expands further into downtown Jackson.

"These images allow you to visually see what you read about Jackson's growth and the institution's growth," said Smith. "Starting as just a teacher's college and a college to train ministers and teachers, it ended up being a multifaceted university with Ph.D., science, technology, education programs and all the above. So that evolution and imagery speak to all that, to its current date."

However, detailing over 145 years of history, making 146 years on October 23, 2023, is a challenging task.

"Well, you first do it with the buildings. That is going to give people a sense of time and place.

Out of that comes the people operating within that physical plan. You would start with Ayer Hall as the center point and bring everything into that up to Ayer Hall today," said Smith. "So it'll be a visual thing, but you will get an opportunity to read about some history and the movements that Jackson and Jackson State went through."

Guests can expect to see never before seen images of JSU campus life, historical moments, distinguished events, and traditions that are long gone or have lived on.

"The whole core of building a Black middle class in this country has been wrapped around the significance and importance of the growth and development of HBCUs because that is how the Black middle class came about."

Through the grants program, Getty Images is helping to fund the framing and installation of the handpicked photos showcased at the exhibit. Jackson State will be the first university to partner with Getty Images on a project of this magnitude, and Illidge is excited to establish more in the future.

"Considering the number of photos that are coming from Jackson State, it became a no-brainer that this would be a great way to collaborate with the school to create an experience where guests are immersed in the photos on display and see the significance and meaning of JSU’s history and legacy,” said Illidge.

Illidge says that 100% of the revenue generated from any content from HBCUs that goes on is distributed to HBCUs and continues to impact the grants program. Fifty percent goes to the HBCU that owns the copyright, 30% goes toward a scholarship, and

the remaining 20% re-plenishes the grant to help other schools.

Throughout the exhibit, participants can purchase a framed image of their choice, which will be directly mailed to their homes via Getty Images fine art print sales website Participants can also select the preferred sizing and framing of the photo, with visual examples on the website of how it may appear in their desired space.

JSU’s Division of Library and Information Resources is another key partner in the exhibit and culmination of the Getty Images partnership. The division houses the university’s archives where many of the photos are being handpicked."

“The Getty Images project has been a trailblazing experience for the library. It has been something that has taken us out of these walls, which is on the fifth floor of the H. T. Sampson Library, and exposed us to the world,” said Interim Dean of University Libraries, Locord Wilson, Ph.D. “This will be an event that will showcase what the archives have and all the hidden treasures we have in all of the little rooms, boxes and drawers.”

As part of the grants program, Epson donated scanners and printers to each partner institution. Adnet Global representatives are working alongside university archivists to assist in production, and Denny's provides stipends for students interested in working with the grants program.

The Jackson State University GAP Emergency Fund was created to help students who may need extra financial assistance after all financial aid and scholarship awards have been applied toward tuition. The fund is also meant to support students in need due to an emergency that could disrupt their learning experience.

Managed by the Major and Planned Gifts Department in the Division of Institutional Advancement, the fund is unrestricted dollars available for students who experience financial hardships after they have exhausted financial aid and scholarship support from the University, said Gwen Caples, interim vice president of Institutional Advancement.

“Scholarships do not cover emergencies that may arise during a student’s matriculation. However,

the GAP Fund helps students in an economic crisis on a case-by-case basis,” Caples said.

For example, a student had a death in the family, and the family could not afford to bring the student home for the services. GAP funds were used to help purchase a plane ticket so the student could return home.

The GAP Emergency Fund was established in 2017 through the Division of Institutional Advancement’s Major and Planned Gifts Unit, led by Constance V. Lawson, interim associate vice president of Institutional Advancement.

The fund aided over 600 students in its first year. The program sets an annual campaign goal of $2.5 million for student scholarships and emergency expenses. The budget includes generous donations from university partners, alumni, and JSU supporters.

According to Lawson, “It is imperative that alumni and friends continue to give back in support of the university and the students we serve. Without our donors’ financial contributions, many students would not be able to complete their academic studies.”

The fund is managed with the assistance of the Office of Financial Aid, Student Affairs, Admissions and the Jackson State University Development Foundation. The university awards financial assistance through private support, including endowments and annual scholarships.

Caples said the fund is an example of how much the university cares about the success of its students. In the 2022-2023 academic year, roughly $100,000 in GAP funding was used to cover the remaining balance of graduating seniors, allowing them to walk across the stage worry-free.

"We had about 40 students this spring and about another 60 students in December who could not get cleared for graduation because they still had an outstanding balance. The money is now being utilized to help and support students throughout their matriculation," Caples said.

Cleveland, Ohio, native Alexis Johnson is a recent graduate who credits the emergency fund for helping her walk across the stage at the 2023 spring commencement. The funding provided her with the assistance she needed for several semesters throughout her time at JSU and kept her education on track.

"My sophomore year after I received GAP funding and I knew everything was taken care of and I had somewhere to sleep and a meal plan, it allowed me to do better in classes," said Johnson. "That year, I was actually on the Dean's List. Knowing that I did not have to figure out how I would survive financially, I was able to focus on getting my degree."

When she enrolled at JSU, Johnson said she received financial assistance from someone back home during her freshman year. Once that funding became unavailable, she faced adversity and feared she could not finish school.

"It was a mental battle, and I would question if I belonged at JSU. I have family members who went off to college and could not finish because they could not afford it financially. I always wondered whether that would be my story," said Johnson.

Now, Johnson has a more confident outlook about furthering her education and plans to pursue a master's degree soon.

In March 2020, when COVID-19 forced a global shutdown, the GAP Emergency Fund helped ease the financial burden students faced as they returned home during the pandemic. More recently, the Jackson water crisis disrupted campus operations in the 2022 fall semester.

As a result, little to no water pressure delayed students moving onto campus, inconveniencing numerous students and their families. Problems with the city's water resurfaced in November 2022, forcing many faculty and staff members to work remotely and students to attend classes virtually and deal with various unforeseen hardships.

"We quickly realized there was a significant inconvenience for our students when the water crisis occurred, so we wanted to make sure that we could support students in any way possible," said Fran'Cee Brown-McClure, Ph.D., vice president for student affairs. "We set up an application process for students to reach out to us and let us know how they were impacted and how we could assist them."

Brown-McClure said the university received an overwhelming number of inquiries from students. The institution spent an estimated $300,000 of the GAP Emergency Fund to aid students during the unprecedented situation. The fund received donations from various corporations and community organizations to help mitigate the water crisis.

"There were students who were single mothers who lived off campus who had to take care of their children and figure out how to get water into their homes. We had students who were too far from home and had to stay in hotels, students who could not wash their clothes, you name it, we had students in those scenarios," Brown-McClure explained.

Caples said that the Division of Institutional Advancement is grateful to its donors who continue to give and invest in the education of the next generation of leaders.

JSU professor’s research works to combat ‘most preventable cancer’ among Black women

Jackson State University professors are doing considerable research in ways to enhance and protect the health of communities nationally and internationally. Visiting Assistant Professor Angela Omondi, DrPH, conducted two studies comparing cervical cancer screening knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors among young pregnant Black women in Kenya, Eastern Africa, and young Black women in Mississippi.

“My key goal is prevention, to ensure that younger Black women of reproductive age have knowledge of risk factors for cervical cancer and access to early detection screening services. This can ultimately improve health outcomes,” said Omondi. “Cervical cancer is one of the most preventable forms of cancer. We must equip young women with essential knowledge and access to screening services to reduce incidence and deaths related to advanced-stage cervical cancer. The Pap smear test detects precancerous cells and supports early treatment and care.”

According to a study released by the American Cancer Society, cervical cancer is the most common cancer affecting women of all ages worldwide. In the United States, about 13,960 new cases of cervical cancer will be diagnosed, and about 4,310 women will die from the disease in 2023.

Little named HBCU Band Director of the Year

Jackson State University’s Sonic Boom of the South Band Director Roderick Little, Ph.D., is the 2022 HBCU band director of the year by Best American Craftsman (B.A.C.) Musical Instruments.

The manufacturing company hosted its inaugural Greatest of All Times (G.O.A.T.) Awards Ceremony last year in Chicago, making Little the first band director to win the award. The G.O.A.T Awards highlighted nine HBCU band directors across several categories, including showmanship and arranger of the year.

Master Craftsman and B.A.C. CEO Michael Corrigan gathered a panel of HBCU band directors, band staff members, and musicians to select the band directors most deserving of recognition. JSU Associate Director of Bands, Kevan Johnson, was nominated for the Arranger of the Year award.

Corrigan acknowledged Little for his direction and his passion while leading the Boom. Each award recipient was given a hand-crafted trophy that resembles the bell of a brass horn made by the company.

While there have been improvements in cervical cancer screening (Pap tests) rates among women of color, many underserved and underrepresented communities still do not have access to the resources and screening services to help eliminate cervical cancer, often described as the most preventable form of cancer.

JSU Air Force ROTC program soars to new heights with flight simulator debut

Jackson State University introduced a new Air Force flight simulator program that engages and equips cadets with the technical aspects and hands-on training necessary for piloting a commercial or military-grade aircraft.

The program is designed to provide additional hours of training for cadets interested in becoming a pilot. Only cadets on the fence about becoming a pilot can learn more about the career pathway through introductory training and exposure.

“If you look at the demographics for the Air Force, we have about 14,000 active duty pilots right now. Less than 300 are African American, so less than 2% of the Air Force active duty force is African-Americans operating aircraft,” said Lieutenant Colonel Natosha Reed, JSU Air Force ROTC commander.

Day at the Capitol: JSU advances legislative priorities, celebrates academic excellence and SWAC Champions

The Jackson State University delegation filled the halls of the Mississippi State Capitol in large numbers and high spirits in support of JSU programs and legislative priorities, as well as acknowledging the 2022 SWAC Championship teams programs, including football, women’s soccer, women’s tennis and men’s cross country.

“From our student-athletes, our coaches and other representatives, we deeply appreciate the fact that you recognize JSU excellence in this chamber today,” said JSU Acting President Elayne H. Anthony, Ph.D. “We are so very pleased to be a part of this, and I want to thank each and every one of you for what you do to support our fine university.”

Mississippi state legislators assembled inside the Senate and House chambers to salute the efforts of Jackson State University athletes, both in and outside

“I believe that the main reason is lack of exposure to our population versus those who’ve been exposed to flight simulators, flying programs, etc., since middle and high school. The ultimate goal and value of having a simulator within the detachment is to provide exposure and experience to our cadets, leading to production of more pilots in the Air Force from this detachment.”

The program is available for all cadets within the program as an additional support item for their curriculum and those who may have curiosity about the world of piloting. With this level of exposure and intentionality of programs readily available in underrepresented communities, visions of the future are becoming more colorful and promising, opening windows of opportunity and confidence for JSU students.

Group of pre-law students empowered by Future Black Lawyer Institute workshop in Phoenix

Five Jackson State University pre-law law students were invited to partake in a “Future Black Lawyer Institute” workshop in Phoenix during Super Bowl LVII. The trip was primarily sponsored by JSU leadership.

“The Department of Political Science believes that it is vital to bestow upon our students influential, long-lasting and unique experiences,” said Department of Political Science Chair Maruice Mangum, Ph.D. “Such high-impact practices encourage students to strive for higher heights and improve student success.”

The workshop attendees said they felt empowered by the experience, especially since it was a group of young black women who all aspire to become lawyers. The JSU students were also asked to mentor and assist high school and middle school students who attended the workshop as well. Sophomore political science major Kourtney Graves credited the opportunity for strengthening the bond between her and her peers.

In addition to meeting Arizona Supreme Court justices and mentoring, the pre-law students worked with the general counsel for the National Hockey League’s Arizona Coyotes and Minor League Baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the Super Bowl host committee. They also networked with entertainment lawyers who offered them internship opportunities.

JSU’s Department of Political Science celebrates 50 years, McLemore receives resolution by state senate, and Reeves honors student

Jackson State University’s Department of Political Science celebrated 50 years of existence with an anniversary jubilee in honor of its founder, Leslie-Burl McLemore, Ph.D. Several distinguished political science alums and retired faculty members paid their respects to the department and educators who laid the foundation for their professional careers.

Jackson State University’s College of Education and Human Development (COEHD) received accreditation from the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). The college becomes one of 41 educator preparation providers to receive the accreditation for spring 2023 from the accreditation council.

"This accreditation reaffirms and emphasizes the high-quality education offered by our College of Education," said JSU Provost Alisa Mosley, Ph.D. "I commend our faculty and staff for meeting the academic standards of a rigorous but necessary process. This significant accomplishment is a reflection of the academic excellence JSU is known to produce.

The COEHD began the seven-year CAEP accreditation process in 2016, now joining the ranks of 541 institutions with the same national accreditation. According to CAEP, more than 600 educator preparation providers participate in the accreditation system, including some previously accredited through former standards.

“Every higher education institution strives for some type of accreditation program to validate that their programs are effective, efficient, and meet the needs of their students that are graduating,” said Dean Jerri Haynes, Ed.D., College of Education and Human Development.

In spring 2023, the COEHD produced 199 postgraduate students and 119 undergraduate students with bachelor’s degrees. In the Fall of 2022, the college produced 186 postgraduate and 111 undergraduate students.

Jackson State University hosts “Blue Carpet Premiere” to celebrate new episode of The College Tour

Jackson State University rolled out the Hollywood-style blue carpet celebrating its new episode of The College Tour. The cast members were joined by administrators, faculty, staff and friends for an early screening prior to the official debut of season eight on Amazon Prime.

The 30-minute episode showcases what it’s like to be a JSU tiger through first-hand testimonials from the cast of eight students and one alum. The group shared their college experiences and why they chose to attend JSU. The university’s leadership is excited to see the institution’s story streamed on a large and reputable platform that will be used as a recruitment tool for prospective students.

Following the premiere screening, the cast participated in a Q&A session to answer questions about their experiences during the production and their time at JSU. Each cast member also participated in celebrity-style blue-carpet interviews to share a little insight into their lives.

Jackson State University and Google extend partnership with students and faculty for the Spring semester

Jackson State University and Google are furthering their partnership to help HBCU students access technology and training to prepare for the workforce. The latest collaboration includes Google donating a new line of Chromebooks to Jackson State CSET students so they can transition from school to professional life with a versatile laptop for work and play. The donation builds on JSU’s existing HBCU Career Readiness program with Google and the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, which helps prepare HBCU students for the workforce through digital skills training and career workshops.

Wilbur Walters, Ph.D., dean of the College of Science, Engineering, and Technology, cited the extended partnership with Google as an opportunity to engage students with cutting-edge technology like robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

“This partnership is another example of academic and corporate partners teaming to directly benefit our students at JSU,” said Walters. “This contribution represents the continuation of exciting opportunities for our students and faculty to engage and benefit from the amazing Google brand.”

JSU alum and distinguished



$1 million gift aims to inspire

ast year, Jackson State University received a $1 million gift from John Nau, president, and CEO of Silver Eagle Distributors, L.P., to establish the Brigadier General Robert Crear endowed scholarship for STEM and ROTC students.

The atrium in the JSU College of Science, Engineering and Technology building was also named after the retired brigadier general, who is a 1975 graduate of JSU.

Crear and his family have served 33 years on active duty worldwide. He has commanded and led soldiers and civilians at every level while serving in high-level leadership positions with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Crear is also president and CEO of the Crear Group LLC, a governmental relations and business development consulting firm in his native Vicksburg.

Nau said he donated out of his immense esteem for Crear's leadership and service to the nation. The longtime colleagues serve on the Board of Directors of the Friends of the Vicksburg National Military Park.

Reflecting on the donation, Crear asserted his pride in being a JSU alum and his intention to inspire.

"It is my hope that alumni will continue to set an example by giving personally and that those who have been successful will use their relationships with wealthy individuals and corporations to ask them to

share their prosperity with JSU," he said. Crear added that the $1 million gift was in honor of Dr. John A. Peoples, president emeritus of Jackson State University, for his vision to establish the ROTC program at JSU.

Crear shared that Peoples understood the high esteem that officers held in society, and he wanted to leverage that to enhance the reputation of Jackson State. Crear explained that being commissioned as an Army officer through the JSU ROTC Program allowed him to build relationships with influential people worldwide, including his friendship with Nau.

The university held its annual Day of Giving in July, enticing supporters to give back, and they answered the call helping the university bring in over $689,000. Still, Crear believes that number can be elevated.

"If more people know about JSU's great academic programs and the accomplishments of its students, alumni, staff, and faculty, they will want to give to the university," Crear said before adding that $1 million is an achievable goal for the Day of Giving in the near future.

"We alumni must continue to give back to 'Thee I Love', then spread the word about JSU in every way possible so that others will be inspired to give," he said.

Crear majored in mathematics at Jackson State and was commissioned as an officer through the Army ROTC Program. His numerous assignments include serving at the Pentagon and commanding two U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Divisions.

Additionally, he served as president of the Mississippi River Commission, having been appointed by the U.S. president and confirmed by the Senate, a first for an African American.

Alumni the jacksonian 36

Crear also served on the ground in Iraq as commander of Task Force Restore Iraqi Oil (TF RIO), an organization he established, trained, and led in 2003. TF RIO was responsible for a first-of-its-kind mission for the Department of Defense, which was first to extinguish all oil fires and then restore the oil infrastructure, production, export capability and the internal distribution system in Iraq.

In 2005, Crear organized and served as commander of Task Force Hope, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers $14.6 Billion infrastructure recovery and restoration effort in Mississippi and Louisiana after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. It was the largest disaster response and recovery operation in the history of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

In 2010, he was inducted into the JSU Alumni Hall of Fame. In June 2016, he was inducted into the Army's inaugural class of the National Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) Hall of Fame and the Jackson State University ROTC Hall of Fame. He gave the 2019 JSU Undergraduate Commencement Address. Crear is currently a member of the JSU Development Foundation, Inc.

Crear is married to his high school sweetheart and wife of 51 years, Reatha Hall Crear. Their union produced four children, all graduates

of JSU, Kristi Crear, human resource director for the Chief Digital and Artificial and Intelligence Office at the Pentagon; Kimberly CrearGregory, executive assistant to the Deputy Commanding General of the U.S. Army Contracting Command; Robert "Bo" Crear Jr., vice president of Operations; and Reginald Crear, vice president of Government Services at EJES Inc Architecture and Engineering Firm in Jackson, Mississippi.

The distinguished alum and his wife also have six grandchildren, including Kai Crear, a sophomore computer science major at JSU.
