Dear JSU Family,

It is an honor to serve as acting president of my alma mater, Jackson State University. I walked these halls and was mentored by great educators who shared their knowledge and wisdom with me during my time as a student. I am committed to upholding the Jackson State University mission, which is to serve our student body.

My goal is to continue to execute the University’s strategic plan and build off the successes that have already taken place. As you turn the pages of the Jacksonian magazine, you will be excited by what is on the horizon. When I think about what we offer as a destination of higher learning, I know that JSU is an institution of the future.

We are introducing our students to new industries, opportunities and collaborations, as exhibited in the new supply chain management degree that we offer. JSU alumnus David Malone is bringing diversity to this field. He is sharing his story to ensure that the disruptions that occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic become a relic of the past.

Our students are learning about cybersecurity in a day and age where technology is easily accessible and a significant part of our daily lives. JSU alumnus Edgar Johnson is enhancing this industry and expressing the need to protect our personal data and systems from vulnerabilities that can cause a severe disturbance if compromised. Edgar is making a difference in the cybersecurity realm with the education and opportunities he gained right here at JSU.

Our Center for Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Economic Development allows students to realize their dreams. It is a hub for transformation and exploration, preparing our students for a future that is driven by technology. I am incredibly proud that the Center offers a fellowship program that helps students define their skills, provides hands-on experience and connects them with top-tier organizations.

Additionally, this issue highlights our investments in the campus physical plant. Our on-going development projects are a testament to our goal of improving the quality of life for students, faculty and staff. A new dining space will match the growth and needs of our student body, in addition to the Plaza Project that will contain plenty of green space for our students to study outside and fellowship with one another. The Lynch Street Project will give an extra layer of security to ensure that our biggest assets – our students – remain safe.

All these significant accomplishments would not be possible without you – our JSU alumni. You have expressed your love for your ‘Dear old College’ home by significantly increasing your giving and support for our alma mater. I encourage you to continue to reach back and reach out to JSU and learn how you can leverage your ongoing support for the betterment of our students as they strive to make their indelible mark on the world.

Together with our stakeholders, we will continue to execute the JSU Elevate Strategic Plan, focused on Student Success, Academic Excellence, Increased Research Excellence and Enhancing the JSU Brand. These hallmarks will further cement JSU as an institution of the future.

Greetings JSU Tiger Alums,

Like Jackson State University, the future of the JSU National Alumni Association is brilliantly bright. I am honored to be president at such a special and rewarding time in our alma mater’s history and in the history of our organization. We are reaching new milestones and striving for more as we elevate together.

I want to thank each of you for donating to JSU, an institution that has given us so much. We hit a new high in our alumni giving rate, climbing to over 13% and still counting. I am proud of this accomplishment, but we have even further to go. We can be and should be the example of what giving looks like for our brother and sister HBCUs.

“Building Capacity. Strengthening Bonds” is something we can accomplish through collective support. As we move forward, we must harness the energy and influence we helped to create over the years. Let it fuel our intentions and desire for a productive tomorrow. Ensuring that you, our alumni base, are involved and engaged is a must as we recruit new alums, grow our presence and enhance our initiatives and undertakings.

All of us are a reflection of the power of a JSU education. This is an important element when helping to create future leaders. We must continue to prioritize our support for student programs and help to increase JSU’s enrollment.

Most of you know that I am an administrator in the Jackson Public School District. I am proud of the fact that over 65% of African American educators in JPS schools come from ‘Thee I Love.’ It shows the importance of education, creating pipelines and building partnerships. We must continue to create spaces of educational opportunities for our scholars.

We can do all these things, but we can do much more together. Again, I challenge you to become active nationally and in your local chapter. We must ensure that everyone knows about the work being done at Jackson State University. JSU’s name should resonate whenever brilliance is mentioned, and it is up to each of us to help make this a reality.

Thank you for all that you do. The work continues.

The COVID-19 pandemic posed significant challenges for supply chains globally. Multiple national lockdowns slowed or temporarily stopped the flow of raw materials and finished goods, and as a result, disrupted manufacturing.

In addition, the pandemic revealed previously unnoticed vulnerabilities and magnified pre-existing problems in the global supply chain.

Jackson State University alumnus David Malone, whose supply chain career spans over 40 years, has always been bothered by the lack of diversity in the field.

“I was fortunate to get in back in 1981 with a major technology company out of Boston. Luckily, I landed in one of the fastest growing and world changing professions,” he said. “I want HBCU students to have access to such a great profession.”

Malone is the founder and president of AcquireIQ, LLC, a supply chain consulting and training company focused on helping organizations expand their procurement and supply chain value proposition through the optimization of people, process and technology.

Malone credits his career with the opportunity to travel to Brazil, Germany, the Netherlands, France and China, to name just a few countries.

“One day I was standing on a mountain, a big hill overlooking Hong Kong in China. I had gone to China because of the company I worked for at the time, Avery Dennison, where I was the director of purchasing. We had a facility over there and there was a paper machine that mirrored the one we were going to buy at another facility,” he recalled.

“I was going to China first and then going to Indonesia to look at the machine itself. I was standing on that hill overlooking this vast city (Hong Kong), and I thought to myself, ‘How did I get here from Pickens, Mississippi, in Holmes County, growing up on a farm in the country, going to Jackson State after high school?’ My career led me there.”

Malone shared that the pandemic highlighted the need for video conferencing and other forms of communication in the supply chain management workplace.

“I worked for two years as the chief procurement officer for King County in Seattle, Washington, and that was all during the pandemic. I did that for two years all from home, remotely. We implemented a new procurement system, strategic sourcing, which is an advanced procurement technique that allows you to save millions of dollars, saving like four million dollars,” Malone said.

“We implemented a new travel management system called SAP Concur, where you can take care of all your travel bookings and approvals and expense reimbursement. I learned during the pandemic, that you can be really productive working remotely. That’s one of the biggest things going forward in this profession.”

Malone recently served as director of procurement and supply management for the city of St. Petersburg, Florida. He plans to move back to Mississippi and continue developing his company and educating people about supply chain management.

Malone played an integral role in bringing the supply chain management degree to JSU’s College of Business. He worked with Dean Fidelis Ikem, Ph.D., to develop the degree, create internship opportunities and establish an advisory board for it.

“I was able to recruit supply chain executives from Black and Decker, Microsoft, the Institute for Supply Management along with participation from the Supply Management Department head at Michigan State, which is rated No. 1 nationally for its supply management program. Dr. Ikem brought together that group along with the supply chain executive for Ingalls Shipbuilding and the JSU School of Business leaders to complete the advisory board.”

Certified by the Institution for Supply Chain Management, Malone plans to provide certification prep training for JSU students and people in the area. “We have had a talent shortage in supply chain management for over a decade. The growth of the profession simply has outpaced the talent pool, and I for one, want that gap in talent to be filled by our students,” he said.

Malone, a 1981 JSU graduate, said other than his three children, assisting his alma mater in establishing a supply chain management program is an accomplishment he is proud of.

“We talk about giving back and yeah, you can always do that with money, money is definitely needed, but knowledge is more important than that money because knowledge is what leads to money,” Malone shared.

“We talk about the need for representation and a lot of these companies and organizations have supplier diversity programs, but at the end of the day, you can have all the programs you want, but it’s the culture that really drives whether there is diversity in the supply business. Our folks need that knowledge, education and experience to bring opportunities to our communities.”

Trailblazing JSU alum ushers in new era of cybersecurity technology

Jackson State University Alumnus Edgar Johnson understands the urgency for society and the Black community to establish proactive efforts to secure their personal data and the potential vulnerabilities if that is overlooked.

“Nothing is 100% secure and the ability to think critically about how a network can be penetrated is ultimately the work of cybersecurity, to anticipate and effectively counteract,” he said.

A native of Chicago, Johnson arrived at JSU in the fall of 2014 with a mindset groomed for STEM, having participated in an iOS app development program.

After completing his freshman year, he began working closely with JSU as a cybersecurity researcher. During his senior year, Johnson along with another senior in the College of Science, Engineering and Technology participated in the IBM-sponsored hackathon “Blue Hack.” The Atlantabased project encouraged participants to develop within 30 hours an idea to solve a major world issue and produce, for example, innovative research about a disease or an app to promote human connectivity.

The outcome of the JSU students’ project earned high praise from IBM executives, so much so that lucrative job offers were extended to both. The duo developed a web application called HyperT, a clientserver computer program designed to identify qualified candidates for a software company based on data about their personality and technical skills.

After graduating from JSU, Johnson moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts, to work for IBM on its Watson Health project, a collaboration with

Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The project was designed to build on the relationship between humanity and technology.

After eight months working in Cambridge as a software developer, Johnson began work as a solution engineer on the top cybersecurity team within IBM. He began earning his master’s degree in cyber security risk management while continuing his full-time position with IBM.

“IBM made it a point to not only help me finance my education but to support me along the way and be flexible as I completed complex assignments”, praised Johnson.

While transitioning from graduate studies to full-time engineering Johnson was promoted to cyber security advisor and senior engineer, a move that emphasized the level of trust and investment IBM placed on his skillset.

For Johnson, nothing topped the opportunity for him to return home to Chicago while continuing to work in cybersecurity. Now serving as a senior cyber security architect within IBM, Johnson set his sights on his next opportunity, which is to educate the next generation of engineers.

Johnson pursued his first teaching opportunity to serve as a cyber security instructor for a certification course at Michigan State University College of Engineering. As part of the interview process, he was required to conduct a mock class setup in front of several other faculty members as well as endure several rounds of interviews. Johnson landed the job.

Jackson State University Chief Information Officer Deborah Dent, Ph.D., believes in the work Johnson and other JSU alumni in the field of cybersecurity.

“As the world grows in dependency on technology, seeing much of our daily activities are connected to some form of network, this creates the potential for bad actors to arise to expose network vulnerabilities,” she said. “The success of alumni like Edgar validates our sense of urgency as a department and ultimately as an institution. We must establish a sense

of urgency in equipping students with cutting-edge industry knowledge on how to effectively secure networks and move in sync with the growth of the cyberworld. We must continue to groom our students to serve as thought leaders and standard bearers for the world to come.”

Dent wants additional corporate partners to invest in equipping JSU students with the tools to effectively shape technology to complement human interest. Most recently, the Microsoft Techspark program invested in the JSU cybersecurity readiness program, which trains 100 JSU students to combat real-world cybersecurity security issues and provides them a practical understanding of what tools, logic and institutional knowledge are necessary to blossom within the field.

“Technology is not going away anytime soon, so it is imperative that we make friends with this new reality and come to understand how these processes work and equip the next generation so they can identify and resolve for the greater good the problems that do not work for society,” Dent said.

Johnson is thankful for the opportunity to discover and nurture his calling at JSU.

“This is what I am created to do and I’m extremely grateful for the ability to provide a sense of security many companies work tirelessly to obtain,” he said. “We must understand how to properly protect our information by first curbing our lack of attentiveness that leaves both our personal and professional infrastructures in vulnerable positions.”

e met in music appreciation class during the spring of 2015 and ended up sitting next to each other by chance. Our friendship began when Mykela lost her voice and the professor called on her. I immediately spoke up for her and began reading the passage to the class. As our friendship blossomed, we would walk to the dorms together since they were in the same direction. I was always hesitant when I reached my dorm, where we would part, and Mykela would walk the rest of the way to her dorm alone.

Our friendship flourished after an assignment from our professor. We were asked to attend and write about five live musical performances and we decided to go to them together. We grew to know each other even more while attending both class and the musical events. At the end of the semester, I asked Mykela to be my girlfriend and shockingly she said, “No.”

I didn't give up and we continued to talk all summer long. In October 2015, she agreed to a relationship and we became a couple.

Jamario and Mykela (Croft) Rankins

In 2020, I knew I wanted to propose to the love of my life but the COVID-19 pandemic complicated matters. I had to think of how I was going to surprise Mykela and keep it a secret. I thought it would be perfect to not only do it in Jackson where we met but also at the home of her relatives who are alumni of Jackson State from when it was known as Jackson College. I invited a few of her family members and mine to be there. I knew this would most likely make her cry when she saw our families standing together in support of our union.

I got down on one knee as she walked through the door. Our mothers were on either side of me holding “marry me” signs. I thought she would cry, but she was so shocked I was afraid she might pass out! She shook her head to say “Yes,” through her tears and our relatives gave us JSU apparel as congratulatory gifts!

Since then, we’ve been on so many adventures together. Our greatest adventure, that of husband and wife, began on Oct. 10, 2021. We are now living happily in Denver, Colorado.


It was August 2005 when Tramaine walked into a Tiger Pride Connection interview at Jackson State University. I was one of the student leaders responsible for interviewing potential candidates. After asking a series of questions to determine if he would be a good fit for the organization, a fellow member named Brandi said, “Ooooo, I think you all should go on a date!” and we both said, “Yeah, maybe.”

After the interview, we would see each other on campus often, and Tramaine would say, “We’re still going on our date, right?” and I would always reply, “Yep!” Tramaine and I seemed totally different from one another. I am outgoing and involved, and he is a bit reserved. He was a computer science major, and I was an English major. Something kept making me think about him: Was it his strong work ethic that he kept mentioning in the interview? Was it his greenish/gray eyes? Or was it just that I could tell he was raised right?

A few months later, I said to myself, “I’m going to call him and see what’s up.” I called his roommate and mutual friend, Jeremy Jones, and got Tramaine’s number, and called him. After a light conversation, I politely asked, “What’s up? Are we going on that date or what?” He said, “Of course!”

Tramaine picked me up from my apartment the following Saturday night, and we went to dinner at Logan’s Roadhouse and then to a movie. After an enjoyable first date, we saw each other for most of our college years. During that time, I pledged, joined several organizations and began to prepare for life after college.

I graduated in May of 2008, a year before Tramaine, and began my career as a higher education professional. Tramaine and I ended up breaking up around 2010. I began to focus on my career and graduate school.

Out of the blue, Tramaine called and invited me to attend a Mississippi Braves baseball game.

We started dating again, and I got pregnant with our first child in 2012. In December 2013, Tramaine threw a surprise party, invited my mother and all our closest friends and asked me to marry him. We married in March 2015. We have three handsome sons: Tramaine Jr., 8; Titan, 5; and Tristen, 2.

I was a freshman music education major at Jackson State University who jokingly told everyone I only came to college to find a husband. Cortney was a sophomore psychology major. I think we crossed paths only as members of the Sonic Boom of the South Marching Band.

He looked good (tall, dark, handsome, etc.) but he was on the drumline, so I assumed he had to be a jerk and we only talked once that year. In 2010, we were both section leaders who faced similar obstacles and had to rebuild our respective sections. We became good friends during that year.

After learning about his character and seeing how he directed his section, I thought, “if I only had the opportunity to be in a relationship with someone like this,” but the thought always stopped there. That opportunity came in 2011, so I “shot my shot.”

Instead of jumping into a relationship, we took time to learn more about each other. Through fellowship, growth and like-mindedness, we became best friends.

In 2013, Cortney and I began our official relationship, but it was shortlived because he enlisted in the Marines and later went to boot camp. The separation strengthened our bond and provided the foundation for everything else to come. After prayer and counsel, we were privately married Sept.17, 2014 in North Carolina.

We are now eight years strong with three darling children. Before the kids, the degrees, the promotions, the struggles, the marriage, the relationship or the “shot shooting,” we were good friends. it takes a friend to keep the vows of a marriage.

I had no idea that God would take my freshman-year husband joke seriously. But I am proud to say I found my husband at THEE Jackson State University.

They say imagination is key to advancing the future. Well, so is Jackson State University. The HBCUs Center for Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (CIEED) is helping students turn ideas into tangible products and services. In other ways, it serves as an engine and elevator for enterprise and community development.

Joseph Whitaker, Ph.D., vice president of the Division of Research and Economic Development, says the CIEED successes are many, including the critical impact on attracting new students to the campus and preparing them for an ever-changing world of work.

“Through the center, tech companies also offer internships as well as training and coding experiences complementary to didactic work done in the classroom. We continue to prepare our students and community base for a future tech-driven global ecosystem by providing entrepreneurship training as well as access to the knowledge capital needed to successfully assess, understand and navigate the landscape,” Whitaker said.

The CIEED held its ribbon-cutting ceremony in 2020 on the second floor of the H.T. Sampson Library. Since its opening, the center has won a multitude of awards while serving as a collaborative space and incubator for ideas whether student, faculty, or community innovator or entrepreneur..

“It has been awesome and rewarding to see the excitement of students as they quickly recognize and adopt the resources, technology and opportunities,” shared Almesha L. Campbell, Ph.D., assistant vice president of the Division of Research and Economic Development. “It is especially pleasing to see them take initiative in immersing themselves in learning all they can to complement work in the classroom.”

When one enters the center, its uniqueness is on full display. Visitors are greeted by a bold and vibrant mural designed by Dipannita Saha, a JSU student turned alumna. Black and red gaming stations are setup throughout, acknowledging the global eSports market is a lucrative industry valued slightly over 1.38 billion dollars.

“Unlike many years ago, gaming skills — both in terms of design and operations — are now considered critical to advancing the future of human-machine interface, defense tactical autonomy and systems engineering initiatives,” explained Campbell, who also serves as the director of the CIEED.

“Remote machine operations, unmanned aircraft, spacecraft and underwater operations and associated visualization capabilities will be major future skills that will be invaluable to our students as they prepare for the future of work,” she added, magnifying the transitional skills gained from gaming.

Gaming isn’t the only offering CIEED provides. Enhanced learning experiences using virtual reality headsets, augmented reality, computers, varieties of software, 3-D printers and more are available to nurture users’ ingenious minds.

Data shows that technology like 3-D printing will continue to influence industries, shape culture and impact the economy. A 2022 article by says 3-D printing will revolutionize the world of medicine, localize more manufacturing, and spark a creative renaissance.

A $400,000 grant from the Mississippi’s governor’s office helped the CIEED launch a project to infuse virtual reality (VR) into the STEM curriculum. So far, they have developed VR academic programming for chemistry, physics, meteorology, engineering and communicative disorders.

JSU senior Kaymen Russell is a CIEED Innovation Fellow, a program that gives students a more hands-on experience and helping them drill down and refine their skillset. Fellows have access to high-level industry partners such as HP, Microsoft, Google, and Entergy.

Campbell shared that the program offers tangible training and professional development for enhancing career trajectory. It also allows fellows the opportunity to work in teams across disciplines to solve major problems through collaborations and the consideration of multiple perspectives.

Additionally, students are able to learn technology transfer and commercialization through pre-accelerator programs such as the EnRICH healthcare focused pre-accelerator program and the NSF I-Corps MidSouth Hub. The Center also sponsors students to participate in fellowship programs such as with ERDCWERX and AUTM.

“The program’s diversity engages students in the importance of cultural and linguistic competencies in work environments while helping students develop problem solving and critical thinking skills through project-based activities. Fellows also refine their leadership skills as they help manage the CIEED’s daily operations,” Campbell explained.

Russell, a biology pre-physical therapy major, plans to mesh the knowledge gained as a fellow with her career aspirations.

“I hope to take what I’ve learned about 3-D printing and laser printing and incorporate it into the medical field,” she said. “While I want to be a physical therapist, I would love to be able to contribute to the field of medicine by being able to create and test new prosthetics designs with the 3-D printed models.”

Even further, Russell said that she loves how the CIEED provides resources to students, which allows them to bring their ideas to fruition for free.

“For example, a few of the students designed their own clothing lines and shoes with the software available in the center. I was even able to partner

with my coworkers, who are graphic design majors, to design a shirt for the Innovation Fellows,” she said.

High school students are also exposed to the wonders of the CIEED. The development of the Young Innovators Program (YIP) brings high schoolers and middle schoolers to the center during the summer, where they are immersed in all that is offered.

To date, the center has supported more than 150 students and Campbell noted that strong partnership with academic summer bridge programs as helping to drive the success of the YIP.

Overall, Campbell said the long-term goals are to expand communications and tech resources to ensure a global reach. Additionally, build and strengthen the start-up ecosystem, with supporting maker-space and prototype development and refinement capacity.

“The center has brought national attention to JSU in many respects,” she shared. “A real joy for me is the continued engagement of students after they graduate, and the notes about how the center has positively impacted them personally and professionally.”

This is the way we grow: JSU invests in its physical plant

Michael Bolden, executive director of Campus Operations, said Jackson State University's growth is relative to the future. Bolden manages three critical JSU units: Facilities and Construction Management, the Division of Auxiliary Enterprises, and the Department of Public Safety.

In summary, Bolden is responsible for touching a large part of the campus that influences the comfortability of students' learning environment.

"All of the things that allow our students to grow and compete in this global market has to do on some level with a highly-functioning facility," Bolden said. "We must continue modernizing our campus, including its structures and amenities, to compete in higher education."

As society advances and evolves, so does the expectation and needs of students. First impressions are especially important, added Bolden. This is why improving campus aesthetics and sustainability, part of the JSU Elevate Strategic Plan, is also a large part of the executive director's responsibility.

Investing in JSU's physical plant is helping the University retain and expand its status as one of the most attractive urban campuses in the country while making the necessary changes and additions to boost the quality of life for students, faculty and staff.

Those investments include:

A.) Lynch Street Project

B.) Dining Hall Expansion

C.) The Plaza Project

D.) New Residence Hall

A. Lynch Street Project

"Jackson State University's growth pattern is headed downtown. It is critical to the trajectory of the campus," Bolden said. "One of the aims of the Lynch Street project is to increase safety around the circumference of the campus."

JSU will enhance the Lynch Street gateway into the campus to improve safety and transportation to existing facilities. Future planned projects will extend the campus eastward along the Lynch Street corridor to shorten the distance between the main campus and the downtown area located east of the elevated railroad tracks.

In the past, the railroad tracks have been a barrier between the JSU campus and downtown. However, streetscaping and pedestrian improvements to the three connecting arteries – Capitol, Pearl and Pascagoula Streets – will eliminate the illusion of separation, which is more a matter of perception than physical distance.

The Lynch Street project will also include beautification and pathways for pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicles.

B. Dining Hall Expansion Project

This project will consist of a new 30,000-plus square foot dining facility north of the existing JSU Student Center in an area that is currently a parking lot. The new facility will feature a state-of-the-art kitchen and more efficient food prep/storage. It will create a modern and open concept that will allow students, faculty and staff a more spacious and comfortable dining experience, alleviating current space deficiencies.

"The new dining hall will be strategically located in the center of campus and attached to the student center. It allows us to extend dining in the same location as retail dining. So that gives students multiple dining options in a central location," Bolden said.

C. Plaza Project

With the approval of the Mississippi Intuitions of Higher Learning and clearance from the States Department of Archives and History, demolition of the Charles F. Moore Building commenced in 2022.

The facility had major structural issues, which included foundation, envelope and roof deficiencies. Based on the extensiveness of the

Feature Story the jacksonian 20

repair needs and costs, it was in JSU's best interest to demolish the facility.

A plaza area and additional green space will replace the existing facility, contributing to "quality exterior open spaces [that] lead to better student life experiences and additional learning opportunities."

"The pandemic reminded us of the importance of having a safe green environment to gather and interact, so with this in mind, we wanted to create an outdoor space where students can study and fellowship," Bolden explained. "It will also serve as an outdoor event space for entertainment and academic programming."

D. New Residence Hall Project

Approximately 30% of the student population generally select campus housing. Based on the University's goal of increasing enrollment by 5% over the next five years, JSU's Residence Life anticipates a need to provide space for up to an estimated 2,700 students.

"Higher education is a competitive market. Students are looking for a certain type of facility for housing. This new residence hall is intended to fit the needs of today's students," Bolden said. "It will include more communal spaces and suite-style living quarters and not just beds in rooms."

This construction project will design and build a 600-bed residential hall to help house JSU's increasing on-campus student population. Preplanning is underway.

he JSU College of Business offers a new entrepreneurship minor to the Jackson State University community after two years of preparation and development. The minor accompanies their existing entrepreneurship major offering, and will give students the opportunity to explore entrepreneurship while remaining true to their preferred area of study at JSU.

The new minor comes, in part, from a $30,000 VentureWell Faculty Grant received in 2020 by Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship

Sharon Simmons, Ph.D., and Assistant Professor of Business Law

The professors worked to develop the minor and curriculum that aims to bring students from STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering,

Arts, Music and Math) into the College of Business to take 18 credits as a minor so they can learn about business, innovation and what it takes to launch a product or build a business.

“When you offer entrepreneurship to the non-business majors, you can have a bigger impact on the students. There is value in the thinking that you get from an entrepreneurship degree, such as the soft skills of learning and understanding the whole organization, learning how to network with individuals and learning how to make decisions for yourself and a team,” said Simmons, who also serves as the advisor for the student-led Society for Entrepreneurs organization.

The grant was designed to help fund and support faculty with innovative ideas to create new, or transform existing courses and programs to assist students with developing novel, STEM-based inventions and ultimately gaining the necessary entrepreneurial skills

needed to bring their ideas to the market.

“Jackson State has a strong entrepreneurship culture. You speak to the average student and ask them what they want to do and their response is like, ‘I want to do my own thing. I want to be my own boss and handle my own start-up,’” Simmons said.

The curriculum is designed to build students holistically and prepare them for higher income opportunities by equipping them with a diverse academic palette and a wide range of skills, knowledge and specialized connections that are unique to the new minor, thanks to its integrative and multidisciplinary approach.

“We have other students who are in engineering who are trying to launch new products and they’re trying to build businesses around that, but they don’t have the fundamentals of marketing, entrepreneurial finance or how to talk to investors and which investors to talk to,” Simmons said.

Students will be exposed to a variety of classmates stemming from various programs and majors across the campus with the goal to increase networking capabilities that branch out beyond the classroom. An essential part of the curriculum involves students exploring topics such as feasibility studies, owning or leasing buildings for your business and even hiring or contracting employees.

“There will be a creativity and innovation course where you’re learning about the mindset needed to develop a business model and how to build a team, which includes the customers and investors. You also take an entrepreneurial finance class where you’ll learn when to go to friends and family, the bank or other investors and what they would want to see from a numbers perspective and a quality perspective,” Simmons added.

Additionally, she shared that students will get a focused conversation on managing innovation. They’ll learn the steps of creating a business model and raising funding and managing their technological or art innovation, and how it looks to manage it. Managing includes how to set pricing, penetrate the market, looking at the competition and how to adapt.

"Our entrepreneurship minor for non-business majors allows entrepreneurship education to reverberate throughout campus to meet students in their diverse academic disciplines. By doing so, students will possess the entrepreneurship and business acuity to further their innovative ideas to solve problems and drive economic growth," said McFarland.

JSU alumnus Richard Bradley, a Mississippi entrepreneur and philanthropist, said that an entrepreneur adaptation is vital to thriving in any market. Bradley graduated from the business administration and marketing program at Jackson State.

“Adaptation is one of the most important things in the field and expertise of entrepreneurship. Even though you may be located in a certain city or a certain state, you have to make sure you’re keeping up with the economy and how things are changing and be able to

adapt,” Bradley said before expressing his thoughts about JSU’s new entrepreneurship minor.

“I’m so glad and excited that the department is offering this new curriculum. It should be wonderful for the students that are coming in. I think it gives students an opportunity to understand that when you’re dealing with entrepreneurship there are keys to being successful,” Bradley said. “This minor will show students the dedication, perseverance, consistency and wherewithal needed to understand that times change, innovation is real, and you have to be innovative and creative when trying to be successful.”

In the summer of 2022, Jackson State University received a $50,000 donation from the Charles Schwab Foundation to create the Center of Excellence on Breastfeeding and Early Nutrition for Black women in Mississippi.

The vision for the center materialized after three years of research and grant writing on the importance of early nutrition as a major factor in healthy infants. The Center will be housed in the Department of Behavioral and Environmental Health (BEH) within the College of Health Sciences (CHS), a CEPH Accredited School of Public Health.

“Our goal in creating this center is to focus on several areas that will support statewide maternal and child health initiatives aimed at improving infant health. One is education and training, the other is advocacy for breastfeeding and the third is research that will make meaningful contributions to improve breastfeeding and early nutrition outcomes for infants in Mississippi and beyond. We hope to serve as a repository for research and best practices around breastfeeding and early nutrition in Mississippi,” said CHS Department Chair Mary Shaw, Ph.D.

Shaw explained that the center’s three-year grant is funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The project was the early vision of Mohammad Shahbazi, Ph.D., former interim dean of the School of Public Health. Many couples first welcoming a child find the male is inclined to allow the woman to facilitate child-bearing techniques, including breastfeeding, due to a lack of knowledge about how to properly assist during pregnancy and post birth.

The center will prioritize spousal support groups and courses that inform Black men in particular on what the process of breastfeeding entails, diffusing misconceptions and identifying a clear plan of action to change the dynamic of child-bearing from one that is unilateral to a collaborative effort.

“One of the unique pieces that we're hoping [will] come out of this is having men, Black men in particular, understand and have knowledge about breastfeeding in order to be informed as to what it takes to support

a woman entering into that cycle of motherhood, and the other options that are available to them in those very early months of nutrition.” said Shaw. Earlier last year the CHS launched its ‘MomNBabyEXCEL’ brand with a virtual conference on breastfeeding and early nutrition in Mississippi. The conference sought to increase awareness and knowledge about breastfeeding, early nutrition challenges that mothers and fathers encounter and opportunities to support/advocate for mothers and their families.


Typically within early childhood family dynamics, the mother is primarily seen as being in charge of the intimate nurturing and nourishment of the child and the father being the protector and/or provider. While the technical understanding of this dynamic has valid reasoning, studies have shown, contrary to popular belief, that men, who participate in the early stages of nourishment and engage in learning about the process women endure to provide sufficient nourishment, eliminate any perceived psychological, mental, emotional and/or physical stressors that may strain the mother’s ability to nurture effectively.

JSU DrPH student Austine Onyia is currently studying within the department of epidemiology and biostatistics, and he has worked closely with Shaw to ensure the program curriculum is undergirded in public health research that identifies the benefits of male contribution and determines the gaps in understanding. With over 25 years of experience in public health having practiced in multi-ethnic settings, including Nigeria and Belize, Onyia served as a guest speaker at the MomNBabyEXCEL conference.

His segment focused on the male’s perspective on breastfeeding support and interrogating the pathways for active engagement. Onyia succinctly summarized the "why" behind male contribution toward this pivotal stage of child development and ultimately toward the strength of the family unit in one word: bond.

“One of the most important aspects of early childhood nourishment is bonding and that bond is two in one. It is bonding with the baby and bonding with the mother, creating that family bond between the three,”

JSU Community the jacksonian 24

said Onyia. “It [bonding] happens more effectively when the man is engaged and usually at that early stage, if a man is not engaged, it shows through the baby and the mother through signs of physical and often psychological stress.”

Onyia suggests that early childhood bonding between the father and the family can serve as a preventive measure against what recent statistical evidence shows to be an increasing problem among women within early stages of motherhood, postpartum depression. Postpartum depression often is rooted in feelings of helplessness and/or lack of support in the early stages of motherhood, which can potentially act as an emotional trigger for women. However, it is with the understanding and the education of the male’s contribution toward the process that conditions can be wholly avoided.

Based on participant input during the conference, Onyia was also able to gain a deeper understanding into the social stigmas that often strain the relationship and level of comfort between the mother and father, one of those stigmas being breastfeeding in public. Often, the sexualization of women historically has placed barriers around their ability to nurture their child in public places where a private setting may not be immediately accessible. Some men who may lack understanding of this necessity can create stressors within the body and mind of the woman, causing her to feel unprotected.

“If the man is comfortable with it, the woman is more likely to be relaxed about it, and she will have the comfort to know she’s protected and safe to proceed with nourishment,” said Onyia. “She’s not going to be so much worried about any other opinion that is there as long as the father is understanding and protective.”

Shaw shared that with African American women touting the lowest rate of

breastfeeding nationally, innovative research focused on Mississippians will guide transdisciplinary efforts to address clinical, psychosocial, education, economic, environmental and policy factors that impact breastfeeding and early nutrition outcomes for mothers and their infants.

A notable portion of the MomNBabyEXCEL brand will encompass increasing awareness and knowledge about breastfeeding and early nutrition among fathers and/or male partners in relationships with women who are breastfeeding or attending to the early nutrition needs of their infants.

Shaw explained that pregnancy and postpartum care experiences for women must include family support. Support encompasses being knowledgeable and equipped to support the needs of women during a very challenging time period inclusive of prenatal, delivery and postpartum care.

“We’re excited about the male initiative. There are few programs out there that educate men so that they have the knowledge and skills to support breastfeeding and early nutrition for infants and even become an advocate for it,” said Shaw.

The CHS has formed several key relationships in creating the center, including participating in the HBCU Consortium of African American Public Health Programs and the HBCUs advancing Maternal and Child Health Initiatives to achieve health equity.

The center also intends to provide unique opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students to actively participate in MCH-focused projects.

Miss JSU 2022-23: NAOMI HARRIS

Classification: Senior

Major: Elementary Education and Teaching

Hometown: Memphis, TN

Hobbies: Painting, Reading, Spending Quality Time with Friends and Family, Traveling, Working Out, Watching Documentaries and DJing

What would be one word to describe the epitome of Miss Jackson State University?

I remember Destiny and I watched Destiny from high school because I wasn't here on campus. Just seeing her Instagram, seeing her coronation, I was just in such awe. Then arriving on campus and seeing Naysa reign so gracefully, I was left again in awe. So I think the expression is just ‘awe’ because we embody a high class, well rounded servant mindset as black women. How can you not just be in awe?

What are some things that you do outside of the office to help you find peaceful moments? How do you de-stress from being a queen? This must be so silly, but my favorite part of the day, I make sure I do this every day, is lie in my bed in silence and look toward the ceiling. I love those moments because I'm a sister, I'm a daughter, I'm a queen, I'm a friend, I'm a line sister, I'm a girlfriend, I'm everything in most spaces. But at this exact moment until I fall asleep, I'm just me. Also I love talking to my family. They're not here to support me physically, but I love talking to them and getting all those encouraging words to fill me back up.

What brought you to Jackson State University?

What compelled you to get involved in student leadership opportunities?

The aura of being on campus, everything felt inviting and family oriented. Everybody was just so welcoming. The hotspot was so lit. As soon as I got done with my tour, I applied for early admission because I already had my test score. The rest was history as far as getting involved on campus.

I have been involved in student leadership since I was in sixth grade. But I had every intention of not being a student leader when I came to college because it had worn me out in high school. I was shaping a community as well as shaping and building school traditions.

I told myself, “Yeah, I'm not gonna do this,” but eventually I felt that something was missing from my collegiate experience, a part of who I am, so I got involved during my sophomore year and the rest was history.

Fried Chicken Wednesday or Fish Friday? Fried Chicken Wednesday, every single time.

What do you think makes Jackson State's community unique?

The love, I tell people every single time, we are THEE I LOVE for a reason. There’s no other love like a Jackson State love affair, that's what I've received from the first day to this very moment. I can walk into any room and feel the love in general and specific moments. People whom I have never met are so intentional in making sure that I'm okay. Intentional in ensuring that I'm prepared for the steps that I need to take to get to the next place in life.

What would be your favorite JSU line dance? Whistle While You Work. That line dance will always be my favorite one. I feel like it's my favorite because we made it a competition our sophomore year to see who can do it the longest because it's a

pretty long dance. It’s funny and ironic that Halle Coleman, former Miss JSU, reigned supreme as the longest Whistle While You Work dancer.

What is your favorite tradition or custom JSU, traditional or custom?

I feel like my favorite custom that we have is Yard Fest. It’s that time when everybody is returning back to old stomping grounds for homecoming. You connect with everybody who graduated. It just creates this atmosphere of just so much love with the current JSU meeting the old JSU and we're all there congregating together for the THEE I LOVE.

Has any other Miss JSU had a ROTC program background?

No, I believe I would be the first Miss JSU to serve with a military background by way of the ROTC program.

With the skills and the experience obtained in a military program? Where do you see overlap in your role as Miss Jackson State?

I would say ROTC definitely prepares me for Miss JSU. The military has taught me a discipline that's just like unbreakable, it has taught me to live life in structure as well as with mental resilience. All of those things aid in the productivity of both myself and my royal court. I feel like everybody in life should go through some form of basic training, everybody will be such better people because of it. It teaches you how to be a better person and it's like once you learn those skills,you can't unlearn it, they stick.

return and relive those moments with their classmates and friends and with us. It's so great seeing different eras of JSU in one moment and seeing how we all enjoy and share our love for Jackson State.

What are your plans after graduation?

I want to go to Columbia University in New York and earn my master's in broadcast journalism. After that, I plan to work in the news reporting field. Right now, I do entertainment reporting for Tiger Report, which I want to dig deeper into as I elevate my career.

How would you say JSU has prepared you for the next chapter of your life?

JSU has taught me how to be a go-getter. We often never realize how intimidating life can be until we're actually put in that space. When I first got to JSU, I was confined in this box, didn't take many risks, and would just sit in my room and not interact. JSU taught me how to be ok with being uncomfortable and how to embrace uncertainty.

How would you describe the JSU experience to aspiring students?

The JSU experience is a journey that you should embrace. You grow to love it so much as you spend more time here, learning the culture, getting involved and meeting friends. It's a journey that is going to progress in ways you could never imagine.

What are the most important aspects of being a JSU ambassador?

Why did you want to be Mister JSU?

I believe in purpose, and I felt like it was God-led. I feel like this is something God wanted me to do, and I have a heart for seeing people succeed. If I could be an inspirational visual representation or go to schools and speak to students in the Jackson community or my peers, that's what I want to do.

What is your platform?

My platform is “My Turn.” It was inspired by the rapper Lil' Baby's "My Turn" album. It means what are you willing to face to claim it's your turn? Whether it's procrastination, self-doubt, lack of confidence, laziness, whatever it is, there is always something we can defeat to reach our ultimate purpose. One of my favorite quotes is, 'Embrace your obstacles so that they can contribute to your success story.'

Describe one of your favorite JSU traditions and why?

My favorite JSU tradition is Yard Fest because it's great seeing the alumni

I would say being genuine. You can't do something if you don't have a genuine connection to it. Being a JSU ambassador can be time consuming. If somebody is in this position and trying to pour into people without genuine intention, their fuel will run low. So, the most important aspect of being a JSU ambassador is being genuine and authentic to this position and yourself.

Explain why you will always love your "Dear ole college home."

I will always love my 'dear ole college home' because it contributed to the Joshua that many people know today. I'm still growing, but I wasn't always as brave as I am now, and I will always love my dear ole college home because it has helped me grow personally, academically and professionally. It has helped me grow in so many areas. I am proud of the growth that Jackson State has afforded me. Many people don't heed the school's motto (Challenging minds and changing lives), but I've been challenged, and my life has been changed. It may sound cliché, but I honestly believe that. I'm not the same Joshua I was my freshman year because it helped me grow and step out of my comfort zone on so many levels.

day. I like to keep the same people around me. I'm such a stickler for routine and habit. However, when you get in leadership change is inevitable. If nothing changes, nothing changes. I knew that when I accepted the call to leadership, there were things that needed to change so that Jackson State could be the best campus that it could be. My platform is geared towards creating a campus culture that we can be proud of. So inevitably things have to improve for that to happen. So I think that my approach to change as a leader is just leaning into it, embracing it. There's some things that are gonna change whether they have your permission to change or not.

What impact did JSU have on you becoming the 76th SGA president?

JSU gave me the confidence and ambition to dream and pursue a position like Student Government Association president. I’ve experienced rigorous coursework, leadership roles, community service, and a lot of SGA and CAB events Jackson State. This has instilled characteristics such as leadership, responsibility, ultimately pushing me to be my best self. This is just one of the many amazing opportunities JSU has afforded me. Before Jackson State, I was somewhat shy and definitely afraid to speak up for myself. JSU has forced me outside of my comfort zone.

Explain why you’ll always bleed blue and white.

What brought you to Jackson State University? What compelled you to get involved in student leadership opportunities?

I decided on Jackson State two weeks before I was set to graduate high school because a recruiter convinced me to do a campus tour. I ended up falling in love with the campus, and I knew that I'd be well taken care of here. Looking back, as I was going into my senior year, getting ready to graduate in the spring was the best decision I could have made for myself. I got involved in leadership first by having great role models in leadership as a freshman. I wanted to carry myself in the way that Nassa (Former Miss JSU), or Jordan (Former SGA President) did, who was SGA president when I was a freshman. When I was a freshman I was always really happy just being in service. So that's what pulled me into involvement in SGA specifically.

What is your relationship with change? How must a leader approach the idea of change?

I actually think that being in leadership has developed my relationship to change greatly. Madison, as a person, is such a creature of habit. I like the same things. I keep the same food every

I’ll always bleed blue and white because of the impact JSU has left within me. Jackson State University has equipped me with all the tools to succeed in the world after college and the confidence to chase my biggest dreams. My gratitude for this university will allow me to do nothing less than support my school as an alumna, share my positive experiences, and prayerfully continue the family legacy of students to attend and graduate from Jackson State University in future years.

Describe your leadership experience during your tenure as SGA president.

I am so grateful for my experience as a student leader at JSU. Serving as SGA president has been both fulfilling and challenging but ultimately well worth it. The excitement and anticipation around being back on campus has really helped boost student morale. As a result, my tenure has been less complicated. I also have an amazing administration and team of advisors that make my life a whole lot easier. My advisors understand I am a student first so they make juggling everything else a breeze.

JSU to Host 2023 Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders this summer

Jackson State University is proud to announce its selection as an Institute Partner for the 2023 Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders. Beginning in mid-June, Jackson State University will host 25 of Africa’s bright, emerging business leaders for a six-week Leadership Institute sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. JSU was the first institution in Mississippi to host the Mandela Washington Fellowship last year.

The Mandela Washington Fellowship, the flagship program of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI), empowers young African leaders through academic coursework, leadership training, mentoring, networking, professional opportunities and local community engagement. YALI was

created in 2010 and supports young Africans as they spur economic growth and prosperity, strengthen democratic governance and enhance peace and security across Africa.

Since 2014, the U.S. Department of State has supported nearly 5,800 Mandela Washington Fellows from across Sub-Saharan Africa to develop their leadership skills and foster connections and collaboration with U.S. professionals. The cohort of Fellows hosted by Jackson State University will be part of a group of 700 Mandela Washington Fellows hosted at 28 educational institutions across the United States.

JSU College of Business celebrates 50th anniversary

Jackson State University’s College of Business celebrated its 50th anniversary. The college commemorated decades of success with a kick-off reception noting significant milestones and the thousands of graduates it has produced.

The college was authorized July 1, 1972, and provides a management education to a diverse student body, including those with historically disadvantaged backgrounds. It delivers its academic programs through two departments – Business Administration and Accounting, Finance, and Entrepreneurship.

These two entities became known as the School of Business and Economics, with an approximate enrollment of 1,000 students. In 1995, Jackson State University’s School of Business became the sixth

school of business at an HBCU to earn accreditation from the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The COB remains in the six percent of business schools worldwide, with the AACSB accreditation.

“Since its founding, the College of Business has embarked on a more than exciting journey,” stated Fidelis Ikem, Ph.D., dean of the College of Business. “As I reflect over the pioneering work of the faculty and staff over the last half century, I find many accomplishments leading us to this milestone.”

Ikem was appointed the eighth dean of the College of Business in July 2019. Under his leadership, the COB continues to grow. This fall, the college will offer a new Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Supply Chain Management, including the two new online degrees in Bachelor of Business Administration and a Master of Public Accountancy.

JSU's Jerri Haynes wants to reimagine College of Education and Human Development

Jerri Haynes, Ed.D., is the new dean of the College of Education and Human Development. She is joining JSU following her time at Tennessee State University, where she served as dean and professor of the College of Education, increasing their enrollment by 15 percent in her first year.

She has dedicated nearly three decades of her life to higher education. She plans to continue paving the path for academic excellence, encouraging a diverse and supportive community as well as facilitating school districts and other educational agencies.

“I am looking forward to collaborating with an innovative and thriving team of individuals at JSU throughout the college, university, and system who are working to transform the lives of students, faculty, staff, and stakeholders. It is an opportunity to reimagine COEHD, an amazing

opportunity with unlimited possibilities,” said Haynes. “Critical to my success in these efforts have been my knowledge, experience, skills, and disposition of programs, instructional pedagogy, assessments, and partnerships to connect diverse perspectives to develop programs that consist of rigor relevance, and relationships with flexibility and autonomy to meet all stakeholders’ needs.”

Haynes has an extensive amount of curriculum and management leadership, including experiences developing new courses, certificates, and credentialing programs.

The proud mother of two credits her success to a strong foundation of progressive leadership and diverse experiences that played an integral role in her becoming a culturally and linguistically responsive leader.

JSU's College of Education announces inaugural class of Mississippi Teacher Residency program

Jackson State University’s College of Education and Human Development (COEHD) welcomed 15 graduate students into their first Mississippi Teacher Residency (MTR) program this fall. The MTR program aims to prepare educators for teaching in geographical critical shortage areas.

To celebrate the inaugural group of educators, the COEHD, MDE, and the Jackson Public School District (JPS) celebrated the students’ admittance with a signing day similar to when prospective athletes commit to a sports organization.

In December 2021, JSU received $2,038,589 of a $9.8 million grant from MDE, to address elementary and special education teacher shortages. The program is supported by the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund.

JSU is in partnership with JPS. Each institution is partnered with one or more school districts experiencing critical teacher shortages. The goal is to ensure all Mississippi students have access to licensed, diverse, and effective teachers.

The MTR program is designed to provide holistic support for aspiring teachers seeking a degree in

elementary and special education. Tommy Nalls, Ed.D., director of Recruitment said the MTR program has resulted in JPS certifying 34 teachers in the last four years, simultaneously decreasing vacancies in the district and improving teacher retention. According to Nalls, an estimated 65% of teachers working for JPS have a JSU background.

“We’re talking about innovation in the making expanding internship to one year where students take theory and apply it in a real classroom setting using the gradual release model. We’re talking about school districts taking their challenges in finding qualified teachers and turning them into opportunities where candidates are right there in the school district," said Jerri Haynes, Ph.D., dean of the College of Education and Human Development.

"It’s unbelievable where we are now in need of qualified teachers and where we can be in the next five years with a pipeline of qualified teachers. We’re talking about unlimited possibilities, and that’s what we need to stay focused on to eliminate teacher shortages in rural and urban school districts.”

JSU students named HBCU Scholars for White House Initiative

Jackson State University students Brikala Roach and Kelsei Scott have been selected as HBCU Scholars for the White House Initiative on Advancing Educational Equity, Excellence, and Economic Opportunity through Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The newly announced ninth cohort recognizes 86 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students for their academic accomplishments, leadership, civic engagement and much more.

“I am so excited and happy to be chosen as an HBCU Scholar. It’s a blessing to be representing JSU. It feels great to see that my hard work and service do not go unnoticed. I hope to gain resources and opportunities that I can bring to my school, as well as networking with others,” said Roach, a health, physical education and recreation major with a 3.7 GPA.

The HBCU scholars were chosen from a competitive pool of over 350 students. Applications also required the signature of their HBCU president or designated

HBCU faculty, adding a level of prestige to this application process.

“I feel blessed to be selected as a White House Initiative HBCU Scholar. This is a monumental accomplishment for me, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be a participant in this program,” said Scott, a junior with a 3.3 GPA majoring in journalism and media studies. “I hope to gain a range of experience in different fields and connect with other HBCU scholars during my time.”

Over the academic year, HBCU Scholars will serve as ambassadors of the White House Initiative on HBCUs. Training and cross-university networking opportunities will be available. Scholars will also have the chance to work on issues specifically related to the HBCU community and participate in national and regional events with professionals from a wide range of disciplines.

JSU Alumnus Judge Carlton Reeves, J.D., makes history as first Black man to serve as Chair of U.S. Sentencing Commission

JSU alumnus Judge Carlton Reeves, J.D., was confirmed as chair of the U.S. Sentencing Commission following President Biden’s nomination in May 2022.

Reeves makes history as the first Black man to serve as chair of the U.S. Sentencing Commission.

The U.S. Senate confirmed a group of seven bipartisan members to serve on the U.S. Sentencing Commission Friday, August 5, providing the independent judicial branch agency with a voting quorum for the first time in more than three years.

“I am honored to have been nominated to this position by the President and to have been confirmed by the Senate,” commented Reeves.

Reeves shared that the criminal justice system has some troubling divisions that have emerged among

courts on sentencing issues during the years the Commission lacked a quorum.

“My new Commission colleagues are all highly experienced professionals with vast knowledge of and broad expertise in the criminal justice system. Our diverse backgrounds and expertise will bode well as the Commission works to address these complex issues in a bipartisan matter,” added Reeves.

As incoming chair of the U.S. Sentencing Commission, Reeves acknowledged his predecessor’s years of service on the Commission and praised him for the completion of important reports on recidivism, fentanyl, firearms offenses, compassionate release and more by the agency under his leadership.

JSU Department of Music Awarded $50,000 for cardiovascular study through African-influenced arts

to Jackson State students, faculty, staff and surrounding communities. JSU’s African Drum & Dance Ensemble students will be a part of the study, Alkebulan Music Philosophy, a local African music arts collective, and a number of guests spanning beyond the Mississippi borders.

The Chair of the Department of Music, Lisa Beckley-Roberts, Ph.D., credits this opportunity as a “great multidisciplinary approach” with the goal of reframing thoughts and interest in movement while tackling “populations who are disproportionately impacted by heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes.”

The Jackson State University Department of Music is bringing African dance and music to the community through a $50,000 grant funded by the Mississippi Department of Health via the Jackson Heart Study. The grant comes from the proposal of demonstration projects sought after by the MSDH that would address health disparities in underrepresented communities.

The study is an eight-month program, scheduled to launch sometime in November, designed to introduce community members to a new way of living through African dance, drumming and more. It will include people of various ages and gender backgrounds and are open

“They’ll commit to a three-month cycle. We’ll be tracking them throughout their time in the program to see if it impacts their weight, mood, blood pressure, and all of the things that are risk factors, particularly for African-Americans for heart disease,” said Beckley-Roberts. “We’ll do an initial health screening, and then we’ll begin working with them, so it’s a really exciting thing because it hasn’t been done here.”

Twice a month, community members will participate in African drumming paired with African-informed yoga, nutritional counseling and food journaling. With the help of the Jackson State University Health Center, participants will have access to scales, heart rate monitors and a library of workouts to practice independently in between in-person classes. Classes are scheduled to happen every other week and feature guest presenters.

Love for JSU: Alumna establishes $100K endowed criminal justice scholarship

Jackson State University alumna Jennifer Love recently established the $100,000 Jennifer Love Criminal Justice Law Enforcement Endowed Scholarship at her alma mater. Love, a 1983 graduate of the HBCU, is a retired corporate and law enforcement executive with over 27 years of FBI experience.

“I hope to encourage generations of JSU students to highly consider a career in law enforcement because this nation desperately needs law enforcement officials who reflect the communities they serve,” Love said. “Whether it be as police officers, federal agents, probation officers, prosecutors or defense attorneys, to name a few.”

The Hazelhurst, Mississippi, native said she also intends for the scholarship to help alleviate

student debt and galvanize others to action. Love retired from the FBI in 2012 as the assistant director of the Security Division, where she was responsible for all FBI security disciplines, which included physical security, information security, personnel security, the FBI police and the executive protection of the FBI director and the attorney general of the United States.

“I sincerely hope establishing the endowment will inspire other JSU alumni to give. God has truly blessed my life, and because of his favor, giving back has become one of my greatest joys because ’to whom much is given, much is required,’” she said.

The art of opera showcases stories through the eyes and background of characters adjacent to languages such as German, Spanish, Italian and French, immersing viewers in a multicultural and time-bending experience.

Jackson State University receives $1M grant toward Mid-South Innovation Corps Hub presented by National Science Foundation

The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently announced that five new NSF Innovation (I-Corps) Hubs would be launched as a part of the expansion of the National Innovation Network in partnership with Jackson State University – one of the key institutions to be funded. The I-Corps Hubs provides experiential entrepreneurial training to academic researchers across all fields of science and engineering.

Foundation grant will aid in growth of JSU and cybersecurity infrastructure expansion at minority institutions

During the 2022 National HBCU Week Conference in Washington, D.C, a consortium of HBCUs and other minority-serving institutions were presented a $15 million grant from the National Science Foundation to aid in establishing cyberinfrastructure at minority-serving institutions and bridge the digital divide.

The NSF grant is expected to provide HBCU and Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCU) with campus-specific cyberinfrastructure assessments

that foster cyberinfrastructure strategic plans. It will also fund key cyberinfrastructure technology investments to address barriers the university previously encountered when developing research or applying for cyberinfrastructure funding.

ackson State University alumnus and business owner Howard Catchings and his late wife, Danella Catchings, have donated more than $250,000 to their alma mater. Catchings has served on the JSU Development Foundation, which works collaboratively to secure financial resources to support the university, for 27 years.

An entrepreneur, Catchings is the owner and founder of H.D. Insurance Agency in Jackson, Mississippi. His agency has contributed over $74,000 to JSU. The walls of his 4,800-squarefoot State Street office are covered with hundreds of medals, plaques and certificates of achievement. A man who pursues greatness, Catchings views Jackson State as a source of great things.

"JSU has really provided ways for people to grow. A JSU degree gets you in the door no matter where you come from. Jackson State is the same as the other eight (state-supported) universities in the state of Mississippi," he said.

During a segregated nation and city, Catchings grew up in the neighborhood encompassing JSU. With a philanthropic and communitydriven spirit, a teenage Catchings made trips to the store for the elderly.

He was driven by the belief that only two types of people could wear ties, preachers or teachers, and he chose to become a teacher. He also became a lifeguard and swim coach, joined the newspaper and had a 17-year career as a teacher in the Jackson Public School District.

"I didn't realize that being the type of person I was during those years was developing me for the future," said Catchings, a lifetime member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. in the Jackson alumni chapter. He served as the first Black chairman of the Metro Jackson Chamber of Commerce, to name one of the many community organizations to which he has volunteered his time, and is the first Black person to become a member of the Country Club of Jackson.

In the 1960s, he started his career with the Jackson Public Schools and began selling

insurance policies to families and businesses. Upon receiving his first paycheck as a teacher, Catchings withdrew 200 one-dollar bills and hurried home to show his two brothers and mother.

With laughter, Catchings described sitting on the living room floor and making it "rain money." As a teacher, he made $3,200 annually, so $200 was a significant amount for him and his family at the time.

Catchings shared his love for Jackson State with his late wife, Danella, of 50 years, whom he met at JSU. His wife was a transfer STEM major student from Dillard University. The couple has four children: Sebrena Catchings, Howard Douglas Catchings IV, James Brownridge-Catchings and Daniel Catchings. All four siblings followed in their parents' footsteps and graduated from JSU. Catchings has established college funds for all nine of his grandchildren with the only stipulation that they must attend Jackson State.

Catchings believes his family fortune, including his children and grandchildren,

Alumni the jacksonian 38


stem from his education at Jackson State. Every JSU alumnus should be grateful for the opportunity to attend the university, he believes.

"Everything you do today is because of Jackson State. If you need a job, they will first ask you if you have a college degree. You're going to say ‘Yes,"’ he said. "Jackson State is just a part of my life and my children's lives. My wife's, too, even though she is deceased now."

Catchings plans to continue to support the university and help expand the campus beyond its current borders so that even more students can experience and thrive at JSU.

"I give to the place that got me where I am today,” he said.

The Pittmans contribute to JSU because they believe in the university, its faculty, staff and alumni.

"Through the grace and mercy of God, we have been successful in all endeavors we have pursued in our lives, and we extend appreciation to this prestigious institution. It is imperative for my wife, Alma, and I to give back by investing in a university that was built on elevation and empowerment," said Winston Pittman.

Winston Pittman is the president and CEO of Pittman Enterprise, the sixth-largest auto group in the nation, according to Black Enterprise Magazine. A board member of the Toyota/ Lexus Minority Dealers Association, he has served in leadership positions for the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers and the University of Louisville Board of Overseers.

She is the recipient of numerous awards and has established faith-based programs to promote wellness.

Among her many accomplishments, Alma Pittman serves as vice-chair of the Board of Trustees at HBCU Simmons College and is board member of Candler Hospital in Savannah, Georgia.

The Pittmans understand the importance of financial assistance for students.

"This partnership provides an opportunity to help others who lack financial resources to attend school. Jackson State, which means the world to me, is among several places we give back to make a difference in the lives of our young people," Alma Pittman said.

or more than a decade, Jackson State University alumni and entrepreneurs Alma and Winston Pittman, Ph.D., have consistently contributed to the university, particularly to the Department of Entrepreneurship and Business Management in the College of Business.

Their donation of $250,000 toward the development of the department met the requirements for a 100% percent gift match established by the U.S. Department of Education Title III program, bringing the total in contributions to $500,000.

A native of Grenada, Mississippi, Winston Pittman majored in business with a concentration in accounting at JSU. He is an active member of the Jackson State University National Alumni Association, Inc.

Alma Pittman, a native of Yazoo City, Mississippi, attended Hinds Community College and majored in nursing. She completed her clinical training at the University of Mississippi Medical Center and at a medical center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She began her career at St. Dominic-Jackson Memorial Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi, worked at Baptist Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky and then joined the medical team at Caretenders.

In 2011, the Pittmans received the JSU Entrepreneur of the Year Award. In 2012, the university honored them with the naming of the Winston R. Pittman and Alma Dent Pittman Auditorium in the College of Business. Both Alma and Winston Pittman received a Doctorate of Humane Letters degree during JSU’s 140th Spring Commencement and were described by then-interim JSU President Rod Paige as "philanthropic spirits" with a stellar track record of entrepreneurial success.
