JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — Jackson State Alumni are working to move the college forward after a rough week of tough news. They want to make sure the school continues to thrive.
The event “Thrive JSU” was held at the Rose. E. McCoy Auditorium.
A panel made up of JSU alums met with current students to talk about the importance of staying involved with the college.
Over the course of a week, it was revealed Jackson State’s reserve fund has dropped from $37 million to $4.2 in just about four years. Also, University President, Dr. Carolyn Meyers submitted a letter of resignation, effective November 1.
Also on the panel were state lawmakers and former JSU President Dr. John Peoples.
