During Capital Day for the Mississippi Economic Council (MEC) on Thursday, Jackson State University interim President Dr. Rod Paige urged legislators and business leaders to continue helping JSU move forward as one of the state’s most powerful and prestigious economic engines despite the HBCU’s financial challenges.

The MEC event provided hundreds of attendees an opportunity to network with statewide elected officials to discover what’s on tap for the upcoming legislative session.

Speaking inside the downtown Marriott, Paige – who had shared the stage with Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant, Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann and MEC chair Robin Robinson – said he’s committed to proving to leaders that they can “count on us facing those challenges head on, overcoming them and helping the university advance even further because Mississippi needs Jackson State, and the city of Jackson needs Jackson State.” Several key presenters agreed that JSU plays a vital role in the state’s expanding economy.

In addition, Paige said the urban university has provided thousands of jobs statewide and beyond and launched the careers of many JSU alumni, which include a number of elected state lawmakers.

That 'trump' money came from a GoFundMe campaign.  While it didn't come from trump, Whites will always fund things like this that support their supremacy, which Dega is doing. LOL!  That kind of White solidarity is why George Zimmerman and even Dylan Roof got so much money.
