Jackson State University paid tribute to retiring faculty and staff last month in a special “Thee I Love” celebration held in the Student Center. The keynote speaker for the event was Dr. Mary M. White, also a JSU retiree with 43 years of experience at JSU. White’s most recent positions were chairperson and associate professor for the Department of Entrepreneurship and Small Business Mangement in the College of Business and interim vice president of Institutional Advancement/executive director of the JSU Development Foundation.

President William B. Bynum Jr., Linda Wilson, HRIS process and records manager, and Robin Pack, executive director of human resources, assisted with introductions and presented retirees with keepsakes honoring their many dedicated years of service.
