After nearly 15,000 votes were submitted online and on the JSUgo mobile app, the chosen theme for the 2013 JSU Homecoming festivities is “JSU: The Legacy, The Experience, The Dream”. The person who submitted the wining theme is JSU class of ’90 graduate Angela Moffett, whose prize includes tickets to the homecoming step show, concert, comedy show and football game. Additionally, Moffet will have an opportunity to serve as a judge during the 2013 Homecoming Parade. Lori Stewart, associate director for Campus Life and coordinator for pageants and productions in the JSU Division of Student Life, spoke with Moffett about her theme.
Stewart: Why did you feel it was important to participate with the contest?
Moffett: To show our students that the love for Jackson State University is everlasting and we must strive to consistently increase our university’s goal of becoming “The” prominent university in MS. Using not just words, but by our commitment to increasing our presence and financial responsibility in alumni organizations and the public. I felt my most perfect gift to the university was sending my daughter to further her education at MY Dear Ole College Home!! I look forward to the legacy she will create while there and experience the love and caring faculty and staff that I encountered.
Explain you theme, JSU: The Legacy, The Experience, The Dream!
The Legacy: Alumni who built on the dream of education for all students ; The Experience: Students who currently live the dream of the alumni, experiencing the things imagined and brought to fruition ; The Dream: Future students who will bring continued success to our university through service, scholarship and the love of our dear ole college home.
What is your most memorable JSU experience?
Auditioning for the “SONIC BOOM” and going up against Karen Brown to sing Sweet Love by Anita Baker, of course I came in second.
