Dr. Allana Hamilton began her tenure as Jackson State Community College’s fifth president on January 10. Since that time, she has been very busy meeting a number of people in the community in addition to becoming familiar with the campus and meeting her new work family at the college.
“We have been looking for a good opportunity to officially introduce Dr. Hamilton to the community,” said John McCommon, public relations coordinator for the college. “We are so happy to have [her] at Jackson State and are anxious to let the people of our community get to know our new president.”
To introduce Dr. Hamilton, the faculty, staff, and students of Jackson State are holding a community reception at the college. The event will be held on Thursday, February 16 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the college’s student center on the main campus on North Parkway.
“Dr. Hamilton’s arrival is just one of many exciting things that are happening at Jackson State this year,” said McCommon. “We hope that the community will come out to meet our new president and celebrate this exciting time with us.”
