Nationally-syndicated radio personality and standup comedian Rickey Smiley will be at Jackson State Community College on Friday, December 13. Smiley is scheduled to be at the Student Center from 10:30 a.m. to noon for a meet-and-greet event with the public.
Smiley will be broadcasting his program from Thomas Media’s Hot 96 and 96 Kix stations in downtown Jackson. As a primary sponsor, JSCC will host the public event on its campus.
Smiley was originally scheduled to be at the college on November 8, but the event had to be rescheduled. “We are very happy Mr. Smiley was able to reschedule this event,” said Brian Gann, JSCC vice president of student services. “Everyone at Jackson State is excited about having a celebrity like Rickey Smiley on campus for the public.
Gann went on to say that this is a great opportunity for JSCC to make a positive connection within the community.
“We welcome anyone who would like to meet Mr. Smiley and learn more about JSCC,” Gann said. “Our staff will be on hand to talk with anyone interested in learning more about opportunities to improve their lives through education at Jackson State.”
