JSU professor, Ally Mack, wins Excellence in Trade Education Award

Jackson State University professor and dean of the Division of International Studies Ally Mack was presented the Excellence in Trade Education Award on Nov. 12 by the Mississippi World Trade Center. This was the Center’s first year presenting an award for Excellence in Trade Education.  The award honors educational programs and individuals who have promoted and/or developed international business and turned import and export opportunities into Mississippi success stories.

“It was an honor to be the first recipient of the Mississippi World Trade Center award recognizing the crucial role that education plays in international trade,” Mack said. “Thus, I am delighted that Jackson State University was the first recipient and that it is being recognized for its efforts in this area.”

For the past 30 years, Mack has worked to internationalize Mississippi through the International Visitors Center of Jackson and the Mississippi Consortium for International Development. From her efforts, better engagement in the international trade arena has occurred.

  2. Congratulations on this award. It did not surprise me that it was awarded to you. I hope you come to the Annual Meeting of the American Political Science Association in Seattle Sept. 1-4, 2011. It is on the way to Japan, China and other great nations which should be part of your mission. Be sure to see Seattle’s new library, ride the feries ,take the Argosy waterfront tour, go to Pike Place Market, go to the locks and shop at Nordstrom’s.

  5. I’ve known and worked with Dr. Mack since 1985. She has always worked untirelessly to globalize Jackson State University as well as the state of Mississippi. She continues to promote and support internationalization through personal sacrifices. She’s known around the world and Mississippi will be hard pressed to find someone to fill her enormous shoes.

    P.S. Dr. Ally you are truly loved and admired.
