The Jackson State University College of Business (COB) will culminate its Five for Five Fund campaign with a Recognition Luncheon at 11:30 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 30 in the JSU Student Center Ballroom, located on the university’s main campus. JSU graduate Michael D. Brown, a renowned author and motivational speaker will be the guest speaker for the luncheon, which is being held to honor individuals, businesses, corporations and foundations that have supported the fund.
Brown, chief results officer for the Michael D. Brown Company, Inc., is a sought after career management consultant and a leading authority on delivering fresh results. He holds a B.B.A. in Management from Jackson State University and a M.B.A. in Global Management. He has spent over 15 years as a consultant and strategist for Fortune 100 companies and small businesses. Brown will sign copies of his book, “Fresh Customer Service,” before and after the luncheon.
The COB, which launched the Five for Five Fund campaign in August 2006 with a goal of raising $5 million in five years, has generated more than $5 million from both private and public entities. The money raised will provide scholarships for students and will afford the COB an opportunity to collaborate and focus on ideas that will strengthen the college and secure its future as one of the premiere business schools in the nation.
Gifts to the Five for Five Fund also will help ensure a superior, affordable education in a strong academic environment with qualified faculty and modern facilities for future generations of students in the COB. For additional information, call Jean Walker at 601-979-2411.
