JSU College of Business names auditorium for Pittmans

(JACKSON, Miss.) – Jackson State University named the auditorium of its College of Business for Winston R. Pittman Sr. and Alma Dent Pittman during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m., Friday, Oct. 19.

The Pittmans, first-time donors to the university, have contributed $250,000 that will be matched for a total of $500,000.

“This money will surely benefit students for years to come,
said David Hoard, vice president for Institutional Advancement. “We truly appreciate the Pittmans’ generosity.”

The Pittmans own Pittman Enterprises and have dealerships in Kentucky, Ohio, and Georgia that sell Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Nissan, CDAC, Lexus, Toyota, Ford, Lincoln Mercury, Scion, and Subaru vehicles.

“This is what we are supposed to do as a people,” said Alma Dent Pittman, a native of Yazoo City. “When you move away from your hometown and success happens, you give back to your community.”

Winston R. Pittman Sr., the president and CEO of Pittman Enterprises, is a native of Kilmichael and a Jackson State University alumnus.

This money, Pittman said, will benefit young, determined students who come to Jackson State University but may not have the funds they need.
