On Monday, Nov. 7, the City of Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen adopted a “Resolution in Support of a New Stadium for Jackson State University,” the fourth largest university in the State of Mississippi.
Mayor Flaggs is calling on all JSU alumni in the State of Mississippi and surrounding areas to join in requesting State of Mississippi leaders like, Governor Tate Reeves, Lieutenant Governor Delbert Hosemann, and Mississippi Speaker of the House Philip Gunn to assist in the construction and funding of a new football stadium that should be located on the college’s campus.
“Jackson State is securing world-wide recognition for our State. College GameDay was held in Jackson, MS. Coach Dieon Sanders is bringing positive attention to our state and growing our state’s economy by doing so,” declared Mayor Flaggs. “At the very least, our State leadership could assist in helping construct and fund a stadium worthy for this University, the players, the students, and the visitors.”See a typo?
